|Traveling to Belize by car through Mexico (about 1,350 miles form the U.S. border) can be a challenging trip as long as you do not mind driving the bumpy, less-than-perfect roadways. You must buy Belize auto insurance upon reaching Belize.
For ease and flexibility within Belize borders, renting a car is the best option. There are few major highways in Belize, which make for relatively simple travel. Little traffic, paved major highways, accessible fuel stations and tropical scenery make each road trip a tour in and of itself. When exploring areas off the major highways, a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended. Car rental companies are available right at the International Airport.
