Arriving by bus?
Its quite a journey (approx. 4 hours from Belize City Bus Terminal) but it is safe and cheap. Expect not much comfort as it is a “chicken bus” you will be sitting in. See it as a cultural introduction to the country.
Where to get off the bus? Once you approach Maya Beach let the bus driver know that you want to get off at Coconut Walk Road, the next road after the supermarket and the police station. You follow the road to the end and you will see our sign “Simberts Apartment”.

Arriving by boat (Hokey Pokey Water Taxi)?
If you take the bus route to Independence, you will need to hop onto the water taxi. From Placencia you need to take a taxi which we can organize for you if you let us know about your arrival time.

Arriving by car?
Renting a car is a great option to come down to Maya Beach. We recommend Crystal Belize.
Driving directions: Exit the International Airport, turn right at the roundabout onto the John Smith Rd. (the Airport Link Road) After 5 miles turn right at the roundabout, exit onto Western Highway toward Belmopan. About ¼ mile after the Belize Zoo, in La Democracia, turn left at the roundabout onto the Coastal Highway. Follow the signage and continue on this road until the roundabout in Hope Creek. Turn left onto the Hummingbird Highway towards Dangriga for about 5 min. Then turn right onto the Southern Highway toward Placencia. After 25 miles, turn left at the roundabout toward Placencia. (there are always signs at the roundabouts or major intersections)

Once on the Peninsula drive through Maya Beach, after about half a mile you will see a supermarket and a police station on your right, take the next road to your right (Coconut Walk Road) and drive to the end.

The drive takes about 2-2.30 hours and its actually quite scenic.

Arriving by shuttle bus?
Taking the shuttle bus from the International Airport is also an option, quick, easy and comfortable. We recommend Discounted Belize Shuttles and Tours or William Shuttle Belize.
