I receive a lot of questions about the weather and hurricane season and how it will affect our guests stay at Thatch Caye Resort. Typically, during the rainy season we will get daily showers, however usually not enough to disrupt any of our excursions. The showers are usually quite short, and often a nice relief from the heat.
During my stay at Thatch Caye I watched a storm roll in across the ocean. It was really fascinating to watch as a sheer wall of water headed towards us. I went inside and watched the storm pass. Within 20 minutes, I was back out enjoying a book in a hammock.
The rainy season in Belize runs from about April 1st until mid-December. Thatch Caye is closed from September 15th to December 1st as a safety precaution against the time of year when tropical storms are at their maximum force.
A bonus of being located on the cayes is that the majority of the storms go over top of us towards the mainland and the mountains, which tend to attract the more heavy rainfalls.
