- Most major US carriers fly to Belize City International Airport. From there it is a short (40) minute internal flight to the Placencia Airport with either Tropic Air or Island Air. The short flight is very scenic so be sure and have your camera ready!
- After arriving at Belize International Airport (BZE) you will go through passport control then proceed to baggage claim and Customs. This whole airport is very small and easy to navigate.
- Upon leaving customs you will be in the airport lobby where you can leave and walk across the parking lot to the car rental agencies or proceed to the local airline check in desks. You should allow 1 hour from your arrival time at BZE to your departure time to the Placencia Airport. These local airlines exist to get tourists to their final destination in Belize and are very accommodating.
If you choose you can rent a car across the parking lot from the International Airport and drive to Maya Beach. It is a beautiful 3 hour drive through savannas, rain forest mountains, citrus and banana plantations. The rental agency will provide you with driving directions to Maya Beach.
