April 2024: Daily Events Calendar on Ambergris Caye

This is a list of the many April events and activities around the island on Ambergris Caye.

The Weather in April: April in Belize is quite warm and very dry. (There are many Aprils we don’t see one drop of rain on Ambergris Caye) The mainland feels some of the highest temperatures of the year in April, the cayes and beaches are generally kept cooler with what locals call “The Easter Winds”. (For the most reliable forecasts, I use Windfinder.com. Good for a few days out…not weeks!)

April Events Calendar

April is a great time to visit Belize.

If it is your first time on the island, see Your Guide to Ambergris Caye.

April is the end of the “highest season” (Christmas to April). The weather is warm and lovely but more than that…winter is ending in the countries to our north (especially the USA and Canada) and spring is starting to…spring. Tourism starts to slow down going into the summer months.

Big Events, Holidays and Festivals in April: The big event for Belize in April is The Belize Agriculture and Trade Show (aka Agric) at the Belmopan Fairgrounds from April 26 to April 28th. It is the biggest gathering of Belizeans of the year. It is hot, dusty, crowded and AWESOME. I went in 2014 (time to get back) – here is Part One (THAT FERRIS WHEEL!) and Two (The animals and plants and the rodeo!

The 2014 Kids Part of the rodeo…so cool

Easter came early this year – on the very last day of March but Easter Monday, April 1st is still a public holiday in Belize. (As well as one of my favorite days of the year for other reasons…)

Here is my list of events for Ambergris Caye in April.

If you are a business that wants to add to this list, please send me the information at [email protected].

    Thanks for this awesome run-down!!
    As Easter is this weekend (31 March 2024) and US taxes are due 15 April 2024…what is meant by 22 April being Easter Monday with full / sold out ferries?
    I’m planning to book ferry ticket day of Saturday 20 April, so am curious.
    Thank you!
    (Also bought your book a fewonyhs ago – has been helpful to plan and learn from a local!)

      Thanks for the nudge – it is a total copy/paste error on my part and you haven’t been the first person confused. Let me change now. Seriously this time!
