Vibe
The local people are really friendly and helpful.


Transport
Getting around the country is really easy.
  • The chicken buses run fairly frequently down the popular routes and are pretty cheap. It cost me a total of BZ$36 to travel from Punta Gorda to the Mexican border.
  • It is possible to fly internally. Airlines such as Tropic Air have regular flights all over the country.

Travelling into Belize.
There are 4 main entry points into Belize:
  • By air into Belize City airport.
  • By land either from Mexico or from Guatemala.
  • By Sea into the village of Punta Gorda
Most bus services into Belize go straight to Belize City. You can take shuttles to the more travelled destinations from popular hostels.
 
Entry into the country is free, however there is conservation levy upon exiting the country which is BZ$7.5 plus BZ$30 exit fee.
