We are very happy to see more and more international saltwater destinations coming online this week. Countries are taking proactive steps to establish protocols for reopening to tourism as are our preferred operations. Belize still has one of the most robust and thorough programs in place for reopening and maintaining safety.
The following operations have met Belize’s stringent “Gold Standard” requirements and will be ready to accept guests starting October 1, 2020. All operations have good availability at this time. All travelers to Belize must arrive in country with a negative PCR COVID-19 test result (taken within 72 hours), install an application on their phone and complete a health questionnaire.
More information about Belize’s reopen plan can be found HERE.
