November Update

By Slickrock Adventures on November 22, 2021

Dear Slickrock Friends,

We’re a hop, skip, and jump away from opening, and it would be great to welcome you to our island this winter.

We are running trips with a very minimum of 15 guests, and have more than enough space for you to feel a calming sense of mind that you’re likely in the safest of places to go on holiday (or vacation, my North American friends).

Just close your eyes and envision the sun’s warm glow on your (sun-screened) skin, 80 degrees, the natural breeze, gentle waves hushing you to sleep, surrounded by fellow contented tourists, very centred and welcoming Belizeans, scrumptious hand-made food, squeeze your own oranges for juice in the morning, a freshly brewed coffee from roasted beans, snorkel amongst the Caribbean Sea’s marine life, kayak the only surf break in Belize.

There’s no treasure on our island, Long Caye, but the memories, you’ll treasure these.

I could go on but you have to see it to believe it.

Unplug, recharge, and defrost this winter.

Our island awaits.

Cheers,
Phil Dowsett

For new bookings, we have reduced our pre-Covid price by 18%, and have included airport shuttles, dinner, breakfast, and accommodation on both the Friday night and Saturday night stays at Best Western. It used to exclude the shuttles, dinner, and breakfast on Saturday night.

As part of the recovery from a 95% drop in business since March 2020, the only changes going forward are discontinuing the 10% discount for repeat guests, and child rates due to the extra costs incurred. We will be keeping this price for all of 2021 and 2022.

We will honour the 10% discount on private charters exceeding 20 guests only.

We look forward to welcoming you back, or for the first time.

Whether the island was a fond memory, or on your bucket list, we’re here to help answer any questions you may have.

If there are any questions you may have, please don’t think “what if”. We’re here to help, and Marcy or Jose would be more than happy to go through anything that comes to mind.

The head office is open 9 am – 5 pm (Belize time) between Monday and Friday.

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

Covid-19 Travel Update

With regards to Covid-19, we became a government-approved Gold Standard Hotel (Long Caye Adventure Camp), and Gold Standard Tour Operator (Slickrock Adventures), implementing extra sanitisation and safety measures, which won’t dampen the experience. Prevention and minimising risks, even without Covid-19 on the scene has been our priority. This is for your peace of mind, as well as our Slickrock team.

The Belize government’s requirement at this moment in time is simply a negative Rapid Antigen test 48 hours before arrival, or a negative PCR test 96 hours before arrival, as well as downloading the travel app:

As of 5th August 2021, you will still require a Covid test to enter Belize, even if you have had both vaccinations, and bring proof of this upon entry.

In accordance with CDC to re-enter the States, we have arranged a Rapid Antigen test for US$75 per person. They will come to Best Western as you arrive back from the island and you’ll get results within 30 minutes.

Covid-19 Cancellation Policy

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.

As with previous terms, all cancellations are subject to a minimum US$100 administration fee, if not re-booked for an alternative date.
