We are headed to Belize after Christmas and everything is booked, just need to think ahead about how a couple things.
We will be there about a week, Cayo/Placecenia mostly. Our jungle hotel has suggested that she would prefer to be paid the balance in US$. We will take that, but how much more should we take if many prefer US$? I understand ATM's only give Belize $. Thoughts on how to handle the currency issue?
We are traveling with kids and, although we have never bought trip insurance, we are thinking that it may be worthwhile to some type of emergency insurance to air lift us out if needed. We did not get such insurance in Peru last year, as they had a good road system, so it was not a great concern getting to a hospital quickly, when needed. But I keep hearing about long long bumpy car rides, so was thinking it would be reassuring, and likely not that expensive, just to get some coverage for medical. I remember I used to be a DAN member and it covered emergency medical. We are not so worried about trip cancellation, etc. Any thoughts, experiences? Of course we know the chances of anything happening is VERY slim, but I would sleep better if I knew we had that coverage.
