Reservations are made by using our Credit Card Authorization Form. The form will be e-mailed to you once the details of the trip/package are confirmed.
We accept credit cards including VISA and Master Card. Credit card payments are charged in Belize dollars using our local credit card machine. The exchange rate in Belize is $2BZD to $1USD. However, the final amount on your statement will be a little greater due to currency conversion and bank/credit card charges. The amount varies but is approximately $1 for every $100. Please note that we have no control over these fees, we recommend you check with your bank/credit card company if you are unsure about these fees.

Belize is generally subject to fair conditions with sunny skies and calm seas, with the occasional squalls passing through. Weather events outside of the normal range are very unusual and rare and occur during passing “Northers” and tropical storms. Since many of our activities are subject to weather, some activities may be cancelled or made not available in some weather conditions. However, they may be postponed until the next available day.
If you have a confirmed reservation for a trip and the weather appears to be questionable, we ask that you check in with us at the contact numbers provided as to the status of the trip. Often it might rain in the morning but then it clears up and we can still head out on the tour.
