great post by SanPedroScoop....


Just a few days ago, I made my way out to Western Belize. 91 miles as the crow flies but from the far north east of the country almost to the western border with Guatemala.

Simply put: less than 100 miles from reef to jungle. Its AMAZING how landscapes can change so quickly in Belize. My trip: the pink circle to pink double circle. I was spending a night in San Ignacio town and getting up early to head into the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve (blue star) an area like no other in Belize BUT Ill tell you about that in a future blog post.

There is a flight via Tropic Air that will quickly take you the distance. I went the scenic aka the budget route.

  • Golf cart ride from 7 miles North Ambergris Caye to San Pedro Town (40 mins)
  • San Pedro Belize Water Taxi ride from San Pedro Town to Belize City (1 hour 15 mins) I took the 8:30am boat
  • Express bus from Belize City to San Ignacio (2 hours 15 minutes)
