Parks and Protected Areas
Departing the country through land borders requires payment of the land border exit fee of US$18.75 per person. A portion of the departure tax goes toward the protection and preservation of the environment. Due to the country’s effort to effectively manage their abundant protected areas, visitors are asked to pay a conservation exit fee at any of the exit or entry points. The proceeds from this fee goes to the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT), which is then distributed and used to sustain the protected areas in Belize.
