Sept & Oct San Pedro Restaurant Closings: 2023

Each year, some restaurants and resorts close for vacations, and renovations and to celebrate Belize’s month of independence during our quiet season. September and October tend to be the slowest part of the tourism year in Belize and most definitely on Ambergris Caye.

But it’s also a GREAT time to visit! For the discounts, the celebrations and to hang out with the locals.

Busy and bustling San Pedro feels a bit more like a small village again during September and October.
