But what about the smaller properties, including bed and breakfasts that cannot afford the investment? Tejada says that the association is there to assist and has been advising its members on how to make the necessary changes economically.

 

Ted Tejada, President, Belize Hotel Association

“When we look at the situation, what is happening and why this virus has propagated throughout the country of Belize, because we keep looking at hotels; that hotels have to do the investment. We have to look at the bus stations have to do the investment; we have to look at the little shops, the mom and pop’s, the tacos stations. Every business must invest in the protocols, in the sanitization and you don’t have to buy the Mercedes Benz. There are chemicals and there are dispensers that you can implement in your place that is not the high end versus of what every hotel has.  Our hotel association is helping them one step at a time. How do you eat the elephant? Piece by piece; you take it one step at a time. There are nine steps that you need to accomplish to get your certification and that is where we the hotel association comes in to help them.”
