Should I exchange money before I travel to Belize?

Definitely! Exchanging your cash before heading to Belize is a wise choice. When you arrive, having Belize dollars on hand is ideal for first expenses like travel and small buys. It’s best to have Belize dollars ready when you touch down.

What is the best currency to take to Belize?

The Belize dollar is the official currency of Belize and therefore is the best currency to take. But, in some spots, you might find other currencies accepted.

In Belize, some places accept US dollars. This is especially true in touristy places like Caye Caulker, Ambergris Caye, and Placencia.

But remember, even though US dollars are accepted, you might get change in Belize dollars. It’s handy to have smaller US dollar notes for easier transactions.

US dollars might not be as commonly used in less touristy areas, so having some Belize dollars is wise. Markets, local shops, and small businesses often prefer the local currency.

A mix of US dollars and Belize dollars is the best bet when visiting Belize.

Is it better to use US dollars in Belize?

It depends on how and where you plan to spend your time and money in Belize. 

Using US dollars is quite common and widely accepted in more touristy areas. It’s convenient, and you don’t always need to exchange your money for Belize dollars. 

Just make sure to carry smaller denominations, as change might be given in Belize dollars.

For everyday spending, you’ll want Belize dollars.

Can you use your debit card in Belize?

Yes. You can use your debit (or credit) card in Belize, but cash is king, especially in less touristy areas and local markets. For everyday spending, you’ll want Belize dollars.

Card cards are more commonly accepted in bigger towns like Belize City and San Ignacio. So it’s smart to have both cash and a card for flexibility.

Friendly tip: Let your bank know you’re heading to Belize to avoid card hiccups while away.

Should I bring cash to Belize?

Yes, cash is a big deal in Belize. Here’s why:

  • Cash is king, from busy markets to small local shops. It’s perfect for those little purchases like snacks or souvenirs.
  • ATMs are around in towns, so grabbing more cash when needed is easy.
  • Dealing with cash can help dodge card fraud. Keep your cash secure, and don’t flash large amounts around. Also, keep an eye on exchange rates; sometimes, using your card can work out better.

Overall, having both cash and cards is the way to go. Use cash for the small stuff and save the card for the bigger spends. 

If you end up with travel money left over after your trip, don’t forget you can convert your Belize dollars to pounds with us.

Is it better to use cash or card in Belize?

In Belize, cash often wins, especially for smaller buys in local markets and street food stalls. Many places still prefer cash payments over credit and debit cards.

But, credit cards find their place in larger stores, eateries, and hotels in towns. It’s handy to carry both to keep things smooth.

How much cash should I take to Belize?

Budget traveller 

If you’re keeping things on the cheap, say around £30 a day, you’ll be set for hostels, public transport, and budget eats. You’ll even have some left for freebies like walking tours or chilling on the beach.

Mid-range traveller 

With a mid-range budget of about £75 a day, you can up your game. Think private rooms, eating out more, and maybe a few drinks. You can hop taxis or buses between towns and enjoy activities like snorkelling or jungle treks.

Luxury traveller 

For a splash-out trip, budget £220 or more a day. You’re looking at nice hotels, dining wherever you fancy, and maybe some internal flights. Go all out on tours and activities for a trip to remember.

These are just rough figures, so your spending might vary. We’re here to give you a rough guide to help with your budgeting.

Coins in Belize

Coins in Belize are an essential part of the nation’s currency, complementing the colourful array of banknotes. Coins are super handy for things like bus fares or market buys.

Belizean coins come in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 cents, as well as a $1 coin. 

The designs often feature the country’s coat of arms, local fauna such as the tapir (Belize’s national animal), and other symbols significant to Belizean identity and history. 

Belize’s currency import and export regulations

In Belize, you can bring in and take out up to BZ$20,000 or its equivalent in other currencies without declaring it. 

For amounts over this limit, you must declare it to customs. Always check the most current regulations before you travel, as these rules can change.

Always stick to the rules when moving currency around, and double-check the regs for foreign currency in your destination before you jet off.

Yes, they speak English in Belize. It’s the official language, so you’ll hear it all over the country.

If you’re from the UK, you don’t need a visa to visit Belize for short trips. You can stay up to 30 days without one.

For Belize, make sure you’re up-to-date on routine vaccines. It’s also a good idea to get Hepatitis A and Typhoid shots, as these can be picked up through food and water.

The best time to visit Belize is from late November to mid-April. This period is the dry season, making it perfect for outdoor activities and exploring the beautiful beaches and jungles. The weather is sunny and warm, ideal for snorkelling, diving, and sightseeing.

The cheapest time to travel to Belize is during the rainy season, from May to November. There are fewer tourists during this time, and you can find better deals on accommodation and flights. Just be prepared for some rain, especially in the afternoons.

In Belize, popular foods include rice and beans, often served with chicken, beef, or seafood. 

Another favourite is stew chicken, which is richly flavoured and tender. Don’t miss trying fry jacks, which are fluffy, fried dough pieces perfect for breakfast. 

Seafood is also big in Belize, with dishes like conch ceviche and grilled lobster being must-tries. 

For a taste of local culture, sample the traditional Maya dish called “pibil,” which is slow-cooked meat, usually pork, marinated in citrus juice and annatto seed.
