What to Pack for Belize (and what to leave behind)

What to Pack for Belize

Things to bring for a trip to Belize

Buying your plane ticket to Belize and not forgetting your passport are only half the equation to enjoying a wonderful vacation in Belize. Before you head out the door, make sure you’ve got everything you need to have a great time in Belize.

Clothing

The balmy temperatures and ample sunshine are big reasons why Belize is such a popular vacation destination. Bring lots of loose, light, breathable clothing. Belize is a very casual country, so you won’t need any formal wear even when dining in restaurants.

Nights can occasionally be cool, so be sure to bring a sweater or hoodie with you just in case. Definitely be sure to leave your scarves, mittens, and other winter wear at home, though!

The Sun

The sun is a powerful force in Belize. Individuals with fair skin should make sure that they have adequate sunscreen and other forms of protection from the sun like hats and sunglasses.

Prepare for Adventure

If you plan on doing more than relaxing on the beach, be sure to bring everything you’ll need for inland explorations. Items to include in your suitcase: hiking shoes, long-sleeved shirts, long pants, a flashlight, and insect repellant.

Water and Waves

Whether you just want to dip your toes in the surf or head out deeper to enjoy world-class scuba diving and snorkeling, be sure to bring a bathing suit, beach accessories, flip-flops, and beach towels. You can also bring your snorkeling and/or dive gear if you have it, but the good news is that these items can also be purchased and/or rented in Belize.

Money

The currency in Belize is the Belizean Dollar (BZD), permanently pegged at two to one to the U.S. dollar. The good news is that American cash and credit cards are accepted pretty much everywhere. A great tip is to make sure you have enough cash on you when you arrive to make it to a hotel or bank.

Medications and Toiletries

If you forget some of your daily toiletries at home, you can find it in Belize without too much effort. But definitely be sure to bring any prescription medications that you take as well as a note from your doctor to avoid any mix-ups.

Belize is increasingly focusing on sustainable tourism practices and prefers that visitors bring non-toxic toiletries and personal items that have a minimal impact on the environment.
