And June’s hot weather presents the perfect opportunity for hiking, with many trails leading to refreshing waterfalls. Some of my favourite jungle destinations include Mountain Pine Ridge, Bocawina National Park and the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary.

Join the festivities on June 28th for the annual Dia de San Pedro in San Pedro Town in Ambergris Caye. This day is dedicated to honouring the island’s patron saint and paying tribute to the fishermen and founding fathers who have contributed to the island’s growth from a humble fishing village to its present-day state. Enjoy a lively fair with cultural dances, food events, thrilling games, tournaments, and fun parties.

Every June, the coastal Garifuna village of Hopkins in Southern Belize hosts the annual Mango Fest, a delightful celebration dedicated to you guessed it: mango! Immerse yourself in the tropical ambiance as you indulge in the various mango-themed culinary delights, from mouthwatering dishes to refreshing beverages.

You can also find papaya, bananas, pineapple, and coconut, which are typically available year-round.
