    Currency in Belize – Belize dollar BZD

    A practical foreign exchange and currency guide on sending money and travel to Belize



    Travelling to Belize

    The Belize Dollar (BZD) has been pegged to the US dollar for several decades now. The official rate is 2BZD = 1USD. US dollars are widely accepted throughout the country but don’t take large bills as it could be hard to get change back in USD. If you do have BZD and are travelling to bordering countries, its worth noting that BZD is often accepted in the towns immediately across the borders at Melchor de Mencos in Guatemala and Chetumal in Mexico. Be sure to exchange any excess BZDs prior to leaving the country as it will be difficult to change otherwise.
