Sustainable Travel


Royal Belize is committed to preserving the beautiful, yet fragile, natural environment that is the main attraction in Belize. We focus on eliminating any potential negative environmental impact associated with our operations and encourage our guests to do the same. 

How we stay sustainable

  • Eliminating all plastic water bottles, providing complimentary aluminum water bottles to each guest

  • Replacing plastic straws and cups with bamboo straws and glass cups

  • Packing tour lunches in a cooler with reusable containers instead of styrofoam

  • Recycling all glass bottles

  • Cleaning with only non-toxic products

  • Buying only energy efficient appliances, LED light bulbs, and double panned windows

  • Collecting rain water and putting it through a desalination process right on the island

  • Making just one boat run per day maximum and using low emission engines

  • Using solar and wind power

  • Buying only locally sourced ingredients

How You Can Help Sustainability Efforts

  • Use and refill your complimentary water bottle

  • Use reef safe sunscreen

  • Reuse your towels to reduce water and chemical waste

  • Turn off lights and air conditioners when you leave your room

  • Minimize water use (turn off taps when shaving or brushing teeth)

  • Dispose of trash responsibly and recycle where possible

  • When diving and snorkeling, never touch plant/animal life and minimize fin movement (which stirs up sand that can choke the reef)

  • Never chase an animal (on land or under water)

  • Join environmental groups and support environmental causes

  • Donate to the local community (match our $100 BZD per room, per night donation)
