Guests will fly into Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) in Belize City, which is approximately 115 miles north of Placencia, where SBRV is located. You then have the option to travel to Placencia by air or ground.
The flight from BZE to PLJ (Placencia Airport) is about 30-minutes by way of one of two local airlines, Tropic Air Belize or Maya Island Air. Your personal host will be at the airport to greet you and will drive you to your villa, about 15 minutes away.
Cost: Sirenian Bay Resort & Villas is an official agent of Tropic Air Belize. We will be happy to book your Belize flight for you for a flat fee of $275 round-trip or $150 one-way, per person (includes a convenience fee). Many of our guests drive one way and fly the other for cost savings and to experience the difference in scenic views.
If you choose to let us book for you, we will need the first and last name and date of birth for each guest in your group (as noted on their passport).
You can also book your own Belize flights via Tropic Air or Maya Island Air. Both local airlines offer regular flights between Belize City and Placencia. If you choose to fly to Placencia, your onsite host will pick you up at the Placencia airport at no cost and bring you to your villa.
We do ask that you provide us with all of your domestic and Belize flight information at least 2 weeks in advance of your arrival. This allows us ample time to add your information to our schedule and lets your local host monitor your flights to ensure we are there when you arrive.
The drive from Belize City to Placencia is approximately 3.5 hours, with stops (depending on your arrival time).
Ground Transportation Cost: This is the most cost-effective travel option for groups traveling from Belize City to Sirenian Bay. We offer one-way ground transportation from BZE to the Resort for a flat fee of $300 or round-trip for $550 (for your entire group).
If you choose our ground transportation shuttle service, one of our staff (easily identifiable by our logo on the van and their uniform) will meet your group at BZE and bring you to the Resort in one of our well-maintained vans. Our vans are serviced regularly so maintenance issues during the drive are very unlikely. Should anything occur, our drivers are more than prepared to handle these types of situations. Depending on the size of your group, we may also bring another vehicle to carry luggage (no extra charge).
Please Note: We do not recommend renting a car and driving yourself, unless you are familiar with driving in foreign countries. The road conditions and navigational signs are not what most travelers are accustomed to!
