Getting Around Belize

Belize is considered a small country and is less than 200 miles long and 75 miles wide at its widest point.  Getting around Belize can take much longer than you expect depending on your point of departure, the traffic and the weather.  According to Lan Sluder in his book "Living Abroad in Belize" here is a list of mileage distances and typical driving times it takes approximately to get around Belize.
