Going Places without a car
By Bus: The bus can be an adventure. There are express which don’t stop between towns, and the ‘chicken bus’ which will stop everywhere and anywhere. Costs from Belmopan return are around $12 (Belize City) $20 (Corozal and Punta Gorda) $6 (San Ignacio) and $2 to Belmopan from Roaring Creek
To the Airport
Busses don’t go to the International Airport—you need to go to Belize City and then get a $25BZ taxi to the Airport terminal
To the Water Taxi
There are two in Belize City—Ocean Ferry (formerly Caye Caulker Water Taxi) and San Pedro Belize Express. Ocean Ferry is on the swing bridge and is a small open boat, which is great in the sunshine and not so good in the rain. The other company has bigger boats, two decks high with bathrooms. It’s around $35BZ round trip to Caye Caulker and $50 to San Pedro. They run hourly from early morning to around 5pm
They fly all over the country including the Cayes and have a small airport in Belmopan. Its way more expensive than the water taxi but if you can afford it, it’s a fabulous trip
This can work out quite pricey, but ask us for the best local drivers or local personal driver/guides who are more reasonable than you would imagine to hire for the duration of you trip.
