I am trying to figure out the logistics of taking a taxi from the Guatemalan border to San Ignacio.

First, I assume taxis are readily available at the border for this. What is the travel time and approximate cost?

Any other information/tips appreciated!

From Lonely Planet: Taxi
Several taxi stands are dotted around the town center. Sample fares are BZ$20 to the Guatemalan border (9 miles) or Crystal Paradise Resort (5 miles), BZ$60 round-trip to Xunantunich, and BZ$80 to BZ$100 one-way to the Mountain Pine Ridge lodges.
Colectivo taxis (charging per person and leaving when they have a full car) head from a vacant lot on Savannah St to Benque Viejo del Carmen (BZ$4) and the Guatemalan border (BZ$6). Taxis to Bullet Tree Falls (colectivo/private BZ$4/15) go from Wyatt St, just off Burns Ave.

Perfect, thanks klc...I should have known to check out Lonely Planet...I love their guidebooks and have found them to be the best information.

I think those prices are a bit out of date. I was in San Ignacio a few weeks ago and it was $15 US from town to the SI airstrip which is about half way to the border. Try emailing this taxi driver to get a quote. Miguel Aguilar [email protected] Or locally call Rene Young head of the Savannah Taxi Co-op 501-636-1844.
