  Orange Walk District Travel Tip

Getting Around Belize

By Bus

Most major cities in Belize are connected via buses out of Belize City, utilizing the country's four major highways. The highways are in good condition by Central American standards, but not a high priority for maintenance. In other words, the crew filling in the pothole might be two men with a wheelbarrow.

Still, the busses are fairly clean and comfortable, low cost and frequent, which means traveling by bus is a reasonable way of getting around the country. Bus lines include Venus: 501.27.3354; Battys: 501.27.4924; and Novelos: 501.27.7372., they provide service to Orange Walk, Corozal,, San Ignacio, Belmopan, Dangriga and Punta Gorda as well as the border town of Chetumal in Mexico and Ciudad de Melchor in Guatemala. Reservations aren't necessary, but probably a good idea if you are on a tight schedule.

By Auto

Auto rentals are available in the more populated cities. Companies include Ace Auto Rental: e-mail ace@btl.net; Avis Rent A Car: e-mail avisbelize@btl.net; Budget Rent A Car: e-mail jmagroup@btl.net; Crystal Auto Rental: e-mail crystal@btl.net; Jabiru Auto Rental: e-mail jabiru@btl.net and Lewis Auto Rental: email lewisauto@btl.net. Customers must hold a valid drivers license and be over 25 years old.

Taxis are available in most towns and tourist areas and fares are reasonable. However, as with all taxis that don't come equipped with meters ( and even some that do) establish the amount before departing.

By Domestic Air

Daily flights connect most cities in Belize. Domestic airlines include Tropic Air (http://www.tropicair.com) and Maya Airways (http://www.mayaairways.com).
