Guide to Tipping in Belize and Covid Travel Information
This article will help you with a large variety of tipping circumstances and a general guideline of what’s appropriate. I am also adding the current Belize curfew and Covid travel rules at the top of the page to help you in planning and knowing what is important to observe at this time.
Getting Around Ambergris Caye
Depending on where you stay, you will likely want to rent a golf cart for at least part, if not all of your trip. Keep in mind ‘island-style traffic’ is likely a bit different than you are used to. Because Ambergris Caye started as a fishing village and is only about 1/4 mile wide in San Pedro town, our streets are on the narrow side. This means you will have to pay a bit of extra attention to foot and two-wheeled traffic. It also means occasionally you will find oncoming traffic in your lane. As for parking, do not park at a red curb. They can be hard to spot with the dust and faded paint so look carefully, it could save you a 25 Belize dollar ticket. Beach cruiser bike rentals and walking are also fun options to see more of the island.
San Pedro Weather
While it’s the rainy season in Belize, and your weather app is likely showing you a lot more precipitation than you might like on vacation, do not worry. Generally, our rain hits at night, early morning, or a fast afternoon shower, leaving most of the day hot and sunny. My write-up Belize Vacation Rain Explained will help put your mind at ease.
