Hi all ... we are leaving for Belize next month and will be there for Valentine's Day smile . Coming in from the US, can we bring a bottle of champagne or wine?

Not sure if it can cross over through customs ...

Many thanks (sorry for the dumb question),

The Belize Customs Declaration form you fill out when you enter Belize states:

"As an arriving passenger, you are entitled to the following exemptions:

1. A. Wearing apparel, jewelry, Toilet Requisites and any portable articles in your accompanied baggage or on your person, which you might reasonably be expected to carry with you for your own regular and private use.

2. B. If you are 18 years or older -- and not returning from a visit to a neighboring Border Town or City -- One litre total of wine or spirits and 250 grams of tobacco or 50 cigar or 200 cigarettes."

I took two litres of Absolut AND a small bottle of vermouth. I do love my martinis! I know I was over the limit but I figured the worst thing they could do was take it from me. I had read premium liquors were very expensive but I have since read that they are not THAT much more expensive. In other words, don't torture yourself by carrying a litre of vodka in your carry-on to save a few $$$. I couldn't tell you the exact difference...maybe somebody else can.

I think Lan's the authority and whoever that is above me (I forgot when I hit 'reply') is correct.

However, also note:

3. C. Any outside person (or persons) of known or unknown origin, when bringing alcohol for consumption across the borders of Belize or Nebraska, must bring enough for everyone. wink

Well, Catatonic Motivator, I was traveling with a group of 10 people and yes I did share. The owner of the villa we rented suggested that we all bring a litre of our favorite to stock the bar so it wouldn't have to come out of our grocery fund. That whole situation is another story...but let it suffice to say that I was glad I did because only one other person brought anything. And the ones who didn't were the very ones to complain about the grocery bill although they were very happy to eat/drink what Maria generously served up.

Just for grins, I checked some of the booze prices in the Island Market. Just the ones I was interested in of course. $40BZ for a 750Ml bottle of Stoli or Absolut.

Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt
