Whether you are traveling to Belize with your family, your spouse, some friends, or by yourself, you will no doubt need to find a way to get around the country once you touch down at the airport. For most travelers, rental cars are the answer.
Having a car during your time in Belize will give you the freedom to see just about everything that the nation has to offer. The country is filled with off the beaten path attractions that you simply would not be able to visit without the convenience of an automobile.
For instance, animal lovers can take their rental car out to the Belize Zoo – about 30 miles West of Belize City. There, they will be able to take in the sights and sounds of over 125 different Belizean animals, including black howler monkeys, king vultures, tree frogs, and ocelots.
Sites like the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Community Baboon Sanctuary offer travelers an up-close look at Belizean animals in the natural habitat. To get there, all you need to do is hop in your car and drive.
Your rental car will also allow you to learn more about the history and culture of Belize. By driving it out to ancient sites such as Xunantunich, Cahal Pech, or Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, you will be able to discover everything you need to know about how the Maya people lived and worshipped.
The places you can go in your rental car are truly endless. If you are feeling adventurous, you can take a drive on Hummingbird Highway to the picturesque Garifuna town of Dangriga. While there, you can grab some delicious native food and say hello to the friendly locals.
If you travel a little further South, you can visit Hopkins Village. There, you can get a taste of the relaxed life enjoyed by the locals, go paddleboarding, or simply relax by the beach.
Of course, if you happen to be in Belize during the month of June, you should certainly take your rental car for a drive to Placencia. During that time, you will be able to enjoy all of the festivities of Lobsterfest – an annual tradition in the town. The event is home to more than 50 booths, lots of carnival games, and as much food as you can handle.
