Belize Elective – Getting There
Price per person based on full 4 week elective.
There are several options for flying to Belize. Most flights travel through the United States, either through Houston or Dallas, on one of five carriers: Continental, American, U.S. Airways, Delta, or Grupo Taca (El Salvador). We no longer recommend Grupo Taca because of problems with their extremely-lame customer service. Students are asked to try to make reservations that arrives into Belize City during the working day, most of the North American airlines now do.
Quite often, students can find cheaper flights into Cancun, Mexico as opposed directly into Belize City. From there a simple 5 hour bus ride down the coast to Chetmal will link you to the ‘Thunderboat’ water taxi, that takes a few hours to reach San Pedro.
Once in Belize, students are expected to take public transport between host locations. The public transport network is very efficient, cheap and comfortable with air-conditioned buses. Services run all day and all week long (slightly limited service on Sunday’s).
