Show your love the right way as you explore Belize’s colorful land and sea.

Tread lightlyWhile exploring our jungles, savannahs, and offshore cayes, “take nothing but photos and memories.” Stay on designated paths, leave no litter, and don’t alter the landscape.   

 

Respect the wildlife:  Enjoy creatures from a distance—do not disturb, feed, or keep Belizean wildlife, it’s illegal and dangerousAvoid purchasing items or jewelry made from exotic animal products 

 

Help preserve history: At archeological sites, do not enter roped-off areas or violate signs prohibiting access. If you encounter pottery shards and artifactsplease notify your guide and note that Belizean law prohibits you from taking any finds home.  

 

Mind the coral: Remain mindful of your surroundings when snorkeling and diving to avoid accidentally stepping on or kicking the coral, and wear coral-safe sunscreen. 

 

Fish and consume responsibly: Sport fishing is regulatedanglers must carry a fishing license issued by the Coastal Zone Management Authority and InstituteBelize is also one of few Caribbean countries with a Catch and Release law for tarpon, permit, and bonefish to ensure healthy populations. Do not consume lobster and conch out of season.
