Bus to Punta Gorda and then ferry boat to Honduras from PG. Do a search here on the times/days it goes, from memory there are a couple a week to different locations in both Guatemala and Honduras.

Many travelers would like to divide their time between Belize and Honduras. Others want to take advantage of cheap flights into San Pedro Sula and then move on to Belize. While Belize and Honduras are geographically not far apart, the problem for a long time has been that travel between the two countries is difficult and time-consuming.

Belize-Honduras travel connections are improving, but they remain less than ideal.

There are two weekly boats between Belize and Puerto Cortes, Honduras: D-Express leaves from Placencia on Friday morning (check in at 9 a.m.) and the Nesymein Neydy from Dangriga on Saturday morning (check in at 8:30 a.m.) D-Express returns from Puerto Cortes Monday morning and Nesymein Neydy on Tuesday morning. Cost is US$55 each way. To confirm times, etc. (schedules may change, especially off-season) for D-Express check with the BTIA office in Placencia – email tourism@placencia.com or call 501-202-4506. For NN try 501-522-0063 in Dangriga. You could also check with Mundo Maya Travel in the Marine Terminal in Belize City, 501-223-0457 or email mundomayatravels@yahoo.com, as they'll make reservations and sell you a ticket.

There are other options.

You can bus or fly to Punta Gorda and take one of the three daily water taxis from Punta Gorda to Puerto Barrios, Guatemala (three different outfits – Requena’s, Pichillingo and Marisol -- with departures at 9:30, 2 and 4 respectively, US$20--$22), and then from there make your way by shuttle to the border and bus to San Pedro Sula. You may also be able to get a taxi between Puerto Barrios and San Pedro Sula– cost is probably around US$40 to $50.

Another option is to fly from Savannah (across the lagoon from Placencia, with connections from other points) on Maya Island Air to San Pedro Sula. Fare is US$163, with discounts sometimes available. Maya Island says it plans to begin service all the way to Roatan soon. The web site suggests the flight is daily, but it's not -- email or call Maya for the current days they fly (www.mayaislandair.com ).

Another, fairly recent option is a weekly shuttle van/bus from Belize City to San Pedro Sula. It leaves Belize City at 6 a.m. Saturday from the Marine Terminal and is supposed to get to San Pedro Sula at 6 p.m. that same day. Cost is US$60 one-way. Check with Mundo Maya Travel for tickets. Email mundomayatravels@yahoo.com or call 501-223-0457.

The other option is to take public buses from Belize's western border at Benque Viejo through Guatemala to Honduras.

Note that the above prices don't include exit taxes and fees. The exit tax by boat from Belize is US$3.75, by land US$18.75 and by air up to almost US$40 if flying out of the international airport. Guatemala and Honduras also have exit taxes.

By bus & boat:
Bus to Belize City
Bus to Dangriga
Water taxi to Puerto Cortes, Honduras

Here's a site with all the up to date schedules & fares for buses, water taxis and links to the airlines:

Note: if you take the "Nesymein Neydy" water taxi, confirm the return date; my information (updated in April 2009) has the Honduras to Dangriga trip on Mondays.
