3. When touring the interior, especially the rainforests and caves, do not wonder off from your tour group. It is easy to get disoriented and lost. Rely on your tour guide to show you the cool things in the forest and how to handle local flora such as medicinal plants.

Bad things can happen to anyone anywhere in the wee hours of the morning. Belize has a high crime rate and tourists stand out especially if you are totally wasted! Go out and return with a group. Be careful of getting picked up by locals you do not know. If you are not Caucasian do not think you can pass for a local for long. The minute you open your mouth the locals will know you are “from foreign”.
