A question that's not covered in our Belize travel books is how much can we bring in. Two Bottles of our favorite Vino since we're celebrating our 30th. Then we'd like to bring some Tequilla & Controy from Mexico. Is that allowed? I can't find it anywhere. laugh

You can buy all of those beverages here. Why not support the local economy.

The Wine de Vine store in town have a huge selection of wines from all over the world - and well priced.

You can buy the Mexican liquor at most large grocery stores here.

I can't remember how much booze you can import duty free, but it is the same as the US. Maybe 2 quarts per family???

Our wines is 1975 (30) years for our 30th. It's in our wine cooler. Remember it's our 30th. Yes, I'll support the local trade with the other - no biggie. I doubt they would have our favorite Cab's.If I manage to pass the certification, we can celebrate. I think I'm too old for this - there is a lot to learn - will my brain work overtime??

I bring wine in every time, mostly to share with friends who live on the island. I generally pack no more than 6 bottles (big bubble wrap, dish towels, oversize ziploc bag) and have never had a problem.

Wine De Vine does have a great selection but know that you'll pay quite a bit more for them due to taxes and the cost of importing. Last I looked, there weren't any California wines and I'm a big Zin drinker frown

Good luck and pack carefully!

Wine is expensive in Belize.

A $15 box of Almaden in CT was $50 last February. Plan accordingly.

Beer is great!

If you're a serious wine drinker, bring your own. Prices are almost double what you'll pay in the states and selection of decent wine is limited. That said, Belikin is part of the Belize experience and the rum punch is excellent!

They keep telling me on those Customs forms and I keep forgetting.

Coincidence? I think not...
