Traveling to Belize City by shuttle
Belize City Transfer via shuttle
Belize City does not exactly top the list of tourist destinations in Belize. In fact, many visitors choose to bypass the country’s only major urban area via Belize shuttle service. This may be because the country’s main attractions are natural and nautical, rendering superfluous a prolonged visit to its only metropolis. BZ (Belize) Shuttle is available to transport you to San Pedro Express and other water taxi companies that have boats going out to Caye Caulker and San Pedro from the city often. They also cater to shuttle transfer for the ADO Bus to or from Mexico.
Information on Belize City.
Belize City is the historical (if no longer the actual) capital of the nation, making it an interesting place to spend a day or two. Its ramshackle streets are alive with colorful characters who represent every facet of Belize’s ethnic makeup, especially the Creoles. The urban scenery encompasses not just fetid canals and grungy slums, but also handsome colonial houses, seaside parks, bustling shopping areas and sailboats that bob at the mouth of Haulover Creek. You might find Belize City menacing, but you certainly won’t find it dull.
Haulover Creek separates the downtown commercial area (focused on Albert St) from the more genteel Fort George district to the northeast. Hotels, guesthouses and places to eat are found on both sides of the creek, with the majority of the city’s high-end hotels being in Fort George. The Swing Bridge, which crosses Haulover Creek to link Albert St with Queen St, is the hub of the city, and – some say – the heart of Belize itself.
Shuttle to Belize City
Shuttle going to Placencia or Hopkins from Belize City would first take the Gorge Price Highway drive west to the Capital Belmopan. Once there you will take the hummingbird Highway, then on to the southern highway, traveling past the Hopkins junction if you’re not go to Hopkins. Up next is the Maya Center area and finally you arrived at a round-a-bout where the shuttle will turn off on to the Placencia Road at Santa Cruz Village. At that point you’re about half hour from Placencia Village, which is at the very end of the peninsula.
Depending on your schedule and what you want to do, the shuttle route between Belize City and San Ignacio has many awesome stop that you can request.
