November is a great time to visit Belize. The weather is nice (it’s the end of the rainy season) and it’s just pre-tourism high season (December to April) so you might still get a few good deals on tours and accommodations. I’ve written before on how to save on a Belize vacation so make sure to check that out.
As for things to do in November, here’s a list of tours and activities. And below are three main events worth exploring:
Battle of the Drums
Battle of the Drums is a celebration of Garifuna music and culture that takes place every year in Punta Gorda, Toledo. Some of the best drumming groups from all over Belize and Central America gather to compete and showcase their incredible talent and skills.
Toledo Community College in Punta Gorda.

Garifuna Settlement Day
November 19 is a national holiday that celebrates the arrival of the Garifuna people to Southern Belize (known as British Honduras at the time). They arrived in Stann Creek by sea in the early 1800s and now every year there is a reenactment followed by religious ceremonies and cultural celebrations.
Principally, Southern Belize (Hopkins, Punta Gorda and Dangriga) but minor reenactments happen throughout the country.

All day event…
A vacation is a great way to spend quality time with family and nothing beats getting away to somewhere warm for Thanksgiving. All of Belize celebrates Thanksgiving and you can surely expect restaurants and resorts to be serving turkey dinner and other thanksgiving treats. As to why Belize celebrates Thanksgiving, some say it’s due to the American media’s influence in Belize, however, it is also due to religion.
