Explore Belize’s countryside by car
There is plenty to see in Belize, and the best way to see it on your terms is by driving a rental car.
A car gives you the freedom to go where you want, and there’s no need to arrange transportation, hire a cab, wait for a bus or join a tour group. You can even set your own schedule and your own rules.
Where should you go on your scenic tour?
Start by visiting a nature preserve. Almost half of the land in Belize is protected by a wildlife sanctuary, marine reserve or forest preserve. Visit Guanacaste National Park in Belmopan, a popular nature preserve where you can enjoy a picnic meal, visit the interpretive displays, check out the bird-watching deck and take a refreshing swim in the river.
Spend time getting to know our favorite furry creatures at the Belize Zoo and Tropical Learning Center, a wildlife sanctuary that is accessible to visitors with disabilities or cuddle up with howler monkeys at the Community Baboon Sanctuary.
A car gives you the ability to enjoy any Belize adventure that intrigues you. Learn about our proud Maya history by visiting one of the many Maya ruins in Belize. You can drive to Caracol, Xunantunich or Cahal Pech, where you can hike, walk or amble through these impressive sites. Tour guides are available at each ruin.
If you want to tackle a real Belize adventure, take on the physical and mental challenge of exploring one of Belize’s famous caves. A car lets you carry your climbing and hiking equipment and visit all of these caves. After your exploration, take a refreshing dip in the Inland Blue Hole or the Maya King waterfall.
Driving in Belize is easy. Most of the main roads are paved and clearly marked. It’s a small country, and going from one end to the other won’t take long. The speed limits are low, which is safe for you and right in keeping with our easy, relaxed pace of life. Take your time and enjoy the scenery.
