Belize City to Dangriga bus

"Flying and driving are the most convenient ways to get to Dangriga. We can help make arrangements for both and arrange Dangriga airport transfers."

Dangriga is on the southern coast of Belize, only 36 miles due south of Belize City and the Belize International Airport. You can take a short 20 minute flight down the coast or a scenic 2 hour drive from Belize City. The drive from Belize City goes via the Western Highway to the capital of Belmopan, over the picturesque Hummingbird Highway and through the emerald Stann Creek Valley.

Two local airlines have regularly scheduled 20 min. flights to and from Belize City and the Belize International Airport. Both Tropic Air and Maya Island Air have a half dozen daylight flights to Dangriga that coincide with arrivals and departures of the international airlines, as well as connections to towns along the coast and larger islands offshore.

Pelican Beach Resort, Dangriga is only two minutes from the Dangriga airstrip.

Rental vehicles, transfers via local tour operators or public buses are options for getting to Dangriga by road. Distance and approximate driving times below:
