Can anyone tell me if American dollars are accepted or do you need to exchange them for Belizian dollars. Also, what is the recommendation as far as using Travellers Checks?

I found that US currency is pretty easily usable...some restaurants and hotels actually charged in US dollars rather than belizian dollars. Since the exchange rate is stable, I think it's an easy process. IO always recommend travelers checks when traveling abroad and they are widely accepted in AC.

I always say, "When in Rome. . ." I used both BZ and U.S. money.

No problem either way. You give US$ and get change in BZE$ or US, depending on what's in the till or pocket. You'll get charged the credit card percentage in many cases, so the exchange rate may look like 2.07 to 1 on a restaurant check.

I would bring $100 travelers checks for the bulk of your money, they are easy to cash at the grocery and banks in San Pedro. I usually bring a few hundred cash in 1's, 5's, 10's and 20's. Have fun!
