Hands down the best customer service! We have used them for rentals and tours several times over the past 5 years. Ian and his guide crew are so knowledgeable and make every tour an amazing memory. Megs has helped us book some pretty amazing accommodations and is always there to solve any problem. You won't be disappointed with Barefoot Services!

Very bad service! Avoid Megs as they have no customer service experience! **Reply is untrue. I was told that they had no other carts available therefore I had no choice. Nice to see how they create their own narrative after a poor product is delivered. Unfortunate.

What an amazing experience we had with this company. Everyone who works there is top notch! Our first driver Jimmy is so professional, friendly and a wealth of information. Awesome tour guide too, the best! Dealing with Meg in the office and Ian as a driver was also a professional and courteous experience. They all enhanced our trip to Belize. I highly recommend this service from shuttle to tours. Keep up the great work and hope to see you on my next trip.

I'm not a big reviewer, but sometimes the experience and service are too good to go unmentioned. We stayed in Placencia last week and used Barefoot to rent a golf cart and for two excursions (water fall swim and river tubing). Megs was very helpful with the reservations by both email and phone, as we wanted to take excursions at different times than those offered by our hotel. It's a simple thing, but the golf cart was delivered at the appointed time by Ian. We saw Ian again for the water fall swim excursion. He made the 40 minute drive to the waterfall comfortable, enjoyable and educational. We learned so much about Belize's history and culture. Then, at the waterfall, he guided us through the pools and falls and made an amazing fruit buffet. We were happy to see that it was again Ian guiding us to the river tubing excursion. We learned more about Belize's conservation and bio-diversity on the drive. Ian is the consummate tour guide. Our entire experience with Barefoot Services was top-flight. Ian began to tell us more about other services they provide (for people interested in owning property or discovering more of Belize) and I have every reason to believe that Barefoot would be a great choice for all things Belize.

I cannot express how much we appreciated Ian as our guide. The man has a wealth of knowledge that beyond impressed me. We will never forget the day me and my spouse spent with him. Horse back riding. Lunch. Chocolate shop stop and then zip lining. That man inspired me to explore and do more and LEARN more. :)

We had a great excursion with Jimmie. He arrived 15 minutes early and made us feel very comfortable. We visited the Jaguar Nature Preserve and hiked to one of the falls. We ate a delicious lunch that he prepared for us. The weather didn’t cooperate or we could have had a longer day. He dropped us off at our door. He’s a great guide!

Barefoot was amazing! We went to Belize during the wet season so there were many places that were flooded but they reached out to us with wonderful options. Our guide to the ruins/ cave exploration and to the spice farm/ waterfall was Jimmy and we cannot say enough good things. He not only made sure we were safe and well fed but made sure we had the once in a life time experience. When we come back to Belize again we will be reaching out to Barefoot Services and asking for Jimmy!!

Had a great ride to the Belize City airport. Ian engaged myself and my partner Winston with information about areas in Belize we should visit during our trip. The coastal road was smooth sailing. Laughter and sites along the way. Thank you for an extremely comfortable transportation experience!

The staff here were super helpful and were able to hook us up with a Golf Cart for Lobster fest weekend at a very fair price.

Belize Travel FAQs

Do I Need a Visa to Visit Belize?

No, not if you’re a citizen of the United States, Canada, the European Union, CARICOM nations, and several other countries. You will, however, need a valid passport with at least six months left before it expires.

Is Tipping Customary in Belize?

Tipping is always appreciated for concierge services and at restaurants. Tipping 10% is customary for good service while 15-20% is normal for exceptional service.

What Is Internet Access Like in Belize?

All of the finer hotels, resorts, and lodges will offer high-speed, wireless internet. Smaller, boutique hotels and offshore locations may only offer Wi-Fi in common areas. While internet access is less prevalent in rural areas, most visitors come to Belize to get away from the hectic demands of modern life and to enjoy the unspoiled, natural landscape and wildlife.

Can I Use My Phone in Belize?

If you have an unlocked smartphone that uses SIM cards, you can purchase a pre-paid SIM card from one of the two Belizean carriers: Digicell and Smart. Most visitors, however, prefer to rely on wireless internet hotspots or just leaving their phone in their suitcase to focus on relaxing and enjoying their vacation.

Do I Need Power Adaptors?

Belize uses the same voltage and plugs as the United States and Canada, so you will not need a power adaptor unless you’re coming from Asia or Europe.

What Are the Bathrooms Like in Belize?

Generally, the bathrooms in Belize use the same western-style flushing toilets as you’d find anywhere in North America. However, in some rural areas, outhouse style bathrooms are all that is available.

Can I Drink the Water in Belize?

Although tap water in Belize is safe for showering, drinking it may disturb foreign visitors. All visitors are recommended to solely drink bottled water which is widely available.

Are Credit Cards Accepted in Belize?

All finer establishments will accept credit cards, particularly Visa and MasterCard with less coverage for Discover. Cash, however, is universally accepted, and American dollars are gladly accepted everywhere in the country. The American dollar is permanently pegged to the Belize dollar at 2:1, making it easy to understand prices.

The larger cities will have ATMs, but these may charge withdrawal fees. To find out if your card will work in Belize, it is recommended that you check with your home bank.

Should I Purchase Travel Insurance?

Travel insurance is always recommended in case something unforeseen occurs.
