We've always used a transfer service for making this crossing as well. Mostly because I could never figure a couple of things. One, is where you catch the bus to Belize once you arrive in Chetumal. A couple years ago people on the travel boards were saying that it left from the 'new market', not the bus station in Chetumal. I have no idea if that was true, or if it's true now.

My second concern was it was/is impossible to find a Belize bus schedule on the internet. Last thing I wanted to do was sit in Chetumal for several hours waiting for a bus.

The other part of it is I'm pretty much an 'over planner'. Plane tickets and hotel reservations in hand most of the time. Hoping more time in Belize will 'fix' that problem....

One of our friends got stuck a couple of hours waiting for everyone on the bus to go through the customs line up (I think was from Guatemala to Belize though) That is what got us to use transfer service as I do not like line ups ha ha.

Glad to know it does not take so long for Mexico Cooper.

How far is it that you have to go from Corozal airport to catch the bus to Chetumal?

About 1/4 mile, but you would have to wait on the road, their is a little rest stop for shade. Hey, I am sure at times folks get stuck anywhere!!! Back to transfer service now that I have a need to know, Can you only catch it at the Airport in Chetumal or at the bus station also. I looked at the website and no prices, I emailed them for info but no answer back The only thing I did not like about the bus was carrying you stuff, most people dont have much so its not so bad.

Hi Cooper

We pre arranged with transfer service to pick us up right at the Corozal airport and they took us straight to Ado bus station in Chetumal after getting us past and explaining stopping points.

On our return trip we called them from Mexico and they met us in Chetumal and brought is back to the airport in time to catch the last flight to San Pedro.

I forget what the cost was if I can remember I will let you know.

The transfer service we used would have picked us up anywhere from the Cancun airport to Chetumal. Of course, the price from the airport would have been several hundred dollars. They also said they would pick us up any time of the day or night. I know it costs more, but it sure is nice not to have to keep transfering bags from vehicle to vehicle.

I've used a a taxi transfer service between Chetumal bus station and Corozal airstrip ever since I emerged from the customs hall to find my bus had gone. Everyone else on the bus was a local and zipped through formalities, and the bus simply didn't bother to wait. A taxi then cost me more than a pre-arranged transfer would have done.
