you'll go through customs at the end of the flight. Your bags will be checked through all the way to BZE, but on your return you'll have to go through US Custome at DFW. Declare your camera and DVD player on your Belize customs enrty forms and you shouldn't have any trouble at DFW because you can prove that you had them as you exited the US. Bring a pen with you so that you won't have to scrounge one up during the flight.
I'll be tramping around Belize at the same time as you, 1-28-06 through 2-4-06. Maybe our paths will cross.

My husband and I are first time international travelers. We will be visiting at the end of January, and I am wondering what to expect going through customs. First of all, when do we go through customs? We are flying out of Chicago and into Dallas/Fort Worth and then out of DFW and into BZE. When is customs? Second...if anyone has flown American you would be most helpful here...if I check a bag does it go all the way through to BZE or do I have to get it in DFW and then re-check it? I have never had to connect before to another flight, all of my previous flights have been straight through! And lastly I am going to be bringing a camera and a portable dvd player, how do I go about getting them into and out of the country? Is there a form I have to fill out or something? I mean how do they know I brought that stuff into the country when I am leaving? Any and all information in regards to this topic would be most welcome. 13 more days!
