Getting Here


Getting to Belize

Belize has international air services to Philip Goldson International Airport (PGIA) located in Belize City from all major American hubs as well as direct flights from Canada, Panama and Cancun.

Thanks to increased competition between major airlines in the United States and Canada, it is now easier and more affordable than ever to enjoy a wonderful vacation in Belize. Southwest Airlines operates three non-stop routes to Belize from Houston, Denver and Fort Lauderdale. American Airlines, Delta, and United Airlines also operate non-stop flights to Belize City from major US cities. If you are travelling from Canada, Air Canada and Westjet offer direct flights to Belize from Toronto and Calgary seasonally.

A passport is required to enter the Country of Belize, and a return ticket. Tourist visas are required for stays over one month, these can be obtained once in the country only.

Getting to Placencia

Tropic Air and Maya Island Air offer daily hopper flights once in country. Flights from the Belize International Airport to Placencia take approximately 25 minutes. Upon arrival at the Placencia airstrip, we will arrange for a taxi to pick you up at your cost and bring you to Los Porticos Villas, for less than ten US dollars.

Another option is to rent a car and drive to Los Porticos. Try to travel in the daylight hours, as the roads in Belize are not well-marked.  We partner with Budget Car Rentals and can arrange for a vehicle for you to be picked up at the international airport upon arrival.  Car rentals can be arranged by contacting the Concierge Team. The drive from Belize City is approximately 3 hours.   Los Porticos Villas are located about ¼ mile south of the airstrip.  If you reach the village of Placencia you have gone too far.  A car is not really needed in Placencia because the village is small and easily accessible by taxi, bike, golf cart or walking.

If you are traveling in a group or have a lot of luggage a shuttle pick-up at the International Airport in Belize City may be a better option for you. Our concierge team can make the arrangements. A private van will pick you up and drive you straight to our Los Porticos Villas parking area.
