I was going to vacation in the Yucatan but after I bought my tickets a few people mentioned Belize. I started looking in to a trip to the Cayes instead! Now I am so excited...but I need to get from Cancun to BC. Would prefer to fly or rent a car in Cancun and drive. I do know there is a bus to Chetumal, but this is a last option, I hope. Cost isnt a huge factor, but I dont want the flight from Cancun to BC to cost more than the rest of the trip! Thanks...can wait to get there!!!

The bus is really your best choice. Mexican buses, at least the first and deluxe class ones, are nice and comfortable, with reserved seats, A/C and videos.

There is no air service from Cancun to Belize.

While most car renters in Mexico don't permit their vehicles to be brought into Belize, a few do ... but if you're going to the Belize cayes it makes little sense to pay for a rental car when you can't take it to the islands.

Another Option is by taxi. If there is more than one person this can make it worth while. To do this go from the Airport in Cancun to the Bus Station then just go outside and look for a comfortable taxi that has A/C and enough room for you and your luguage then Bargain. You should be able to do it for less than 100USD and make sure it includes everything and that they will take you to the airport in Corazol Belize. Some of the expences for the taxi include Spraying and border crossing. Good luck this is an adventure and usually a little faster than the bus. If you arrive in Cancun in the Late afternoon then the bus may be your best option since most of the ride will be at night.

How about......stay one night cancun, plan your trip in the morn, take the bus with A/C from cancun to chetumal, arrange my friend from Menzies tours $ transfers to complete your transfer through the border and into corazol where tropic air will take you from a small dirt runway in corozal to Ambergris! The # for Willy is 501-42-22725.....or e mail menziestours@btl.net You will need a van to take you from Chetumal to corozal and through the border and sprayers, Menzies tours are your people!!!
Have fun, and watch out when you exchange your money if you do, that they dont rip ya!!

Menzies does a good job, although it is not necessary to have a tour operator take you through the border and to the airstrip. Just change from the ADO bus to a Novelo's bus at the main Chetumal bus station. For around US$2, the bus will take you across the border (the assistant will usually help with luggage and getting you through Mexican immigration) and into Corozal Town and after a brief stop goes on to Belize City. The bus will drop you at the airstrip, which is just south of town.
