Sleeping

Accommodation throughout the country varies greatly. For the budget traveller there are options in most towns of interest, although prices are higher than in neighbouring countries. While standard hotel options exist, the area around San Ignacio offers several secluded hideaways of varying price and to the south there are options for staying in Maya communities which helps to maintain the cultural identity of the region. The Belize Tourist Board promotes good hotels through the
Toucan Trail
, www.toucantrail.com. All hotels are subject to 9% government hotel tax (on room rate only) and 10% service charge is often added. Camping sites are gaining in popularity, and there are private camping facilities to be found in most tourist areas, with a variety of amenities offered. Camping on the beaches, in forest reserves or in any other public place is not allowed.
