What current restrictions apply to Belize travel?

It's now easier than ever to travel to Belize. Our country continues to ease Belize travel restrictions and warmly welcomes travelers of all nationalities and vaccination statuses.

Arrival at Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE), any land border, or any seaport requires of all tourists:

1. proof of COVID-19 immunization (OR) a negative result from a COVID-19 Rapid Test administered upon arrival by the Ministry of Health for a fee of $50USD per person. (Children under five years old are exempt from proof of vaccination or testing requirements.)

2. purchase of travel insurance for $18 per person. (See Belize Travel Health Insurance FAQs for more on this new requirement.)

3. confirmation of a stay at an approved Tourism Gold Standard hotel. (That's us!)

COVID-19 On-Site Testing

There are several easy COVID-19 testing locations in San Pedro if you are returning to a country that requires a negative test to enter. Opt for a Rapid Antigen Test for a fee of $100USD per person. Turnaround time is typically under an hour.

For those guests returning to a location requiring a PCR Test, our healthcare partner also offers PCR tests with results available in two hours. The cost for this test is $275USD per person. See our front desk agent during your stay for more info about either of these testing options.

Hilton CleanStay

We know that you are as excited as we are to welcome back travel, even if it looks a little different these days. We also understand that our guests’ expectations for cleaning and disinfection have changed. That’s why Hilton is proud to present the Hilton CleanStay program. Hilton CleanStay builds on our already rigorous cleaning standards to provide complete peace of mind when you stay with Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club, Curio Collection by Hilton.

Our housekeeping room protocol begins with our team removing all used items from the room such as bedding and towels. Next, the team performs a full clean of the room and bathroom including vacuuming and mopping floors, and wiping down all surfaces with hospital-grade cleaners.

Then, using trusted products from 3M and Lysol, we do an additional disinfecting step for several surfaces in the room, including all switches and electronic controls, handles and knobs, major bathroom surfaces, and the remote control.

Our promise to you is to deliver the same level of reliable and friendly service you’d expect from Hilton, but with the added confidence of industry-leading hygiene practices created to keep you safe.
