Currency: Belize Dollar (BZD), 2:1 to the US Dollar
Please note that there is a $35 exit fee for leaving Belize.
Belize is widely populated by American expats, and was a British colony for many years, so English is widely spoken.
The main strength of Belize lies in its natural beauty. Diving and snorkeling are incredibly popular activities, and there are Mayan ruins to explore. If you’re able, a trip to the Great Blue Hole is essential.
Most beaches, as of April 2019, were highly congested with sargasso seaweed. I would recommend traveling to Secret Beach in Ambergris Key for a proper beach experience.
