Driving in Belize

Driving in Belize is an adventure that may test you, depending on where you’re heading.

Driving in Belize is an adventure that may test you, depending on where you’re heading. You can rent a car at the Belize International Airport. Several car rental companies can be found right in the parking lot of the airport. Be sure to get a map of Belize and directions from your hotel to wherever you are going. Know that no matter how good the directions may seem, there will probably be a fair amount of guessing and hoping that you are on the correct road. Just look at it as part of the adventure, because it is. While there are signs directing you from town to town, the signs are few and far between and you may go several miles wondering if you are still on the right track. Again, the journey is part of the destination. If you get lost, one of the locals will be happy to point you in the right direction.

If you’re renting a car, be sure to get a sturdy 4x4 as the roads here are bumpy. We also advise that you only drive during the day...finding yourself on a very dark, very bumpy, very long and twisty road during the night is not a good idea. Besides, wouldn’t you rather be relaxing at night?

Also, you'll notice speed bumps and lots of them. We use speed bumps as opposed to stoplights in many areas. You really have to slow down when approaching them. They're frequent, but it gives you the opportunity to slow down and see a little bit more of the country, and you can probably buy a tasty treat from one of the local vendors.

It’s not all bumps here. There are three paved highways running through Belize that can get you where you need to go. They are: the Phillip Goldson Highway, which runs between the Mexican border and Belize City; the George Price Highway, running between. Belize City to the border of Guatemala; and the Hummingbird Highway which leads to southern Belize.
