Getting Around Belize

Image
Getting Around Belize The best ways to get around Belize are by car, water taxi and plane. Taxis and rental cars are the most hassle-free mode of transportation around Belize City. Cabs and cars are also the easiest way to get to and from Belize City's Municipal Airport (TZA) just outside the city center or Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA), which is about 10 miles northwest of Belize City in Ladyville. Hopper planes also transport passengers to popular islands like Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. Water taxis are the best mode of transportation to access Belize's numerous cays. Attractions on the mainland are relatively spread out, but Belize itself is a compact country, equipped with commuter buses that transport passengers to popular things to do. However, these buses are typically run-down and routes can be difficult to navigate.

Water Taxi You can access water taxis in Belize City, Ambergris Caye, Corozal and Caye Caulker. In Belize, there is  San Pedro Beli…

Excessive consumption of alcohol, meat, and other foods proscribed during Lent is extremely common. Other common features of carnival include mock battles such as food fights; social satire and mockery of authorities; the grotesque body displaying exaggerated features, especially lar…
