In addition, we give you all the details on staying at this beachfront hotel.
What it means to be Gold Standard Certified
The Belize Tourism Board created The Gold Standard Program to enhance hotels for the safety of travelers. This extensive 9-point program elevates the cleaning and workplace policies. Additionally, these hotels must prove they have adapted to new behaviors and procedures while ensuring minimal impact on the guest experience. Along with hotels, tour operators and hotel restaurants can also be certified under the Belize Tourism Board’s Gold Standard Recognition Program. Recently, Belize expanded its Tourism Safe Corridor to extend a certification to gift shops, car rentals, stand-alone restaurants and more.
