Can I Bargain In Belize?

Belizeans don’t haggle, especially not in restaurants or hotels. It’s sometimes possible to bargain in outdoor markets, but you can’t be sure how the vendor will react. Bargaining isn’t part of the commercial culture in Belize, and attempting to negotiate a price could be seen as rude.

Many visitors don’t bother, since so many Belizeans live below the poverty line, and rely heavily on tourism for their livelihoods.
