Getting to Belize
  Orange Walk District Travel Tip

TRAVEL BY ROAD

One year while exploring Mexico we were very close to the border of Belize. It was tempting to cross over until we met another couple in a 4-wheel drive camper. They were armed with axes, shovels and a chainsaw, prepared to hack their way through the forest and to move fallen trees when necessary.

That was more than 15 years ago and the road then was a muddy trail. I imagine it has improved since, particularly now that hourly bus service is available from Chetumal, Mexico, to Belize City. If you plan to try it, make sure you and your auto are in good shape and don't forget you need separate insurance for both countries.

BY SEA

If you are arriving by boat, ports of entry include Belize City, Corozal, San Pedro and Punta Gordo. Check in with police or immigration upon arrival. Ferry Service is available between Guatemala and Punto Gordo.

ENTRY DOCUMENTS

Required documents for entry into Belize are passports and visas. Passports only are sufficient for citizens of most European community member nations, some Carribean countries, United States and Canada. Visas can be obtained at local Belize consulate. Fee is charged.

TAXES

For airport and border departure taxes enquire before leaving home.

Visitors under 12 and day visitors are exempt from departure taxes.
