Hamanasi strongly encourages all guests to purchase medical, accident, luggage, emergency trip cancellation & dive insurance. Insurance is highly recommended for all travel dates, regardless of the time of year. For dive insurance, please check DAN (Divers Alert Network).

Through the years we have learned that the “cancel for any reason” rider on a travel insurance policy has been beneficial to our guests.  Please research and decide which coverage is the right coverage for you.  Allianz and IMG are two widely used options that our guests have used in the past.  Hamanasi is not affiliated with any travel insurance company.

Guests are responsible for determining and obtaining proper entry documentation. All foreign nationals require a passport to enter Belize. Visitors from some countries may require a visa. No refunds will be granted for denied entry caused by failure to carry proper proof of citizenship or the appropriate visa.

Up to two children under 12 may stay free of charge, per room, when staying in the room with a paying adult, using existing bedding. Tours, meals, drinks, etc., are extra. Children must pay for any local flights; land transfers and meals purchased a la carte. Hamanasi can provide personalized tours for families at an a la carte price. Children may also purchase a Reef and Rainforest package, though please note that most organized tours are not appropriate for children under the age of seven. Guests must notify the hotel at the time of booking if an infant will be staying with them and if a crib is needed. Room types and locations may be limited.

Hamanasi has guests with children that have a great time during their stay, however the parents have to plan on spending a lot of time with their children as we do not have a special children’s program. The following is our policy: Parents should maintain responsibility for and supervision of their children at all times when staying at Hamanasi. Hamanasi does not claim that it is able to ensure children’s safety while on property or during any of Hamanasi’s organized tours and maintains that this is the responsibility of the parent. Parents should be aware that Hamanasi employees are not trained in the specific care of children. Hamanasi’s swimming pool does not have a lifeguard on duty.
