Belize Car Hire

Belize City

Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Belize is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It's the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.

With rich jungles, sparkling blue seas and amazing ancient heritage, Belize is a place where every traveller can find something special. Most people get there by flying into Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport, but it's also accessible by road from Mexico and Guatemala, and by boat, with Belize City being the main port. A lot of cruise ships stop off there. Driving is by far the easiest way to get around, so it's great that car hire can be arranged in all major destinations in Belize.

Places to go

When you're ready to hit the road in Belize, the northern highway out of the capital is a must. The unimproved section is a rough drive and it's advisable to ask for a rugged vehicle from your car rental service, but the journey is well worth it to see the magnificent Altun Ha Maya ruins, whose several pyramid temples and subsidiary structures seem to provide a direct view back through time.

Worth the drive for its own sake is the Hummingbird highway, which will take you through some of the most beautiful countryside Belize has to offer. Citrus fruit orchards cast delicious scents onto the breeze, forested mountains tower overhead and lush, unspoilt jungle crowds up against the roadside. The road surface is not perfect, but with so much beauty to take in, you'll want to drive slowly anyway.

Things to know

Belize has significantly improved its roads in recent years, especially in the south, but many are still problematic and the intentional bumps used to slow down local drivers can be a rattling experience for visitors. It's safest to avoid night driving on minor roads, as there is little illumination and people often walk or cycle in the middle of the road.

Belizeans drive on the right hand side of the road. Signage can be poor but the road system is well organised and you'll find it fairly easy to work out where you are. In a country with so much to see, you'll want to get out and about as much as possible.
