The climate of Caracol (Belize)
Caracol is an important archaeological site in the Cayo district in Belize. The site mainly consists of pyramid-shaped temples from the Maya culture. The city of Caracol was an important city for the Mayas during the 4th century BC. During its peak about 180,000 people lived in the city covering a surface area of 168 square kilometers. The city was discovered in 1937 and partly opened for the public. A team of archaeologists still excavate parts of the city every day. Archaeological finds are made here every day. Caracol has a tropical rainforest climate. Because the city is situated at a higher altitude temperatures are a little lower than you would expect from a tropical rainforest climate. However, the amount of precipitation and humidity figures are as expected. The weather is quite constant all year round. Rain falls all year round. However, rainfall is usually short lived. Temperatures are constant all year round.
