Geography question somewhat

Hello Forum again, I've doing doing a lot research and thank all of you that
answer my questions and help me so much.
I understand there are several places in Belize that have pros and cons of
moving or staying for several months.  Ambergis Caye, Corozal, San Pedro
and Placencia.
So my question is:  Once I arrive in Belize this November for a week, is
it easy to get from one town to another, ie: San Pedro, then Ambergis Caye
etc.,  are there guides or taxis and is the travel from one to another hours
or half a day..?  Any help would be appreciated...thanks...Angie.

You really need to take a good look at google maps of Belize to gain an understanding of how these places are laid out. San Pedro is a town on the island of Ambrose Caye. It is a short flight from the mainland (Belize City).

Belize City is about a 3.5 hour drive through the mountains via Belmopan to Placencia. As you are going during the rainy season, for only a week I doubt you can REALLY see more than two areas.

Again take a really good look at maps of the country to gain an understanding of distances.

One thing...San Pedro is on Ambergris Caye....for all those you mentioned is either by vehicle or boat.

You should decide before you arrive, which towns you really want to see and spend a couple of days in each.

If you are thinking of moving here, you should be aware that the main ex-pat destinations are Ambergris Caye, Placencia and San Ignacio - if that is what you want.

Placencia and Ambergris are on the sea and property prices and the cost of living is high. San Ignacio, in the Cayo District, is inland and much less expensive - and in my opinion, the best place to live in Belize.

I have lived in Belize for over 30 years and I wouldn't live anywhere but Cayo.
