Where does the sun rise in Belize?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Belize is San Pedro in the region of Belize. There, the sun rises at 5:49 am and sets at 6:05 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Benque Viejo del Carmen (Cayo) at 18:09.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Belmopan lies on the 17th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Belize, it lasts only an average of 25 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Belmopan, while in December it's 25 minutes.
