Bliss in Belize: The land of natural wonders begins to reopen

Belize gives the green light to tourism resuming - with new Gold Standard protection measures to keep travellers safe.

The Prime Minister, Dean Barrow, reopened the international airport earlier this month and the first few flights were full of arrivals from Miami and Houston, US, and Cancun, Mexico.

Despite the partial reopening, the borders with Mexico and Guatemala remain closed. To keep travellers safe, there are enhanced health and safety protocols for hotels, restaurants and tour operators.

The new Tourism Gold Standard is a nine-point programme which ensures employees and travellers are confident about the cleanliness and safety of Belize.

Belize would make for a perfect bucket list trip in 2021, as it consists of a varied line up, including Mayan cities, national parks, the Big Rock Falls and the world’s second largest barrier reef; coupled with plenty of tourist activities to choose from, such as rainforest hiking, diving, cave exploration, wild swimming,  as well as some private island getaways.

Next year, the country will mark 40 years of its independence from Britain, with festivities beginning on September 10.

Visitors will be required to take a negative PCR coronavirus test on arrival. If the result is positive, passengers will be placed in quarantine at a Gold Standard hotel until the Ministry of Health gives clearance.
