Belize Tourism Board
The Belize Tourism Board has released enhanced health and safety protocols as part of Belize's commitment to keep Belizeans, the tourism industry, and our visitors safe.
To meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19, the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) has launched its “Tourism Gold Standard” Recognition Program for hotels alongside the country’s national tourism guidelines. The program seeks to enhance health and safety standards for cleaning practices, employee and guest interactions, and workplace policies and standard operating procedures.
Blue Caribbean Belize Management is committed to the safety and education of our staff and guests. Prior to your arrival, we'll schedule a call to go over what to expect during your stay with us. Please view the BTB's COVID-19 Update for Travelers, and review the key points below.
What to expect
The Belize Health App must be downloaded and info completed prior to traveling. You’ll receive a unique QR code used for contact tracing while in Belize. At the Belize airport, be prepared for thermal scanning and to show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior. Alternatively, you’ll be rapid tested at your own cost. Those with above normal temperatures or who test positive will be quarantined.
Upon arrival, your luggage will be sanitized, and our staff will conduct a non-invasive temperature check for each guest in your party. Those with a temperature at or above 100°F (37.78°C) will be subject to a secondary screening. To protect everyone’s safety, if your secondary screening registers a temperature at or above 100°F, our team will assist you in isolating until advised further by the Belize Ministry of Health.
The frequency of cleaning and sanitizing has been increased in all public spaces with an emphasis on frequent high-touch surfaces, including elevators, public bathrooms, room keys, handrails, seating, and water sports equipment. Multiple hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the property. All in-unit cleaning supplies and processes follow the BTB’s Gold Standard guidelines for proper sanitization.
For the protection of yourself and those around you, a face mask is required to be worn at all times when outside of your unit, except when swimming. Children under the age of 6 are not required to wear a mask. Please be sure to bring an adequate supply of face masks with you to Belize to cover your entire stay with us. Hand sanitizer and disposable masks and gloves will be available for purchase at the property.
Please help to keep everyone safe by staying a minimum distance of 6 feet away from others, including staff and other guests. This includes when in the pools, on the pool deck, and on the beach or pier. We’ll prearrange housekeeping services with you to ensure that no members of your party are in the unit while the housekeeper is there. Contactless interactions are encouraged; please use your provided phone to contact staff.
Our staff has completed training on the new health and safety guidelines and is responsible for ensuring that everyone on the property, including themselves, is following the new protocols. Each of our staff member’s temperature is checked before and during their shift. Please be respectful of our team’s personal space by using your local phone to contact us. If an in person conversation can’t be avoided, practice proper distancing.
