I have been successfully using my ATM cards issued by two separate UK banks in the machines in Belize for the past two years. I just use the same pin number as at home and - hey presto - the dosh comes out in Belize dollars and I get charged on my account at home.

Jane forget the ATM's. You can use your credit card at most places. At JE you can charge everything on your credit card.
Maybe some small restaurant for lunch, you would need to pay cash. When you pay with US$ your change will be in BZ$.

There will be a small transfer fee on your credit card, for every charge. For converting the BZ$ TO US$.

Should you go directly to a bank and exchange dollars to Belize money? I know just about every business takes U.S. dollars but is it easier to just convert and use Belize currency?

We found using US$, was easier to keep track of our spending. Of course, then using the BZ$ that we got in change, on our next purchase. But if you feel more comfortable
then convert your money at the bank. Might be fun since you will seem to have twice as much money. LOL

Chloe: That's what I was thinking! When I do the books on our business, I some times tell the loved one,"Well, we have $$$$$$$ in the bank." his eyes light up but then he laughs and tells me to stop converting! Can't fool him! Have a Great Day!

To my knowledge, only the two international banks (UK's Barclay's Bank and Canada's ScotiaBank) have ATMs that accept non-Belize issued ATMs.

Belize Bank and Atlantic Bank have ATMs, but I believe they still do not work with non-Belize cards.

Only Belize Bank and Atlantic Bank have branches in San Pedro.
