“I’ve rented dozens of cars in my life, but I was truly impressed by the level of service and attention to detail that I received from Roam Belize. It probably took less than 10 minutes on the phone to make the arrangements, and then the car was waiting for me at the airport. The car was exactly what I ordered, and everything went just great. It’s hard for me to remember when I have had such a pleasant experience renting a car. Made the whole trip just perfect!”

-Darcie Alvarez, Los Angeles, California

“Once my wife chose Belize for our annual vacation, I did my research. I knew our plane would be landing in Belize City, but I wasn’t sure the best way to travel to our hotel and see the things that we wanted to see. Somehow, I found Roam Belize, and it truly was the right choice. Their airport shuttle driver was waiting on us the moment we got out of the airport, and the ride down was super smooth. We even got some inside tips on great places to see. Definitely would choose this company again.”

-James Taylor, Reese, Michigan

“Originally, I thought I’d fly to Ambergris and Placencia once I got to Belize, but once I saw the prices, my heart skipped a beat. Luckily, Roam Belize exists, and I called and got a great rate on a rental vehicle. I’m soooo glad I did, as I was able to be flexible and go see a lot of really great things that I probably would’ve missed. Honestly, driving in such a beautiful country was half the pleasure of my vacation. My policy is never go to the same country twice, but thanks to Roam Belize, I think I’ll be returning next year!”

-Vivian Moore, Midlands, Texas
