Far from most other areas in Belize, taxis can get expensive as your main mode of transportation. However, the ability to personalize routes and negotiate prices may prove to be useful. Additionally, if you stay within Dangriga, the price of the taxi generally stays pretty low.
Dangriga is not overrun by taxis, but they are available to tourists who are in need. For the most part, you'll find them blending in with traffic, discernible only by the green license plates that indicate they are legal and licensed, or awaiting new arrivals by the airport. If you are in need of a ride, your best bet will be to call and arrange a pick up time.
Because of this, it is probably a good idea to contact a company ahead of time and avoid the risk of not finding one when you need it, or having to settle with a high fare.
If you happen to be stuck in a place where you can't seem to flag down a cab, call one of the companies below.
The cost of your ride will vary by driver since there are no meters or set rates, but in general, you can expect to get around town for less than $3.00 USD.
