Going to Belize? You may get a shock from the prices! Find out about currency, adventure travel, and regulations.

Roads in Belize are not too bad and constantly getting better. Major arteries, like the Northern, Southern and Hummingbird Highways rival the best ones in Latin America and many in the developed world.

Travellers to Central America should have their shots up to date: hepatitis, typhoid, and tetanus are essential. A Rabies shot is recommended for those spending a lot of time outdoors, especially in rural areas, or among animals.
