From the international airport in Belize City, many of our
visitors choose to travel by small plane to Punta Gorda,
a total travel time of about one hour. Flights cost approximately
$75 US each way.
Many people enter Belize from the south traveling by boat
from Guatemala. The journey by sea takes about one hour,
following the coast up from Puerto Barrios and Livingston,
From the north the least expensive way to travel is by bus.
The overland route from Belize City takes approximately
8-10 hours, about half over unpaved road. However the government
hopes to have the Southern Highway completely paved within
the next few years, with road crews working very hard to
fulfill that goal.
Villages located along or near the southern
highway have bus service everyday. Buses to and from all
other Villages travel Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Buses leave for the villages from PG from 11 to 12. The
time of departure from the villages to PG varies but is
usually very, very early in the morning. Transportation
by car or van can be arranged by special request.
