Belize Public and Bank holidays are set at the national level, therefore, they are observed similarly across the country’s six districts. Banks, government offices, schools, and businesses are closed during these holidays.

However, in popular tourist spots, most tourism-related businesses remain open to accommodate visitors. This typically includes tour operators, souvenir shops, and restaurants. Chinese supermarkets are also usually open since most Belizeans buy groceries on a daily basis.
