What are the best ways to travel around Belize?

Getting around Belize is relatively easy and part of the adventure.

Travelers can navigate the country by plane, bus, car, boat or horse, that’s right, horse. Below is a list of the many ways to discover our great country. We hope to see you soon.

Transportation includes local airlines, helicopter, rental cars, tour operators and buses that make getting around Belize easy. Remember to pack your sense of adventure, whether you’re headed to the beach, a dive site, Maya temples or any combination, be ready for a journey.

For a small nation, we have a well-planned highway and road system that connects all mainland towns, villages and attractions. This allows travelers to fashion a unique combination of experiences in one of the last unspoiled places on earth.

There are small airports in Belize centrally located around key points of interest in the country, bus terminals in most towns and boat services operating from all major coastal regions and island towns.

Travel via local airlines in passenger aircraft is the fastest and most popular means of transportation throughout Belize, especially for itineraries that combine different in-country locations. Flight schedules are coordinated with the arrival and departure of international flights, for even more convenient traveling and exploring.

Belize City and the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA) are hubs for most rental agencies with localized services available in the larger tourism destinations.

Boats, known locally as water taxis, are the primary means of transportation between the islands and the mainland and, of course, to barrier reef attractions. Regularly scheduled water taxis operate between Belize City, Caye Caulker and San Pedro.
