How to get to BZE Airport to Dangringa, Cab, Bus, Cost?

My friend and I are flying into BZE Airport around 4pm and need to get to Dangringa after that.

Know there is a bus but how late and how reliable? Cab to Dangringa How much? Any advice would be very welcomed and thanks!

Why not just fly from BZE to DGA? Bus to Dangriga at the station in Belize City. Assume a taxi would be about 175.00 but google Margie's Travel Service at the airport and ask

I agree - I'd fly unless you want to stay nearer the airport and bus the next day.

By bus...

First, you'll have to get a taxi from the airport to the bus terminal in Belize City. That will cost BZ$50 (US$25) and take about 20 minutes.

Any express buses will have already departed by 4 pm, but you can get any westbound bus to Belmopan. These buses will have the final destination of "BENQUE" displayed in the front window of the bus, and depart every 30 minutes until about 9pm. The trip is a bit over an hour and costs BZ$5.

The bus will stop at Belmopan bus terminal where you get off and change to a bus to Dangriga. According to an old schedule, the last buses depart at 6:30 and 7:30 pm. The trip is about 1.5 to 2 hours, and costs about $5.

By taxi...

Get a taxi from the airport. My guess would be at least BZ$200 (probably closer to BZ$300) to Dangriga.

If you get a bus to Belmopan but arrive too late for a bus to Dangriga, finish the trip in a taxi.

Here's a site with a bit of info about buses & taxis and flights....

Thank you so much for the info. I had checked the wordpress site. Decided I will stay in Belize City the first night and then just catch the early bus to Daringa in the am.

How about the zoo? If you spend the night there you could do a night tour.

Clearing immigration and customs at BZE and the connections to the local air carriers are very easy and 1 way to DGA is $180BZD . The flight is 18 minutes, so its hardly worth the hassle to get to a hotel and the bus terminal in Belize City.
