In an effort to keep all travelers to Belize informed, we are providing the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 below.
Belize will reopen for tourists to explore once again on Oct. 1, the Belize Tourism Board announced on Monday.
Previously, Belize announced they would reopen in August however the opening had been delayed, “in an overabundance of caution for visitors and residents alike,” according to the tourism board’s press release.
Come October, visitors will need to book with a hotel that complies with their 9-point initiative entitled, the Tourism Gold Standard Recognition Program, in which the approved hotels — listed on their tourism site — have implemented health and safety standards including online check-in and check-out and mandatory mask-wearing in public spaces. Both guests and employees will have to undergo daily health checks and the hotels have set aside “isolation/quarantine rooms” for anyone who may have contracted the virus.
