What are a few tips for visiting Belize during peak season?

My one big tip would be to book your tours in advance of your trip if you already know what interests you, whether it’s a snorkeling trip or an inland excursion. Tours are usually priced lower when you reserve your spot ahead of time and higher for walk-ins. I also recommend that visitors check a hotel or tour operator's social media site for any discounts or package specials, which are sometimes posted a month ahead of peak season. My final tip would be to reserve your rooms in advance, as it's quite common for the best resorts to be full during the months of December and January in particular.
