    The Water Sports Technical Committee embarked on a journey to San Pedro to conduct testing on a few of the first High risk Water Sports Activities to verify the safety, the security of the environment and to observe any anomalies. The objective for exposing the committee members to the various water sports activities is to identify any hazards which could be observed or tested while conducting these activities. Subsequently, the committee would be able to come up with effective solutions to rectify any hazards identified in the deliberation of the appropriate standards for water sports activities in Belize.

    Belize recently conducted a CALIDENA Diagnostic of its shrimp industry, incorporating both the public and private sector. It was three days of intensive brainstorming to devise an Action Plan for the industry to aid in the development of shrimp and especially for the export market. The process was initiated with funding through the German Metrology Institute, and under the auspices of the Belize Bureau of Standards. It was facilitated with technical expertise from Germany and the Caribbean, led by CROSQ. Here are a few of the highlights from the three-day process.

    http://www.belizeambassador.com/belize-weather-time-visit/ If you are thinking of visiting Belize, you might try to look for the best time to visit this country. However, there is no really fixed answer to this query. This is because it is always a great time to visit Belize, although visitors look for different opportunities when choosing the best vacation time. For instance, there is no exact time of the year for the best scuba diving in Belize, but if you dive with whale sharks, it is ideal to go from March to June. There are some major factors that contribute to having a more enjoyable vacation in Belize.

    For the latest news across Belize, visit: http://edition.channel5belize.com/ Several weeks ago, we reported the news of local producers being up in arms after a Chinese businessman was given permit to import over fifty thousand pounds of ham for the Christmas. We were unable to reach the C.E.O. in the Ministry of Agriculture for comment on the incident back then, but today, we asked Minister of State for Trade and Commerce, Tracy Panton about the reports. The Belize Bureau of Standards, which falls within her ministry, would make recommendations to the Belize Agricultural Health Authority who would then issue permits to the importers. But according to Panton, the amount of hams imported is dependent on the local production and if the demand locally is not enough, then the deficit is impor...

http://www.belizeambassador.com/belize-weather-time-visit/ If you are thinking of visiting Belize, you might try to look for the best time to visit this country. However, there is no really fixed answer to this query. This is because it is always a great time to visit Belize, although visitors look for different opportunities when choosing the best vacation time. For instance, there is no exact time of the year for the best scuba diving in Belize, but if you dive with whale sharks, it is ideal to go from March to June. There are some major factors that contribute to having a more enjoyable vacation in Belize. Belize’s Weather: High Season and Low Season The high season for tourists in Belize is between November and May. This is the period that simultaneously runs with the dry season, which is the best time for Belize weather. Unintentionally, according to the Belize weather bureau, this point in time also matches with North America’s winter season. This means that a lot of Americans and Canadians escape the cold looking for warmer climate. Low season in Belize runs from June to October. Most travelers strategically visit Belize at this time to take advantage of the lower rates. Most tourism businesses drop their tour and room rates from 30% to 50% to accommodate the dip in tourist arrivals. Belize’s Weather and Climate Just like with anything else, weather can make or break your vacation; the same also goes with Belize. There are only two seasons in Belize weather underground: the dry season and the rainy season. Each of these has their own pros and cons. It is important that you first determine the activities that you want to do before you visit the country. There are places to go and things to do in Belize that are best done during a certain time or weather. This way, you can determine the best weather and climate for your trip and, ultimately, choose the best time to visit Belize. Dry Season – This is somewhat Belize’s winter minus all the snow and freezing cold. During the months between November and January, the temperature in Belize drips a bit, giving cool windy days with lots of sunshine. Starting February all through May, it tends to be hotter with almost no clouds. The good weather permits for scheduling fun activities, including jungle adventures and aquatic sports. After all, the country is an active destination. The dry season is also the high tourism season of Belize, and certain towns and spots can be crowded with tourists. However, keep in mind that Belize is still relatively unknown and does not really attract tourists compared to other countries. Wet Season – This is equivalent to Belize’s low season for tourism, which runs from June to October. At this time, Belize experiences sunny days with unexpected rain showers. Fortunately, unless there is a tropical storm, these showers only last for an hour or two. Also, remember that hurricane season in Belize at this time and a potential hurricane can make your vacation run short. Another negative in times of rain is that certain tours like diving or snorkeling and caving might be cancelled for a few days until it is deemed safe. Belize’s rainy season might have many issues to consider, but most people think it’s a fair trade for saving money and avoiding crowds. Belize’s Festivals and Special Events The people of Belize are lively, energetic people who enjoy any opportunity to have a good time drinking, dancing and being festive. And with some of the merriest events in Central America, many visitors visiting Belize make sure that their time coincides with certain celebrations. Perhaps the popular tourist event is definitely Lobster Festival. This festival takes place in Caye Caulker, San Pedro and Placencia. Every respective location immediately conducts their festivals after the opening of the Lobster season which takes place mid-June every year. Another event is the International Costa Maya Festival that brings big crowds from everywhere to Ambergris Ambergris Caye, where lively San Pedro Town hosts a week of beauty pageants and parties. Visiting in September is a great time to see national pride as Belizeans celebrate Carnival, St. George’s Caye Day and Indepedence Day. Other interesting events and festivals in Belize include the Battle of the Drums, Toledo Cacao Festival, La Ruta Maya River Challenge and Garifuna Settlement Day. Visit Belize Now To Experience Its Tropical Weather Knowing all these, it is best that you are aware of the Belize weather by month, like knowing the Belize weather in April for your April trip to Belize. Of course, there is good weather, fun activities like festivals and other effects, and either opting to mingle with the crowds during the high season or taking advantage of off peak rates during low season.
