Medical Insurance Options for Living in Belize

 

Expats Living in Belize

 

ExpatBelize.com gets many request each day from current EXPATs and future EXPATS wanting to know about Medical Insurance options for Belize.

In General, if you opt for the no insurance avenue while living in Belize:

There are local medical options, which are out of pocket, and inexpensive in Belize. Office visits are very low in cost, you can even have your X-rays if required done and take the films with you the same day back to your local physician who ordered them, or have your lab work done in town for a fraction of what the same test  would cost in the USA.

There are also the free hospitals here which EXPATS in Belize can also use, and most things are covered in Belize. If your particular medical issue is not covered, the fees are very nominal compared to medical expenses in other countries such as the USA.

Living in Belize - ATM Closed - No More Cameras Allowed E-mail

ATM Cave Entrance
The ATM Cave (Actun Tunichil Muknal) is one of the most spectacular sites in all of Central America. National Geographic named ATM #1 on their Top 10 list of Sacred Places to visit in a lifetime! So if you get an opportunity, do not miss this wonder of the world. 

 

This cave is very delicate and Belize takes pride in protecting the history and the artifacts that make up that history. Channel 7 News recently interviewed Dr. Awe about an accident that took place on a recent tour. This has sparked Dr. Awe to implement stricter protections of the cave.

Dr. Jaime Awe - Director, Institute of Archaeology

"Recently, we had a small accident at the Actun Tunichil Muknal Archaeological Park. We believe that a guest - a tourist - who was in there, was taking a photograph with a camera. The camera slipped and fell out of their hands, and it landed and damaged one of the skulls, and it broke a section of the upper part of the skull. I sent in a team from the Institute of Archaeology, and we went in. We looked at the skull, and we think that we can make repairs to it. We have been, for some time, thinking about disallowing the use of cameras in the cave, unless under special permission. And when this incident happened a couple weeks ago, it really spurred that decision and urged us to implement it as of now. Hence, as of this past week, and we will no longer allow guests and visitors to go in with cameras. I am compiling that we will put on a DVD, and these will be available for sale to guests going to the site. And in many ways, this will help us - and again, to enforce this law - at the same time, it might be another source of revenue for the Institute of Archaeology. The cave is awesome; it contains the remains of people who were sacrificed in there. It contains artifacts that were left in there as offerings to the gods, and the cave is beautiful in terms of its formation. To me, it is not just the cultural remains in the cave that make it important; it's also the cave formations in different rooms in some of the chambers in the cavern. So it's certainly one of Belize's premier caves. I think that this incident has made us all acutely aware of the need to be conservation-minded, of the need to be careful, of the need to tell people that they've got watch where they step. We can put in lights in the cave, and we could set barriers up, but then, it would total destroy the beautiful experience that one has. This incident has made all the tour guides a lot more aware that they are the vanguards. They have to be responsible for the tourists that go in there that they have to manage these groups with a lot more care."

It has been speculated by some that there may be a time when the cave will not be available to visitors for touring at all. However you can still tour the cave just not take your camera in anymore. The alternative they are going to possibly offer is a great idea. Tourist will get a professionally produced keepsake and be able to fully be present when touring the cave because now they will not have to think about the next picture they should take for their memorabilia. Additionally, this will be a great way to finance in part the restoration and upkeep of the amazing archeological sites of Belize. Dr. Awe and his team work very hard and are very passionate about Belize and preserving its great beauty while providing a great education of Belize history.

I was fortunate a few years back to have a wonderful tour guide and participate in this amazing adventure. I would recommend it to all. It is truly a "bucket list" activity.

King James Classic

 

15 Belizean Basketball players  will get their chance to play at one of the top youth tournaments in the USA . The tournament named for the Famous Lebron James and located in his home town of Akron, Ohio USA will be held on April 27 - April 29 2012. The King James Classic Tournament will kick off with Belize being one team in the field of many aspiring players.  

The tournament is for ages 19 and under and will host some of the nation's top high school basketball players.  This is not only a great opportunity for Belize as a nation, it is a wonderful opportunity for the Belizean players to be recognized nationally by some of the top college coaches throughout the USA that will be scouting for players at the tournament.  This will no doubt be the who's who of youth basketball and all eyes will be focused that weekend on the King James Classic. 

Congratulations to all the basketball players who will attend this tournament and represent the country of Belize. ExpatBelize wishes you all the best and safe travels. Have fun and enjoy!
