Sorry to see this.

Please pardon my ignorance. My wife and I are arriving 7/09. I'm not sure what this post means. Should we convert spendings to Belize dollars before we get to Belize? Will ATM's still be available? Will US dollars still be accepted by merchants or will it be a crime after Monday? How about credit cards?

Confused, bill...

Vegasbill: This will not effect your vacation...you can spend your US currency everywhere in Belize...exchange would not be necessary and ATM's and credit cards should have no effects to this change. Have a great time!!! Bill
Gone fishing!!
