That's a Mexican Parrot Snake (Leptophis mexicanus) which I don't believe has any venom. The Mexican Vine Snake (Oxybelis aeneus) and the Green Vine Snake (Oxybelis fulgidus) both have mild venom.

Very cool shots.

There's a good reference for Belize Snakes at http://rarimages.com/Belize/BelizeSnakes.htm
