It's a 4.5 hour drive....depending on your speed. Carretera 307 is a good highway and you should have no problems, but be cautious of the...topes de velocidad...(speed bumps)especially when driving at night. Also, make sure you have your rental car papers in order....in case you are stopped. Have driven this route over 12 times, before i finally moved to Belize. Never had a problem.

It's about 325 miles from Cancun to Belize City. To do that distance in 4.5 hours, you'd have to average over 70 mph. It would be much more practical to plan on 6 to 6.5 hours and even that might be pushing it.

Did the drive last year, with all the topes and police checkpoints we did 5 hours from Bze border to Cancun airport. About a half hour to clear customs at Bze border if you just have persnoal stuff and about 2 hours to Belize City for a first timer.

which rental company did you use that would allow you to take across the border? We want to go for 2 weeks but wont need the car except for the drive to and from cancun any suggestions. With the 2 kids this sounds like the best option.

America Car Rental. Here is the link: http://www.america-carrental.com/carrental_policies.html Check them out. Hope this helps. In my previous post i stated 4.5hrs for a driving time. That time is from Cancun airport to CHETUMAL....NOT to Belize City....just so you know. From Cancun to Chetumal is 234 Miles...ok.
