Arriving in Belize from North
America is very simple
Most visitors reach Belize City via
daily flights from Miami, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth,
Atlanta, or Charlotte, NC on American, Continental, Taca,
Delta, and US Airways. Once you have arrived at the Goldson
International Airport in Belize City, there are regular
scheduled flights to Placencia several times a day offered
by Maya Island Airways and Tropic Air. The flight takes
about 40 minutes. From Placencia Airport to Sunset Pointe
takes about ten minuets by taxi or boat. There is in the
near future a plan to expand the airport at Placencia to
accommodate larger planes from Cancun.
You can also take a very beautiful drive to Placencia.
Go west on the Western Highway, then east across the Mayan
Mountains on the Hummingbird Highway, then south down the
Southern Highway to the Peninsula Road where the beauty
of the Caribbean Sea on one side and the lagoon on the other
side is overwhelming. The drive takes about three hours.
The roads are all paved.
