Once you’re in Belize City, there are 3 ways to travel to our resort.

1. Fly— 45 minutes + 15 minute complimentary shuttle we provide

2. Drive— 3 hours

3. Bus— 5 hours minimum


We recommend that our guests take a carefree flight from Belize International Airport to Placencia and then sit back while we shuttle you to the resort. The scenic flight along the Belize coast, provided by two local airlines, takes less than an hour. When you land, our shuttle will be waiting to whisk you up the shoreline to the Green Parrot.


As agents, we’ll be happy to arrange your flights between Belize City (BZE) and Placencia via Maya Island Air or Tropic Air.


Note: You must arrive in Belize City by 3:30 pm to make one of the hourly connecting flights to Placencia.


Should you decide to arrive via car, we’ll provide complete driving instructions from Belize International Airport to the Green Parrot. We’ll include a couple of interesting stops along the way, so know that “3 hours” means straight-through driving time. We recommend you follow our suggested route. Others may be unpaved with no services.


Rental car services are available at the Belize airport and include Avis, Budget, Thrifty and Hertz. You can also do rentals in Placencia.

Allow plenty of time if you plan to take a bus from Belize City to Placencia. Here’s one bus company’s bus schedule. If you ask, the driver will stop for you at the Green Parrot. Back in Belize City, you’ll need to arrange transport between the city and airport. Taxi service is available for the 30 minute, 10 mile drive. (bus service is known to be unreliable)


Once your reservations are secured, we’ll send you travel information with more details.  However you decide to come to Belize and stay with us at the Green Parrot Beach Houses and Resort, enjoy the ride.
