Accommodation in Belize
Belize has a multicultural range of five-star establishments, though these are in the minority. While several Caribbean resorts exist on the coast, most establishments are simplistic and family-run. Rustic is the by-word here, with electricity in some areas being a luxury. A general rule of thumb is to pay more than $30 USD to ensure better quality. Numerous taxes exist including a 10% sales tax, a 9% hotel tax, and an additional 10–15% service charge. All registered accommodation is listed on the website of the Belize Tourism Board.
