Belize is a small country but it is an incredibly beautiful land blessed with both picturesque offshore islands and lush rainforests in the interior. The least populated country in Central America, Belize is a small country, making it easy to explore all of the natural beauty when you rent your own vehicle.

Indeed, many people say that getting there is half the fun as there are so many amazing things to do and see. Here are a few reasons why you’ll be glad you rented a vehicle on your Belize vacation:

Set Your Own Pace

Instead of worrying about bus, plane, or shuttle schedules, you can explore Belize at your own pace with a rental vehicle. Whether you want to head into historic Belize City to see the Belize Museum or want to stop off at the Belize Zoo to learn more about wildlife in the country, you can follow your own itinerary. And if something catches your eye along the way, it’s easy to stop for a moment and snap an unforgettable photo!


All international flights land in Belize City, and Tour Belize Auto Rental has an office located right at the international terminal. Belize City is connected by four modern highways to all points in the country, and most destinations can be reached in three hours or less. Whether you’re interested in touring the colorful San Ignacio market in the west or want to relax on a beach in Placencia in the east, having your own vehicle makes it convenient to see all the sights on your itinerary.


Nature is definitely Belize’s biggest draws, whether it’s the misty mountaintops of the Maya Mountains or the tallest waterfalls in Central America in the vast Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve. With your own vehicle, you can find that perfect picnic spot or stop for a refreshing swim at the Inland Blue Hole on the Hummingbird Highway.


Having a vehicle allows you to find the hidden “nooks and crannies” of the country, whether that’s stopping off at a small Garifuna village to witness their incredible music and dancing or visit Dangriga, the bustling cultural capital of the country. With your own vehicle, you can stop anywhere you like, a great way to meet the incredible people of Belize that make the country such an amazing place.
