Belize fees list...
 
There has been a bit of chatting about the fees in Belize lately (especially here in the Rio Dulce, Guatemala). Here is a list of the fees in various areas:

Sapodilla Cayes………..$20 Blz per day or $50 Blz per week
Port Honduras………….$10 Blz per day or $30 Blz per week
Gladden Spit…………...$20 Blz per day or $50 Blz per week
($50 Blz per day at the whale shark zone)
Laughing Bird…………$20 Blz per day
Glovers Reef…………..$10 Blz per day or $30 Blz per week
Caye Caulker………….$10 Blz per day or $30 Blz per week
Hol Chan………………$20 Blz per day
Bacalar Chico………….$10 Blz per day or $30 Blz per week
Blue Hole……………...$60 Blz per day

The above are the government approved entrance fees. The persons collecting the fees are reserve rangers. You can ask for an identification but the rangers are now using a fisheries uniform with the government of Belize logo on the shirt pocket. Visitors are urged to obtain a ticket. The ticket is a receipt. However, when any company buys tickets in bulks they get another official receipt for accounting purposes of the purchasing organization.
The fees collected will be used directly for the management of the protected areas.

Also note that these fees are Per Person, not per vessel.
This is for those planning on going there and not getting blind-sided by unexpected (or planned for) costs.
Belize is beautiful and has great snorkeling and diving. It shouldn''t be passed up, but have this knowledge when choosing which are you wish to visit.

Fair winds,
Christal
