Big Belize Travel Deal
Belize is the only country that I am aware of that allows you the option to purchase your duty-free items upon arrival. 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.
|Item||Premier Duty Free - $USD||Ambergris Caye $USD|
|Gray Goose Vodka||$35.00||$70.50|
|Jose Cuervo Gold||$18.00||$35.00|
|Red Wine (Santa Alicia)||$10.00||$18.00|
|White Wine (Santa Alicia)||$10.00||$18.00|
|Carton of Cigarettes (Marlboro)||$21.00||$33.00|
*Discount does not apply to sales items.
Incoming limits on Alcohol and Tobacco: 6 bottles of liquor or wine, 3 cartons of cigarettes, 6 boxes of Cigars, 6 bottles of perfume.
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 tropicair.com and at no extra cost, you will be making a donation to the Blue Water Grill Community effort on Ambergris Caye towards a hematology analyzer and the Dangriga Cancer Center which serves countrywide Belize.

Flight Code Donation
As of March 1st, BWG community has been raising money to purchase a hematology analyzer for the Polyclinic. The cost of the machine is $45K and the analyzer will enable the clinic to give blood test results in hours, rather than the 2-3 days it currently takes. April customers of Blue Water Grill, The Phoenix, and Wine de Vine have contributed (including matched customer donations from all 3 businesses) $7,669.85 with $809.00 of that coming from flight code users. Current total funds raised for medical equipment are $15,339.70. At approximately $30K short of the goal, this fundraising effort will continue through May and June. Don’t forget if you are not in the country but are in support helping improve Ambergris Caye Health Care you can make a donation anytime on the Blue Water Grill website.
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.
