You could taxi to the bus station and take a bus, hire a taxi on the spot to take you to San Ignacio, or arrange a driver in advance. William Hofman comes highly recommended. Happy trails!

A taxi from the Belmopan airstrip to the bus terminal should cost about BZ$6 (per taxi, not per passenger), and then the bus fare is about BZ$2 to San Ignacio (buses depart every 30 minutes). However, being an airport taxi, the fare could be higher, maybe BZ$10 or $15.

A taxi directly from the airstrip to SI will cost about BZ$50. Make sure to agree to the fare and the currency before you get in the taxi (no meters here).

William always gets positive comments, but there are other transfer services, and the tour company or your hotel might also pick you up (that might be the most expensive option).

For more information about buses, taxis and a list of transfer companies, check the Belize Bus & Transportation Guide...

William is the best, but he's probably booked. As much as the taxis here will rip you off blind, that might be the best - aka quickest - option. I'd rather walk than take a taxi, but it is Belmopan.

Bus is not bad but can be a bit crampy if you have long legs as they are school bus style.

Talk to the resort you are staying with they should be able to line up transport for you.

Contact Pacz who will pick you up at the Belmopan airstrip and drop you back in time to catch the last flight from Belmopan to San Pedro on Tropic.

Thanks. They were able to arrange transport to Marthas in San Ignacio. Enjoyed the accommodation and loved the ATM tour.
