Taxis are one of the simplest ways to get around in Belize. In addition to being widely available, they are also inexpensive.

Taxi Companies

Maps

Each of Belize's cities has its own taxi companies and fare schedules. Still, you'll find that a few things remain the same:

  • Taxis are easily identifiable by green plates indicating their status as an official taxi.
  • Remember to negotiate the fare before you get into the taxi.
  • Taxi drivers will often attempt to get the attention of tourists.
  • Taxis in Belize never have meters.
  • Small children are not required by law to be restrained in a child safety device, and taxis will not provide them to those who wish to use them as a precaution. If you don't feel comfortable traveling in a moving vehicle without a car seat or booster seat, make sure to bring your own from home.
