An interesting, yet inexpensive way to reach Belize is by bus. Bus travel to Belize from the U.S. border cities on through Mexico City and Chetumal is comfortable and affordable. All-weather highways connect Mexico City with Chetumal. Several bus companies within Belize connect Chetumal, Mexico to Belize City. If you have extra time and wish to take the scenic route go to Belize by bus.

Once in Belize, the least expensive way to explore northern lands is by bus. The bus system is efficient, safe, and affordable. Frequent daily buses cruise the highways between Belize City and Corozal and Orange Walk Town. Buses from all southern destinations will stop in Belize City first before moving on to northern parts. One should expect the trip from Belize City to Corozal Town or Orange Walk Town to take approximately two hours. Express buses from Belize City will reach the town faster because they do not make any stops to pick up roadside passengers. You can reach the bus station in Belize City by taxi from the International Airport. The taxis run regular schedules at a cost of approximately BZE$35 split between all passengers.


No reservations are required and buses fill up quickly at certain times of the day, leaving travelers with only standing room for the trip. Arriving early should ensure a seat when traveling during rush hours.

Public bus transportation is available in Progresso Village, approximately one mile from the development to most towns in Belize such as Orange Walk and Belize City, then from Belize City to points west and south.

 

Traveling to Belize by car through Mexico (about 1,350 miles form the U.S. border) can be a challenging trip as long as you do not mind driving the bumpy, less-than-perfect roadways. You must buy Belize auto insurance upon reaching Belize.

For ease and flexibility within Belize borders, renting a car is the best option. There are few major highways in Belize which make for relatively simple travel. Little traffic, paved major highways, accessible fuel stations and tropical scenery make each road trip a tour in and of itself. When exploring areas off the major highways, a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended. Car rental companies are available right at the International Airport.
