1. The most common way to get around is a golf cart. In town you can rent a golf cart per day or per hour. If you keep it under three hours then renting by the hour will always be cheaper. In town they rented per day for $85. Our resort rented for the day $55 and $15 per hour. So, always check where the rates at the place you are staying they will probably be cheaper than in town! (*prices in US, the exchange rate is $2belize=$1US)
However, while the streets in town are not bad side streets can be pretty rough (for example the 4 mile trip back to our resort!) There can be a lot of potholes especially in the rainy season not to mention mosquitos!
2. Riding a bike is another common form of transport, you can rent them in town (and likely you can rent them thru your hotel also) Our place had them I don't know the price we were there to be lazy afterall! I do know it is way less than a golf cart though ;)
3. Water taxi, 2 types the island ferry which pass by every 2 hours in the daytime and hourly after 4pm. All the way thru midnight on weekdays and well into the wee hours on weekends. Special arrangements need to be made for other times. The cost of the ferry is $8 per person or 16 belize dollars.
the other is a private water taxi. They cost only $5 US or $10 blz. per person, they will come for you at any time. The only catch to this one is that it needs to be a minimum of 4 persons traveling!
4. The cheapest way of course is to walk! There are only 3 major streets in the town afterall :D If you stay in town this can save you a great deal of money, but then again there's those darn mosquitos!
