    Share Cabs

    A Share Cab drops us off at the Trek Stop

    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. These green license-plated taxis are to be found everywhere in the San Ignacio area, as they cruise the roads between the town and the Guatemalan border. All you have to do is stand on the side of the street or highway and make a hand signal if you see one approaching. If there is room in the cab, it will pull over and, if not, the driver will give a shrugging gesture and keep on moving. You may have to share the cab with other passengers that he has picked up before you, and the first to be dropped off will depend on the destinations of whoever is in the cab. The standard fare is $BZ6 (US$3), even for a couple travelling together, as we were. Some of the cars were a bit rough around the edges (Sue said the suspension was so bad in one that it felt like she was sitting directly on the rear axle every time it hit a bump), but the drivers were friendly and it was a cheap service. When we went on our 2-day jaunt to Tikal National Park in Guatemala, we also used share cabs for our trip from the Trek Stop to the border and back.

    Se deplacer en taxi est moins que pas cher...Certes les vehicules,surtout les vehicules US ne sont pas de l'année, voire même de la décennie, +tot du siecle dernier...

    Taxies are cheaper tban cheap...OK sometimes they did millions km before to meet you...but it wheels...

    Taxi

    San Ignacio town

    I fyou travel within Belize and are in need of a taxi, there are no shortages, but do make sure you ask how much before you get in and don't forget to ask if it is in Belizean or US dollars as the exchange rate is fixed at 2 BZ Dollars to 1 US Dollar.

    A taxi from Belize airport to Belize city will cost you 20 US Dollars this is a fixed rate.

    A taxi from Belize city swing bridge to the main bus depot is likely to cost 3 BZ dollars per person.

    A taxi from Belmopan to San Ignacio is likely to cost you 35 US Dollars.

    Of course all this depends on the local taxi drivers at the time, so pick the friendliest most honest looking face.

    Air travel in Belize

    by Lowflyer Updated Apr 5, 2004

    The best pick for air travel in Belize is "Maya Island Air, or Tropic Air. For phone numbers and websites see www.belize.com

    If you are travelling to Belize from Mexico via bus or car and need a very reliable guide or just good information or a taxi, contact Alvin Leslie. Ask anyone in Corozal for him. He is the best known and respected guide/taxi operator in the area, if not all of Belize.

    We took an expensive taxi ($18) from the airport to the bus station. The taxi is the only way to get there. We caught the 3pm Express bus out to San Ignacio. It made very few stops but the ac on the bus wasn't strong enough to keep the heat out but for $6 I'm not complaining. It was the easier way to get out to San Ignacio and back to Belize City again. We did rent a car for one day while we were out there, very expensive, $168, but we covered a lot of ground that we wouldn't have been able to see otherwise.

    We used American Airlines to get there from Chicago. We made a stop in Dallas-just long enough to get a stretch. The service was great.
    On the mainland, we used a taxi to get into town and then used tours. The area is changing rapidly, but if you plan to drive around, keep in mind that there are not many road signs and that it is a third world country. You must use some commmon sense and not act like a tourist.
    On the island, we rented a golf cart for the day. For the rest of the week, we were too busy to drive around and sometimes we walked into town since it was less than a mile.
