Okay--I know I can't bring wine. Does customs check baggage at the International Airport? It also says we can't bring herbs. Does that include all spices?

Customs does (at times) check bags. We have been through customs at Belize International 12+ times and the only times they did not check our bags was when I did "not" claim anything. It seems that evety time we have something to claim they want to check the bags; although, they have never been really inthusiastic about it. On the other hand I would sure hate like hell to not claim something and then get hoofed from the country for trying to smuggle! Although ... I have seen people pulled from the line leaving the baggage area to have thier luggage checked.

Yep you can bring wine. 1 litre. I don't know why you would want to. Just contact Simon at http://www.lagniappe-belize.com/order.htm an he will look after everything. NO I do not work for him; I use his services and find them to be all that I need and more.

Have a wonderful trip!!!!!

If you are flying in you can bring 2 bottles of wine in each. If you are crossing the boarder by land you have to pay 60% duty on wine, no freebies, rules are different for citizens, however I have been bringing in wine from Guat, no problem.no duty.or very little, but when you can buy a great Chilean Cab for $6.00 a bottle and the same bottle cost $20 on the Cayes its worth a day trip.

Customs won't let you bring in Herb?!
They must have heard about our night in Cancun.
They won't let him back in there either.

If you are planning on smoking the herb or making brownies, you probably don't want to declare it either.
