U.S. dollars are accepted everywhere in Belize, but if you need to exchange another currency, you can do so at one of the five banks in Belize City: Alliance Bank (at the time of this writing, Alliance Bank was running a contest to pick a new name), Atlantic Bank, Belize Bank, First Caribbean International Bank, and ScotiaBank. Most banks in Belize City have ATMs, and, except for ATMs of Alliance Bank, all now accept cards issued outside Belize. If your ATM card has a Visa or MasterCard symbol, it will work in at least some Belize ATMs, and you can generally withdraw up to BZ$500 (US$250) a day. You get your cash in Belize dollars only.
