Getting to Placencia Belize
5. Re: Getting To Placencia from the Belize Airport
My first advise would be to detour around Belize City just because it's congested, confusing, and nothing to see until you get well way from the coastal plains
The airport is in Ladyville, about 10 miles northwest of Belize City. It's closer and much faster to turn left on the Northern Highway and then left to Burell Boom, then south to Hattieville and right on the Western Hwy.
You don't want to take the Coastal Highway as it is very rough gravel and rock and not scenic. Continue on the Western Hwy., hopefully stopping at the Belize Zoo, and then on to Belmopan (the capital city) and turn south on the Hummingbird Hwy. which is paved and in great condition. There's lots of turns and a few one-lane bridges as the road skirts the edges of the Maya Mountains, but it's faster and the scenery is beautiful.
You can stop for ice cream at the Mennonite settlement of "Over the Top" where you cross over the mountains.
As you get closer to the coast, the mountains fade away and you go past some orange juice processing plants and then before you get to Dangiga you will turn right on the Southern Hwy. There's not much to see or do in Dangriga. It was settled by Garinagu (Black Caribs) who never tried to develop tourism.
Continuing south on the Southern Hwy. you would eventually turn left on the road to Riversdale and then right to Placencia. The road deadends on the Placencia peninsula. It's a great beach area and fairly close to interesting places like Punta Gorda, Mayan ruins, wildlife viewing, etc.cheapest flights from dallas flights to philippines miami cancun flights google flights explore southwest flights to vegas true flights flights to seattle from san diego flights to charlotte cheap flights to cancun flights to china chicago to austin flights flights to syracuse ny american airlines cancels flights swa flights skyscanner flights flights google com how to find cheap flights bora bora flights flights united airlines flights to dallas texas india to usa flights chicago to houston flights airlines cancelling flights flights of passage flights from dallas to denver atlanta to new york flights cheap flights to charlotte nc austin to denver flights flights houston to chicago delta flights to vegas orlando new york flights flights to gatlinburg tn travelocity com flights cheap los angeles flights compare flights spirit flights bora bora flights cheap flights to orlando flights to spain cheapest flights from phoenix google flights search anywhere cheap flights southwest airlines one way flights flights miami jetblue flights check in cheap flights from msp boston flights flights from atlanta to dallas phoenix flights flights from slc klm flights cheap flights tickets flights to new zealand flights from chicago to orlando flights to maryland buffalo ny flights flights to guam flights to santorini greece flights to scotland southwest international flights flights from phoenix to cancun dc to chicago flights newyork flights flights to phoenix az pittsburgh to miami flights flights from usa to india best time to book flights flights from memphis to atlanta flights to florida san francisco flights flights to orlando florida kiwi flights paris flights cheap flights from msp flights to pittsburgh
