Coming from Guatemala.

From the Melchor border, you’ll have two options; take a taxi to San Ignacio (should cost you $5 per person) or take a taxi to the Benque bus station ($3 per person) and then catch a local bus heading towards Belize City from there ($1.50). If taxi drivers try to charge you more than this, simply go ask another driver. These are the prices.

Orientation once you Reach

The main bus terminal is located in the center of town. If you are looking in the direction that the bus is facing then the main intersection is straight ahead of you. Once at the intersection, the street that crosses the one you are on is Burns Ave. Taxis can be caught from in front of the large yellow ‘Courts’ building in front of you. Keep in mind the town center is small, and most places can be reached on foot. Also you will want to keep an eye out for people trying to get you to go places straight off the bus. Anyone doing that I assure you, you don’t want to talk to.
