Know Before You Go

Snake Cayes Belize

Are you ready to plan your trip to Belize? Well you’ve come to the right place. I have worked in the tourism industry for over 10 years and have been writing this blog for almost 5 years.  Throughout that time I have used my local knowledge to make belizeadventure.ca a resource rich website filled with the best Belize travel tips.

Here’s an easy-to-read guide on things you need to know before you travel to Belize, from health and safety concerns, to food and hotel recommendations, to what to bring and or buy. The tips below serve as a 10 step Belize travel guide that offers information on when to visit, where to go and what to do.

1. Travel Documents

Most people don’t need visas to enter Belize. All that is needed is a passport that is valid for more than 6 months. www.belizeadventure.ca/travel-tips/entry-requirements

Another important consideration is Belize’s airport departure tax and/ or border exit fees www.belizeadventure.ca/travel-tips/departure-tax
