George Price – January 2021

By Slickrock Adventures on May 9, 2021

Dear Slickrock Friends,

We have celebrated George Price here in Belize today. He was the first prime minister when independence was gained from the United Kingdom in 1981. Today was his birthday and has just been declared a new bank holiday.

He became a member of the legislative council (1964), mayor of Belize City (1958-62), first minister (1961), and then premier under the new system of internal self-rule (1964). He headed the team that negotiated full independence from London, and in September 1981 became the first prime minister – and foreign minister – of an independent nation. A year later he was made a member of the British privy council.

15th January 1919 – 19th September 2011

I try to always be upfront and honest when it comes to business. We received a notification from the government this week that The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) will require a negative Covid test for anyone re-entering the US as of 26th January 2021. Rest assured, we are here to help and Belize already has locations countrywide lined up to handle this in a smooth and timely manner. There will be several available options by the time our next trip starts on 12th February 2021.

We have spaces available for 12th February 2021 as a week for general bookings, rather than the private charters for all other weeks until further notice. We are also opening up 19th March 2021 for general bookings.

If you would like to un-plug and re-charge for Valentine’s, away from work emails and phone calls, we have just the spot.

The Belize government relaxed the Covid rules recently, which used to be a negative PCR test 72 hours before your arrival. It is now a negative PCR test four days before your arrival, or a negative Rapid test two days prior to your arrival.

Thanks for your support in the past, present, or future.

If you would like to book Valentine’s trip under the stars, starting 12th February 2021, please feel free to contact Jose anytime between 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday Belize time (Central Time).
