Belize’s Tourism Gold Standard Certification Program

Villa Rising Sun is a certified Gold Standard hotel. In addition to this certification, we are one of two facilities in Belize to have also been awarded the prestigious Caribbean Travelers Health Assurance Stamp and WTTC Safe Travels Stamp.  This ensures all our guests have a safe and healthy experience while visiting Belize. Our staff is fully vaccinated.

Masks are required when in public spaces but not while at Villa Rising Sun; however, we will always wear a mask to protect you. While in country facemasks are mandatory in all public spaces except our many restaurants and on aquatic tours. You are advised to practice social distancing, proper hand hygiene and to protect yourself as well as others you may come in contact with.
