  • Water Taxi

    Caye Caulker Transportation

    To/From Belize City to Caye Calker/San Pedro- take the Caye Calker Water Taxi; it's more comfortable, and I believe they stole my iPod out of my bag on the other, more uncomfortable San Pedro Belize Express Water Taxi.

    Belize City Transportation

    This is called the San Pedro's Belize Express and you can find the station at the Belize Terminal. It's actually a water taxi. It goes from Belize City to Caulker, San Pedro, Chetumal, Mexico. Here's their daily schedule as of September 2011: Belize City to Caye Caulker & San Pedro: 9:00 am, 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 5:30pm Caye Caulker to Belize...

  • Boat / Ferry

    Belize Transportation

    People arriving by cruise ship currently have to tender to get into port. What that means, for those who are not familiar with the term, is that instead of walking off and walking back on the ship, you have to take a smaller boat to get into the port. There were 5 or 6 large cruise ships in the day we came in but the tender process was still...

  • Golf Cart

    Caye Caulker Transportation

    .GOLF CART ..as of today, March 2009 - the rates at M&M's are 10.00 USD for 1 HR 65.00 USD for the whole day. I can't imagine why you'd want one for the whole day, unless you have a lot of stuff?! You can see the whole island is 1-2hrs....

  • Boat / Ferry

    Belize City Transportation

    I came to Belize city as part of a cruise, so that's the only place I got to visit (albeit briefly) of all Belize. Getting to the city from the boat takes a lot of time, as it is a tender port and the boat stops quite far away from the shore. It took us over 15 minutes by tender to get to the terminal and - obviously - we were not the first to...

    Belize Transportation

    Almost 2 weeks later, at the end of our trip, we returned to Belize City for one night. This photo shows the mini-van shuttle that brought us from San Ignacio, 72 miles away on the Guatemala border. We had spent a week there, based at a great lodgings called the Trek Stop, and they had a planned run into the city for an airport pickup, allowing us...

  • Flying

    Caye Caulker Transportation

    At the moment, pretty much the only way one can fly to Belize is to catch a connection in the US. By 2015, the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport should be able to accommodate flights from Europe but currently, most people who fly to Belize do so by traveling with American Airlines (with connections in Dallas/Fort Worth or Miami) or...

  • Airplane

    Belize City Transportation

    I'll always fly American Airlines, that's unless I don't have another choice. Flying to Belize from NYC was quite easy with American Airlines. They have many flights daily with connections in either Dallas or Miami. We flew from Newark making our connection in Dallas on the outbound, and on our return flight home we connected via Miami. The flight...

  • Rental Car

    Belize Transportation

    You will need a car if you want to have your freedom on the mainland. They tell you the roads are bad, but you have no idea how bad they are. At one point, and I wish I had taken a picture of this, the road we were driving up looked like when a bunch of rocks slide down the side of a mountain. They are almost undriveable. That said, I now have a...

  • Walking

    Caye Caulker Transportation

    Caye Caulker including the north mangrove end on the other side of the Split is only about 5 miles long. There are three streets. Front Street, Middle Street, and Back Street. I was so tired from walking through the sand from the airstrip to our cabin and it was so hot that I considered renting a golf cart. But golf carts were $10/hour and I...

    Belize Transportation

    We came in to Belize on American Airlines. If you are going to have to be somewhere in Belize by a certain date, it might be a good idea to fly in a day in advance so you can deal with any snafus. Book as early as possible to get the best rate and try not to have a lot of connections to make. Especially if you book early, reconfirm about a week...

  • Bikes

    Caye Caulker Transportation

    The island is about a mile long and maybe 200 yards wide and all the roads are sand, hence there are no cars on the island. Every where is walkable,if you have luggage you can get a golf cart taxi or many places rent bikes.

    Belize Transportation

    When staying on the Cayes, lots of the accommodations offer bikes. They are a great way to get around the relatively small islands. With the baskets on them, you can actually carry back quite a bit too, if you are going for supplies or shopping. If you are getting something really big, you can also rent golf carts (the main means of transport on...

    Belize Transportation

    Moncho's Rentals is where I rented my golf cart for $32.00US per day. I stayed at Mata Rocks and walked the beach front most of my stay. If you have no injuries walking everywhere is easy and safe. From Mata to downtown was a 30 minute beach walk. Again I traveled alone and never felt unsafe. It is impossible to get lost since there are only...

  • Renting a van to Altun Ha

    It is best to find other people or a group to go to Altun Ha and rent a van. There are many independent tour guides in Belize. This will cut down your cost to get there. It cost $45.00 per person to go to Altun Ha and there are about 12-16 passengers in a van. Make sure to find a van that is airconditioned. It takes at least two hours to go to...

  • Water Taxis are Great

    When it was time to leave Caye Caulker, heading for San Pedro on Ambergris Cay, I walked across the beach from our hotel to buy our water taxi tickets (US$10 each, credit cards accepted) for the 10 AM departure, giving us plenty of time to pack our backpacks for the short ride. It was not long before our departure time that we were standing at the...

    Our Trek Stop accommodations, just outside the hamlet of San Jose de Succotz, was very conveniently located for visiting the Mayan ruins at Xunantunich - a short 15 minute walk along the main highway toward Guatemala brought us to this scenic ferry crossing. This hand-cranked affair crosses back and forth over the Mopan River, providing the only...

  • Water Taxi to Caye Caulker & San Pedro

    From Placencia, there is a ferry directly to Honduras. The boat leaves Placencia, Belize every Friday at 9:30am, and returns from Honduras to Placencia, Belize on Monday. That is a direct connection across the Bay of Honduras, bypassing Puerto Barrios in Guatemala. It is about a 2-hour boat ride, give or take.The fare is $50 US per person.

  • Those Crazy Belize Buses

    Bus travel in Belize leaves much to be desired. The buses are of the old school bus variety. They are very uncomfortable and crowded. About the best that can be said for them is that they do run their routes frequently enough that there is little trouble in getting from point to point. They also quite affordable to use. Part of the problem here is...

    The Puerto Cortez (Honduras) ferry leaves every Saturday morning around 9, though probably later, from the docks at Dangriga.

    If you choose to stay on Ambergris Caye and want to take a tour to the Mayan ruins, go cave tubing, zip lining, etc., the most efficient way to do so is by prop plane. Not the most cost effective, but certainly the fastest way to travel (I was advised that the water taxi from Belize City to Ambergris took 1 hour...a long time on a small motor...

    If you decide to drive be prepared that even when you have maps, roads, streets are not marked well or not marked at all (you have to ask locals for directions), gas is more expensive than in the US, and there is a lot of bumpy dirt road in Belize, so I personally don’t recommend driving there (bus and taxi is cheap).Bus stations are very small,...

The bus only costs $6 although it takes about 2 hours, they have a 10 min stop in Orange Walk where vendors come on and sell drinks...

    Whenever we wanted to make the 6-mile (10-km) drive from the Trek Stop into San Ignacio itself, we found that 'share cabs' were a great option.

All you have to do is stand on the side of the...
