At Last, Belize Welcomes Tourists! When Can We Expect to See You?


When the first planes touch down at Belize’s International Airport on October 1st, repeat visitors are going to find that things have changed dramatically because so many new protocols have been implemented to keep travelers safe from spreading Covid-19. Consequently, you’ll want to bring along swimsuits, sunscreen and patience, because these re-opening measures could take a bit of time.

Once you land, you will proceed to the airport’s health screening center where your shoes will be sanitized and you will process through thermal imaging cameras to make sure you’re healthy. You will be asked to verify the information on the Belize health app that you submitted before arrival and verify certified COVID-19 test results. Once you pass muster, you’ll proceed to immigrations and customs for the usual checks.

But there’s one qualification that you must meet in order to get on with your vacation: You must show authorities that you have reservations to stay at a Tourism Gold Standard property. This new designation is especially important. It proves that the resort or hotel has passed a rigorous 9-point inspection standard designed to create the safest, healthiest environment of all for guests. These measures include no-contact check-in procedures, stringent social distancing parameters, hand sanitation hubs and regular temperature checks.

Your host will protect you even more by establishing a unique quarantining arrangement that assigns quarters to guests who are suspected of being ill so they remain isolated from other guests. There’s much more, including new and more sophisticated cleaning and sanitizing methods so your accommodations are maintained to World Health Organization standards.

Where can you find a safe place that meets all of these criteria and perhaps a few more? Chabil Mar Villas, where COVID-19 precautions are elevated to an art. While Chabil Mar won’t open for guests until November 1st, that doesn’t mean you can’t make your reservations now – especially once you read about measures taken to keep you in good health during the entirety of your stay.

From social distancing measures to the resort’s cancellation policies, you won’t find a resort as well prepared for your visit as Chabil Mar, and happily, nothing about the resort’s activity menu has changed. You’ll still roam 400 feet of private beach, swim in both of Chabil Mar’s beachside infinity pools, frequent the private pier overlooking the sea and borrow complimentary bicycles, kayaks, paddle Boards.

This is your chance to see how royalty vacation! You don’t have to budge from your lounge chair for sustenance because roaming butler service takes care of your every request for drinks and casual dining as you enjoy the good life.

Reservations should be made as soon as possible because fewer guests than usual will be booked at the resort after November 1st for safety reasons, and packages and specials tend to be grabbed up fast because they save money and take the stress out of the visit you’ve been waiting forever to make!
