Shuttle Service to Placencia

I contacted William from Belize Shuttle and Paul from Discounted Belize Shuttles and Tours. For our dates the one way shuttle from the Airport to Placencia was almost twice the cost with Belize Shuttle. Has anyone else experienced this? For anyone who has used Discounted Belize Shuttles and Tours were you happy with the service and the vehicle used for the shuttle.

Also for anyone who has stopped at the inland Blue Hole park were there places to change into swim suites then back into dry clothes?

I've used William to get to Placencia, but can't remember the price. Maybe DBST already has a shuttle going and can lower the price. There is a bathroom at the Blue Hole, which we stopped at along the way, where you should be able to change. Let us know how it goes.

Last week we have used the service from Paul Lanza from Discounted Belize Shuttles and Tours, +501-624-5022, pauldlanza@hotmail.com

They charges $70 US per person, were very accurate, profesional and on-time.

Great service which I can recommend.

We just returned last week from Belize and used Discounted Belize Shuttles for both our to and from shuttles. I couldn't have been more happy with Paul Lanza's communication he was always prompt with his responses, and everything he promised was delivered. Best of all he gave us a recommendation on where to fly out of on our way to San Pedro and saved us money. Abraham was our driver both ways and was on time and standing out front with a sign with our name on it (couldn't have been easier). Abraham stopped for beverages for us for our long drive from Belize Airport and gave us the inside scoop of what attractions to go to. I work in the hospitality industry and we travel around the world several times of the year, as a travel/service consultant I am extremely critical on customer service and can honestly say that Paul, Abraham and discounted Belize shuttles goes above and beyond when it comes to service and price.

Very happy with the professionalism and rates of Discounted Belize Shuttles and Mr Paul Lanza. I would not hesitate recommending his company and find him to be very honest and more than willing to accommodate.
