Is It Safe To Drive In Belize?
Belize drivers are as well-trained as drivers in the U.S., and driving after drinking is unfortunately common.
Watch carefully when passing stopped buses — people may suddenly run around the bus to cross the road.
Outside of settled areas, you may drive for an hour or more and never see another car.
Be prepared: Bring water, a flash-light and other basic supplies, and a cell phone, just in case.
Don’t leave valuables in your car, locked or unlocked. In Belize City, it’s best to park in a secured lot, or at least in a well-lit area.
Do not pick up hitchhikers. Belize has strict drug and guns laws. You don't want to get caught up with the law in Belize.
