How do you pick a resort in Belize? Look for one that offers a full package of transportation, tours, and luxurious amenities.

Arrival and Local Transportation in Belize

Belize is a small country, but it can still take you hours to get from the airport to several key locations. If you’re staying in Placencia, for instance, you’ll have a three-hour drive to your hotel. You can also take a 40-minute local airplane ride.

Some people rent cars for their stay in Belize. This is an option, but remember that car rentals are expensive in Belize and the roads can be tricky for newcomers. Many of them are unpaved and not well marked.

The safest, most convenient way to get to your lodgings is to book at a hotel with its own shuttle service.


Things You Need To Know Before Choosing A Resort in Belize

Planning Your Belize Meals and Drinks

Going out to eat is not expensive in Belize, but it can be time-consuming figuring out where you’re going to dine every day. You want to spend your vacation relaxing and enjoying your Belize adventures, not wondering if the food in a particular place is any good or where you can find a decent cup of coffee.

If you want convenience, you can’t beat a hotel with an all-inclusive package that includes meals and drinks. You’ll appreciate not having to worry about where you’ll eat every day.

Don’t think you won’t eat well at a resort. Belize’s best resorts have some of the finest dinings in the country.

Belize Excursions and Activities

Arranging your own tours and excursions can be confusing. You have to figure out how you’re going to get there, how much it will cost and where you can hire a guide.

In Belize, you’re better off going with a packaged tour that provides round-trip transportation, paperwork, payments, guides, and meals.
