Expanding wellness sector in Belize

 

Under the country’s Tourism Gold Standard Recognition Programme, the Belize Tourism Board has implemented stringent health and safety protocols aimed at enhancing hotel and restaurant cleaning practices, and tourism organisation operating procedures.

All Belize travellers have a COVID-19 testing option through American Airlines' partnership with LetsGetChecked, an at-home PCR test for consumers planning to travel to the country.

To enter, visitors need to download the Belize Health App and complete the information within 72 hours of arriving, and either bring along a negative PCR test result done within 72 hours of travel or be tested upon arrival at the Belize airport at a cost of US$50 per person.

If the test is negative, visitors are free to explore the country while using Gold Standard accommodation, tour operators, transport providers, tourism sites, restaurants, and gift shops. These providers have all implemented enhanced health and safety protocols. Only half are currently open.

The Belize Tourism Board mainly targets US travellers. While there is some health tourism there is almost no medical tourism.
