Hello everyone.

I am in the process of making transportation arrangements for mt vacation in Belize next month. A hotel where I will be staying prior to my departure from the international airport is near Hopkins. I contacted them asked how much it would cost to get from the hotel to Belize City airport for a party of 3 with some luggage. They quoted $275 for a taxi ride. Can anybody tell me if this is a normal price? If not, how would I go about finding something not quite that expensive?

Thank you.

Hopkins is quite aways away from the airport, 275.00 sounds about right
Reality..What a concept!

Personally I have never driven the route, I would guess 2 to 3 hrs

You would be best to contact your hotel, I am sure they would have a better idea as to how long a trip it is

Thank you. I just sent them an e-mail. I just needed to validate $275 as it seemed rather high.

From Hopkins you would drive to Belmopan then to Hattieville, through the Boom road and on to the airport. The total distance is about 110 miles. They may take the Coastal road but I doubt it. $275 seems pretty reasonable.

fly to dangriga, your hotel will pick you up at the airstrip.
18 minute flt, 3 hr drive. Though it is a nice drive, as long as it's during daylight.
