January 2021 Update

By Slickrock Adventures on May 9, 2021
Dear Slickrock Friends,

We have opened up 12th February 2021 as a week for general bookings, rather than the private charters for all other weeks until further notice.

We’d love to welcome you to our special island, away from any stresses in your life with your loved one.

Just close your eyes and picture the sun illuminating the blue skies and azure water during the day. Just the moon and stars at night, with the waves, gently humming in the background as you calmly fall asleep.

We are welcoming scuba diving in-house, and will officially welcome our new team members in the following months.

Another date or two will possibly be opened up for general bookings in March, but for now, 12th February 2021 is the only date we are definitely open this year, for now.

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.

The employees are now business partners in Slickrock and the sister companies, which was always the plan. I know it is an over-used cliché, but “having skin in the game” does change it from a job to a real passion. If you own something, you put more of your heart and soul into making it a success.

We have relocated the business from the US to Belize, which will help us contribute more to the Belizean economy, but also benefit the Slickrock family even more so.

I have often come across as a bit away with the fairies with the guests and staff, but it has been to allow the team to take over the day-to-day management of the business and feel proud that they are looked up to, not down upon. My very unorthodox leadership in my eyes is pushing the car from the back, whilst the team gets to steer.

Who’s In Charge?

I may be a rookie
But I think you mistook me

For being reserved
If anyone deserved

To be recognised for credibility
It certainly isn’t me

The team, I’ve always seen
As the light from the beam

Shining beyond an owner
Whether that’s corporate, or loner

There’s no “I” in “Team”
That’s not extreme

That’s what I’ve always thought
Playing basketball, what I was taught

I’ve never tried, to swing it around
I’d rather stay underground

When it comes to being, the showy one
It’s not so much introverted, I’m just humbler than some

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).

Covid-19 Cancellation Policy Amendment

If you are unable to travel due to restrictions placed on your home country or Belize by the government(s) or airlines, or if the resort is unable to open due to government restrictions, any paid bookings are eligible for rebooking for future dates of up to a year from your original check-in date. Guests will receive full credit for the amount paid to apply to the future rebooking dates, subject to availability.

On behalf of the Slickrock family, we look forward to welcoming you to the island this season.
