Travelling To Belize

Ease of travel to your chosen property location is always important when making the decision to invest. Below are the options currently available

Most visitors to Belize from overseas will enter via Phillip S. W. Goldson International Airport – also known as Belize City International. The airport is located in Ladyville, approximately 11 miles north of Belize City, along the Northern Highway.

The airport receives flights from all major U.S. airlines – as of April 2013, these are the destinations:

  • American – Miami and Dallas/Ft Worth
  • Delta – Atlanta
  • United – Houston and Newark
  • US Airways – Charlotte

There is also International service by the following carriers:

  • Maya Island Air – Cancun, Guatemala City, San Pedro Sula
  • Sunwing Airlines – Toronto-Pearson
  • TACA – San Salvador
  • TAG – Flores

There is also extensive domestic service by both Tropic Air and Maya Island Air, which connects islands and smaller villages with Belize City and the Capital. Many airports are not much more than a landing strip in the middle of a field, but flying can sometimes be quicker than driving.

The road quality varies a lot throughout the country – from the three “main” roads (Northern- Western- and Hummingbird Highway) running across the country, to dirt tracks – Belize will never stop to amaze you. Travelling along the main highways is considered safe at all times of the day, though traffic can be very scarce in the evenings.

Some travellers also chose to fly into Cancun and drive (takes about 3-4 hours to Corozal town) and there is also a land border with Guatemala.

Citizens of the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom and any European Union country do not need any visa to enter Belize, and are granted an initial stay of 30 days at the point of entry.

No specific immunizations are needed for Belize, though Malaria tablets are recommended if visiting the rainforests, the southern part of the country, or spending extended periods of time in nature.
