Belize is a hot place all year round and even though you’re dreaming of sunny winters, you might be underestimating what a warm winter and sun all year round are like. We recommend that you bring cool clothing; light colors, cotton, short pants, sleeveless shirts, flip flops, etc. We’d also recommend you bring a wind-breaker, especially if you’re visiting the islands, since it can get a little windy.
The only time you might need a light sweater would be if you’re spending time in the mountains during cool months. When we say "cool months" we think 65 F is cold! You'll see most Belizeans pull out their sweaters then, while visitors walk around in shorts.
PS: Don’t forget your hat and sun block and the fact that "No shoes, no shirt, no problem," is a common saying here.
