Getting Here

Getting to Hamanasi is easiest if you fly to the Dangriga Airstrip from the international airport.  The flight is approximately 20 minutes.  From there we can meet and transfer you to Hamanasi.  The drive is approximately 40 minutes.  There are a variety of airlines that service Belize.

Airlines flying to Belize International Airport (BZE):

  • American Airlines via Dallas and Miami
  • Continental Airlines via Houston and Newark
  • Delta Air Lines via Atlanta
  • Tikal Jets via Guatemala City and Flores
  • TACA via San Salvador
  • US Airways via Charlotte

From Belize International Airport you can connect to Dangriga on Maya Island Air or Tropic Air.  The flight is approximately 20 minutes, typically in a 14-passenger plane.  Technically there is a weight restriction on these domestic flights of 40 pounds per bag.  Most of our guests’ luggage weighs more than that.  If there are weight or space restrictions on your flight your luggage will be sent on the next available flight, which could be the following day.  Please be sure to take any valuables and medications in the cabin with you.  During the flight you'll have great views of the countryside, so keep your camera handy!

While it is easiest to get to Hamanasi if you fly, some guests choose to drive. Please be aware of poor signage, unmarked one lane bridges and slippery conditions.  Please make sure that you bring your driver's license.  We strongly recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle that is insured.  Please avoid driving at night.
