Getting To Belize

Located in Central America, Belize is easy to travel to from almost everywhere.

Unfortunately, airfare to Belize is not cheap. The main carriers are United, Delta and American Airlines with the main cities they depart from being New York, Miami, Houston and Atlanta – also, sometimes Los Angeles and Chicago. If you’re coming from Canada, you’ll definitely have to have a connection in the US. The same goes if you’re traveling from South America, Australia and Europe. Passengers from Central America fly using Avianca with a usual stop in El Salvador.

These flights all land at the Phillip Goldson International Airport code (BZE), known locally as PGIA.

Land transportation is the most inexpensive way of getting to Belize. This includes Mexico’s ADO buses from Cancun and Playa del Carmen to Belize City and Linea Dorada buses from Guatemala City and Flores, Peten to Melchor de Menchos, a small town next to the Western border of Belize. Private transfers can also be arranged.
