The whole country is serviced by a couple of different bus lines. They usually run on time and they are most always full. They are also old school buses from more developed countries. The main lines go from the border to Belize City to Belmopan. At Belmopan you can either head towards Dangriga with the James Bus line, or to San Ignacio, Benque Viejo del Carmen and the Guatemaln border. If you are heading to San Ignacio you'll want to get on the bus with the Benque sign in the window as that is the last stop on the line.
Water is also a popular transportation source. Water taxis and ferries that depart from the Marine Terminal to the outlying cayes, including the larger resort cayes such as Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye.
