Getting To Placencia from the Belize Airport

We are going to Belize Feb. 21 and staying 8 days at the 3 Igaunas in Placencia (a house). We are deciding whether to fly, rent a car or hire a driver. It is about a 3 1/2 hour drive. Wondered if anyone can tell us if it is easy and safe to drive to Placenica. Is it difficult to get to? As nice as it would be to fly it will be expensive for us and we thought it might be nice to have a car but not sure if we should be venturing off on our own or need a guide.

Here are some other variables to consider when comparing ticket price from Belize City to Placencia. Are you traveling at peak season, or off peak? When and where did you pay for your ticket........... Did you book your Belize City Airport to Placencia while booking your primary ticket from your location to Belize City, or did you wait until you reached Belize City and pay for your ticket there. Do you know someone in Belize that can help you book your ticket? There are more variables, but the variables I've included are based on my personal experience. I recommend traveling off peak and reserving your ticket to Placencia at the same time you place your plane reservations from your location to Belize City, Belize. Happy Trails.........LAN

If you're flying from the US, you will arrive at the international airport in Ladyville, about 10 miles outside Belize City. You can fly to Placencia from there (BZE)

Or, take a cab to the Municipal airport right in Belize City, cost is US$25-30.00 for the cab, takess 20 minutes or so, and fly from there. It's probably cheaper, I haven't checked lately.

However you choose driver or self drive the trip is very picturesque by road we did it last year and would do it again - self drive as a car was useful in P lacencia - you will love it!

Going there next week. Booked a flight at $112 with taxes. Rather expensive for such a short flight but cheaper and simpler than renting a car as we don't intend to drive around for the rest of the trip.

Roam Belize has transfers BZE - Placencia for $225 for up to 3 people so if travelling with others a transfer with driver is a good way to go too and cheaper.
