What is best way to bring money. Is there a couple banks on AC to cash the travellers cheques at or is is better just to bring cash, or both. Is the local currency is all in Belize dollars or do they except both?

Prices in restaurants/shops are in Belize dollars I assume?

bring some of both - most hotels & businesses will cash tvlr checks - ATM works at the bank - charges dependant on your specific account

local currency is Belize, US currency accepted everywhere

prices are in either/or, sometimes both - if in doubt ask!

we just brought cash (US$$) and spent it. Easy math- double your US for the Belize equiv. or halve the Belize for the US equiv. By the end of our trip we were all paying in a mixture of the two. It was kinda funny.
