I've heard that the drinking age in Belize (Ambergris Caye to be exact) is not usually enforced. Can someone give me some details on this? Thanks. smile

How old are you? No, its not really strict there - I'm not trying to encourage anything but the very first time I went I was 14 and I never had someone ask me for ID. So - note to parents just keep your eyes peeled! smile

I own an Internet bar and we will not serve anyone that we know to be under 18-a lot of the back street bars are not as officous,and if you look 18/20 you will get served everywhere without being asked for id.

18 yrs old or your chin can reach the bar, whichever comes first.

Officially, the drinking age is 18. Although I have to agree that it's not strictly enforced. We went a couple of years ago with two teen boys, and the one who was 16 at the time, was spotted by his dear old mother (me) with a Belikin in his hand at a local eatery..... eek eek I had a seat, and patiently waited for him to notice me..... laugh
Needless to say, a mop was quickly needed under his table..... laugh

I'm hoping that it was that a not a wasted Belikin. I guess it could have been both.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
