Pets are like family and some people like to take them on vacation too. Others may be moving to Belize and need to line up a place to overnight with a pet depending on the time of arrival and how they choose to get where they are going. This list of Pet-Friendly Hotels created by the Belize Tourism Board is a great resource for anyone travelling with pets in Belize. No matter how you book your accommodations, always double-check with the Hotel on their current pet policies.

For your convenience, each hotel listed will be linked in blue to their website, Trip Advisor reviews and best pricing for reservations. A pdf will soon be made available with the full list to go with the Hurricane Pet Plan. Hotels and resorts with a Trip Advisor 3 star and lower were left off in the interest of time due to Tropical Storm Earl fast approaching. I do recognize as long as it was a safe option some people may settle for lesser accommodations than they might normally.
