I will be travelling from the States to San Pedro in May. Does anyone know if Cigars and bottles of wine can legally be brought into Belize?

Here's what I know... Not that that means much

"The following goods may be taken into Belize without incurring customs duty:
200 cigarettes or 50 cigars or 250g of tobacco; 568ml of alcoholic beverages; 1 bottle of perfume for personal use." This is from Continental Airlines website.

The restriction on alcohol seems tight, no pun...

Thanks kc. I guess i won't be bringing any wine since a bottle of wine is 750ml. Guess i have to settle for beer.

Basically the rules say you can bring in one bottle of booze or wine per adult. A fifth or liter -- the customs folks aren't going to check the exact ml size! And a carton of cigarettes or 50 cigars. As a practical matter, you can probably get by with a couple of bottles if you're a tourist and it's for personal use.

Hi, as far as I know, you can take two litres of booze and 200 cigs back into usa...we have cuban cigars here!!! Take the little paper ring off though before transporting back. Rendezvous Restaurant & Winery has some mighty fine wine, and free wine-tasting every afternoon till 4. laugh
Can't find my plane...
