Casa and the Covid Pandemic: Casa to remain closed through November 22
Greetings to guests past and future. It has been our pleasure over the past many years to host visitors from all over the world, and we look forward to the renewed opportunity to share the natural and cultural wonders of the neo-tropics in the future.
However, in these challenging times with the difficulties of long distance travel and the uncertainties presented by Covid -19 the staff and owners of Casa have opted to remain closed for the foreseeable future. The earliest that reservations are being currently accepted is the fourth week of November 2020.
Our reasons for this are many and varied but foremost look to the safety and health of our staff and guests. The Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, the Ministry of Health and the Belize Tourism Board have recently released a very thorough and detailed document providing guidelines and protocols to instruct accommodations like Casa to promote the health and safety of staff and guests. Casa is currently reviewing and preparing to implement these protocols and guidelines.
While we anticipate the acquisition of supplies and materials and the related training can be accomplished in the near term, we also think it prudent and responsible to remain in suspension while this new reality continues to unfold. This provides the time required to observe and adopt the most productive and successful measures and to allow staff to develop behaviors and a rhythm that ensures guest comfort and safety with as little interference to the guest experience as possible.

Prevailing breezes from the valley make this location cooler and less humid than the coastal plain.
