Big Belize Travel Deal

Duty Free Discount in BelizeBelize is one of a handful of countries that I am aware of that allows you the option to purchase inbound duty-free. Some people even use it to help move through customs faster if the “nothing to declare” line is too long. It is super easy to pop into duty-free and purchase a bottle; then declare, and you can enjoy making yourself a welcome cocktail when you arrive at your destination.

Another reason to stop and shop before you clear customs is a Big Belize Discount, Premier Tax and Duty-Free Store has reached out to team up and give tacogirl readers 15% off their already great prices. Premier is located right beside baggage claim at Philip Goldson International Airport and offers travelers a large assortment of tax-free products. Liquor, tobacco, fragrances, watches, jewelry, and other gift items are available. 

Alcohol savings are already substantial at Premier Duty-Free, with a 15% tacogirl promo code they are exceptional. Below is a comparison chart for premium alcohol and cigarettes between Premier pricing versus shopping on Ambergris Caye. You can see duty-free is significantly less, even before the 15% comes off. Mainland savings may not be as much but will still be considerable.

Since people use the tacogirl flight code to fly many places beyond the San Pedro Airport, I made an executive decision to add a second monthly cause that will represent and benefit all districts; the Dangriga Cancer Center. My friend Cheryl currently gets treatments there and she has been giving me an education about how much they could use the help. She turned me onto one of the staff named Pauline and I was able to start getting some basic numerical data. Currently, 55 patients who are receiving care at the center require subsidy because they cannot afford the life-saving cancer treatments. Once a person’s diagnosis becomes cancer related, they are referred to the Cancer Center. People just have to get themselves there and they will receive treatment whether they can afford it or not. This creates a huge financial burden on the Center, which is where you can help through simple code use.

Use the flight code horizon on and at no extra cost, you will be making a donation to the Dangriga Cancer Center which serves countrywide Belize. Click to learn more about Code For a Cause and see 2018 donation totals.

Flight Code Donation

Remember while I can no longer offer a tacogirl tropic air discount (since 2018), using flight code for a cause horizon is still higely beneficial. Now it helps crush cancer (at no extra cost to you.) The Belize Cancer Center in Dangriga has a monthly subsidy cost of more than 10,000 to cover. Using flight code helps the Cancer Center help people who cannot afford treatment that are strongly in need of medical assistance.

By using both the duty-free promo code and flight code you have a great start to your trip even before you reach your tropical destination.

To instantly get the promo code for 15% off your purchase just ask for a tacogirl reader discount befor you chech out.

Thank you for starting your vacation with Belize travel deals, and making a big difference in Belize.

Hello Laure,
do you know if we can bring duty free purchases in cabin for internal flights or same regulations applies and we would need to put it in our checked luggage? Also, any good jungle experience from placencia? Thanks a lot, Gen

All duty-free needs to be checked Gen. So either by leaving space in your luggage or doing a last min shift of a few things to your carry on. Sometimes Premier Duty-free will box it if they can. JUst have Tropic Air put fragile on luggage. Belize jungle covers more than half the mainland so you will be easy to find a good jungle tour experience from Placencia. Here is barefoot services jungle and nature tours page –

Thanks for the great info. 8 of us are flying into Belize City then on to Placencia and will stock up at the airport and stuff it into our luggage. Do you know if we will have to pay Customs fees on our purchases?
