Affectionately known as Spoodles, Mr. Lascelle Tillett has been promoting tourism and ecotourism in and around Belize for more than 40 years. His vast knowledge of Belize’s many eco-tourism destinations and attractions has earned him great respect from many local and international businesses, clients, friends and family alike.

Lascelle started his business as a taxi driver. Eventually, Lascelle, his wife Sarita, and family members started S&L Travel and Tours Company, which is now a well-known, Belizean, family-owned and operated tour company. Lascelle realized that Belize could be promoted through custom-designed special interest and adventure vacations for both Belizean and international tourists. S & L Travel continues to provide personalized tours for all their clients.

Since his youth and even to date, Mr. Tillett has visited places in Belize many of us have not yet heard of or ventured to visit! Ask him anything about Belize and you will surely get an answer.


Lascelle has many highlights in his life but you’d never hear it from him. Many years ago he was featured on the “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” as the guide for a newly wed couple who were the owners of the bottled water company Perrier. He is also featured in several other famous tour guidebooks including a guide book by Arthur Frommer and Handbook of Belize by Chichi Mallan.

Lascelle is an active member of the Board of Directors of the Belize Audubon Society and participates in the Society’s annual bird count. He has a keen interest in protecting and preserving the environment. He has also traveled to many countries in Europe, Asia, North and Central America promoting S & L Travel as well as Belize’s Eco-tourism destinations and what Belize has to offer.


We enjoyed our visit to Belize and our foray into Guatemala to see Tikal. We much appreciated the assistance of S&L Travel and Tours. Our trip met our expectations in terms of desired itinerary, pleasant hotel accommodations and high quality guides and drivers. Our guides and drivers were pleasant and informative. They were accommodating and made us feel safe and welcome. We much enjoyed our visits to Mayan archaeological sites and also liked our visit to the Belize Zoo. We found the lunches provided to us during the course of our travels to be tasty and more than enough to fill us up. All the logistics of our trip worked out well. We had a balance of seeing the sights and having relax time. We offer our thanks to E&L for assisting us to have a great trip to Central America.

Dear Nayla,

Thank you very much for all of your hard working on my delegation.
I have a short talked with my boss, he gave highly praise to your works,your guides arranged for us,and your company.
You did bring my delegation a great impression,and also a good experience of the journey.
Thank you so much,and please convey my gratitude to Mr.& Mrs Tillett.

King Regards

I am not sure that my words can express the appreciation I have for the work that Nayla did on putting together our family vacation to Belize this past May/June! She did a great job, took all of my considerations, and provided an amazingly adventurous, once in a lifetime trip.

Belize is beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of our 11 day trip. I’m not sure what was my favorite part: Lamania, Caracol, Rio on Pools, Tikal, Jaguar Paw or Placencia because each stop and tour offered something amazing and breathtaking!

When it came time to leave we were actually sad because with as much as we did, I felt that I was not finished enjoying the country. I hope to return one day and when I do, I’ll reach out to you again for your expertise.

Thank you also to Lascelle for driving us around as much as you did. It was nice meeting you and Sarita. Also, I want to comment on how great each of the tour guides were. I wish I could remember each of their names because they all deserve recognition but I can only recall Phillip, who took us to Caracol and Rio on Pools, and Santiago, who was most entertaining on our horseback riding adventure. Just wanted to make sure you knew that each one was helpful, welcoming, informative and very polite.

Hi Elvira,

I hope you had nice vacations!

I got a feedback from customers Grötzinger. They were having wonderful vacations in Belize.

First of all they said that Lascelle was an amazing and very lovely guide who was keen to fulfill their expectations and showed them lots of things. The hotels were good, especially Windy Hill and the lodge in Tikal. The guide in Tikal was very good and spoke English clearly which was very important to them. They also liked the driver very much.

Mr Grötzinger mentioned that Yaxhá was very beautiful and that he thinks we should include it more often in our itineraries.

What they did not like very much was their stay on Ambergris Caye. Mr Groetzinger says that the island equals a big dump… Moreover loads of seagrass was on the beach and in the sea everyday that it was nearly impossible to go for a swim. Perhaps we should keep that in mind for future customers. The Hotel Banyan Bay however was good, especially their suite.

Overall he gave me a very good feedback and I want to thank you for the great organisation!

Lascelle was our personal tour guide in Belize and Guatemala 20 years ago this month. It was a life-changing trip thanks to him. We added more than 100 birds to our life list, and we had three days in Tikal that were among the most amazing of our lives. In fact, this fall we will celebrate our 30th anniversary, and we plan to go to the rain forests of Costa Rica, a trip we would never have considered trying if we hadn’t had such an amazing experience with Lascelle. We are delighted to read that he is still impacting so many lives — he is a true national treasure for Belize!
