From a recent visitor to the island:
As for the credit card hit, I am probably SOL. They quoted me 1% hit before the trip and the bill came thru with a 3.9% hit. 1% for Visa, 2% for Citibank and .9% who knows.
These charges were made by the credit card company and banks not the Belize establishments that took the card.
And here is a link with information towards a lawsuit.....
