Any ideas on what to do in Central America during September? Well, we’ve got you covered! September is one of the most patriotic and exciting months of the year in Central America as many countries, such as Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica and, of course, the world’s best-kept secret, Belize, celebrate their independence!

All Central American countries host massive cultural performances and lively festivities to raise their flags with pride and celebrate their history and freedom.

September in Caye Caulker, Belize

In Belize, every district prepares an itinerary of celebrations for the community. Although Caye Caulker is a slow-paced and charming island, it also joins the rest of Belize in celebrating the patriotic month of September with extravagant activities and festivals. Two significant events in Belize during this time include the Battle of St. George’s Caye on the 10th of September and Independence Day on the 21st of September.

The streets of Caye Caulker colorfully come to life during these days. The native islanders dress in beautiful outfits and masked costumes as they parade through the streets to the sound of drums and upbeat music. Students in the parade proudly wave up their flags as golf carts decorated in red, blue, and white follow behind, blowing horns and hailing, “Hipp Hipp – Hurray!”
