How to Get To and From the Airport in Belize
Although Belize is a relatively small country (roughly about the same size as Vermont in America or Wales in the UK), it’s important to know how to get around once you land. All international flights land at the Philip Goldson International Airport (code: BZE) located just a few miles north of Belize City.
Once you’ve landed, you have several options to get to top destinations like San Ignacio in Cayo District, Placencia, Hopkins, and Dangriga in the southeast, Toledo in the far southern, and islands like Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye in the north.
All official taxis in Belize bear a green license plate. Although taxis are numerous and fares can be arranged to any destination in the country, this is the most expensive option. If you do decide to take a taxi, you’ll need to negotiate a price before getting into the vehicle.
Shuttles and Private Transfer
Several private companies offer shuttle service and private ground transfers to and from the international airport and popular destinations in the country. Roam Belize operates a fleet of modern, well-maintained vehicles that can take visitors anywhere in Belize. This is a far more affordable option than taxis.
International visitors with a valid driver’s license in their home country can rent and operate a private vehicle in Belize. Roam Belize has a full range of modern, well-maintained vehicles available for rent, allowing visitors to explore the country at their own pace.
Belize has two domestic air carriers: Maya Island Air and Tropic Air. These two air carriers operate a complete network of domestic flights between the international airport in Belize City and all of the top destinations in the country. Although fast and convenient, flying in Belize is, by far, the most expensive option.
The safest, easiest, and most affordable options for traveling in Belize are either arranging for shuttle service or renting your own vehicle via Roam Belize. When you book with Roam Belize, there’s never anything to worry about because the company has been in the business of helping travelers get from the Belize City international airport for decades and have a proud record of punctuality and world-class service.
