What Should I Wear or Bring to a National Park in Belize?

Make sure to bring insect repellent. You’ll reapply it every once in a while keep away mosquitoes, ticks, and sand flies. It might be hot, but keep in mind that the more skin you cover up, the less insects will have to bite.

The sun shines brightly in the Caribbean – be sure to bring sunscreen and sunglasses. Many of the national parks will have opportunities for swimming, either at a beach, a lagoon, or a waterfall, so bring a swimsuit.

You should also have comfortable hiking shoes, a camera, and plenty of water. Remember, even if there are drinking fountains, it is not always safe to drink the water in Belize. Make sure you have enough bottled water to stay hydrated throughout your entire hike.
