Once you arrive in Belize, you need a way to get around the country to ensure you see all the sights. What's the best way to get from point A to point B? There are various options depending on where you're staying, but most experienced travelers to Belize will tell you that a private shuttle service from Untame Belize is the best way to go. Let's look at the various options.
Renting a Car to Drive Yourself
Driving yourself might seem convenient, but it has some drawbacks. First, it can be dangerous. The roads here can be rough. Many are unpaved, and most are dotted with huge potholes, deep ruts and speed bumps.
Second, it's expensive. Car rental rates have gone up in Belize as they've gone up everywhere. Gas is very expensive here.
Belize has buses and a water taxi. You'll have to travel according to their schedule, and you'll also have to make sure you know where to pick them up. Water taxis can take you from Chetumal or Belize City to Caye Caulker and back.
There are also small, local airlines that can get you around the country quickly. These so-called puddle jumpers can whisk you from the airport to Caye Caulker, Dangriga or San Pedro. If you're staying on the cayes, you can rent a golf cart.
If you're hopping around from one end of town to another, it's easy to flag down a taxi. You can also find them at the airport, bus station and water taxi terminals. You should only get into a taxi that has a green license plate.
Keep in mind that sharing taxis is common in Belize, and your driver may pick up an additional passenger on the way.
