Getting to Belize

We have received many calls from people searching for details on booking this in advance. Unfortunately, we do not have any way of booking the bus.  From our understanding, the common practice is to arrive at the Cancun, there are ADO ticket booths in both terminal 2 & 3, which is where most international arrivals happen.  Our suggestion is to arrive in Cancun and taxi to the ADO bus terminal with enough time to purchase tickets in person.  There are several accounts online to do it different, but this is the only way we are certain to book the option.    

Here is a great Blog with lots of transportation options to Belize and within the country.  We hope you find it helpful.


Good luck on your search.
