Travel Second – I have added a new and very useful link in my Belize links sections – Belize Bus Blog by MisterB. Paul and I are going to Ka’ana Resort and Spa for our anniversary later this month and I have been researching getting to Cayo by flying Tropic Air to Municipal and continuing on by bus. It hit me that more people need to know about Belize Bus website for researching travel plans. That is one of the great things about Belize travel there are so many great options. You can customize your adventure go somewhere one way and come back another – seeing new things meeting new people. I think I will also look into Tropic Air 8:00 am direct flight from San Pedro to Belmopan – we can do that on the way there and then use the municipal airport option on the way back.
MisterB is great I got a reply back from him very quickly and he answered my Belize Bus question.
Me – Can you tell me if it is possible to get a bus to Cayo by making our way to the highway instead of having to go to the bust station in town.
MisterB – After the buses depart from the terminal, they go to Central American Boulevard, around the roundabout at Cemetery Road, and stop at a bus stop on the north-west corner of the intersection of CA Blvd & Cemetery Road. There is a taxi stop on the south side of Cemetery Road opposite the bus stop. It’s a popular stop, so there should be several people waiting.
The buses continue west along Cemetery Road until it becomes the Western Highway. You could wait anywhere along that route, but the taxi fare will increase the further you get from the City, and you’ll be standing in the sun (or rain).
I would suggest going to the bus terminal because there will be a better chance of getting a seat, and a better waiting area (you won’t be standing in the sun).
For those of you who are in countdown to Belize Vacation mode I will leave you with a Tropic Air takeoff from Central Farm – Cayo – Belize. Video clip by by Leloudis1.
