Belize Land Based Casinos


The Central American country of Belize is a beautiful tropical paradise. Gambling is legal, but it is recommended it only be done within one of the few legally-run casinos. These casinos are owned by international hotel companies, and luxury accommodations are found onsite in the two largest locations. This makes them safe and convenient for the many tourists who visit the area each year.

The Princess Hotel and Casino

The Princess Casino is located in the capital of Belize, known as Belize City. This is the largest casino in the country. It was recently renamed the Ramada Belize City Princess Casino, but it is common to see it referred to by both names. The Princess Casino has used Las Vegas as its inspiration for its decor and entertainment. It is open 365 days a year from noon until 4 AM. They offer a variety of popular table games and have over 300 electronic gaming options. There is a bar, lounge and restaurant with live entertainment, including Russian showgirls, every day. A free buffet is offered daily and opens at midnight. The hotel itself is highly regarded and has well-appointed guestrooms with amazing ocean views.

The Princess Entertainment Center and Princess Freezone

These two gaming locations are owned and operated by the same company which runs the Princess Hotel and Casino. The Princess Entertainment Center is located in San Ignacio, and Freezone can be found at the Belize/Mexico Border in Santa Elena. Both offer multiple electronic gaming machines and some table games. Casino packages, for use at all three locations, can be purchased to make the trip more affordable. The Russian dancers from the Princess Casino in Belize City perform at the San Ignacio Entertainment Center on Wednesday evenings.

Captain Morgan’s Retreat

This luxurious resort is located on the Ambergris Caye. There are table games, over 40 slot machines, and complimentary drinks while you play. A full bar is on site and food is available throughout the Captain’s Casino. Texas Hold ’em tournaments are held every weekend and the slot machines and video poker machines offer payouts as high as $2,000.

There are a number of casinos which randomly open and close along the Belize/Mexico border, but many are not fully licensed and caution should be used when visiting these locations. Most small towns in the country also have local gaming rooms, but again, visitors should be careful when entering these locations. Many are not legally operated and the games are often rigged.
