Tourism Gold Standard Certification

The Tourism Gold Standard Certification program is an initiative by the Belize Tourism Board. It was established as a response to Covid-19.

It's main purpose is to strengthen the tourism industry while keeping both visitors and residents safe.


This 9-point program includes Covid-19 guidelines and standard operating protocols (SOPs) for the Belize tourism industry.


The program was recently expanded from accommodations and tour operators, to now also include stand-alone restaurants, gift shops, tourism sites, and approved transport, deeming them safe for visitors who choose Belize as their vacation destination.

A Gold Standard entity is one that has thoroughly followed the new safety procedures and has the guests’ safety as their utmost priority.


"I want to express my sincere appreciation to Charles Leslie for helping me secure Gold Standard  status for my accommodations.
Without his help and guiding me through a very overwhelming process I would have never been able to accomplish it.
I highly  recommend him for whatever your needs might be in the IT field
Much gratitude to him for a job well done."
