Is everything closed on Easter/Easter weekend?

I'm planning an itinerary for our trip to Belize, which is quickly approaching. I currently have us in the tentatively in the San Ignacio area March 29-April 2. Are shops, restaurants, tours closed Easter weekend, or will we still be able to do things?

I'd bet that just about everything will be open. On Sundays, most places are closed anyways, but tours still go.

Bars are closed on Good Friday. This is about the busiest week of travel in Central America; everyone has a long holiday and everything will be open and tours operating in tourist areas

I bet shops, and restaurants will be closed on Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. The tour companies will be operating, and resort services will be available.

Good Friday is the day when almost everything will be closed -- I think it's a law? A few years ago, I needed to buy something, and did it through a small side window of a grocery store.

Saturday will be as usual, except banks, libraries and some other businesses will be closed.

On Sunday & Monday, some grocery stores & restaurants will be open.

Tour companies will probably have tours if already arranged, but their offices might be closed on Friday, Sunday & Monday.
