How to Get There

To Belize City, Dangriga, Sittee River and River House Lodge

Usually on the trip home but it makes for a nice evening out for supper and maybe depending on the flight home some shopping. From Belize City International Airport you can catch a small plane through or to Dangriga. From Dangriga a ride can be arranged through the Lodge. It is about a 30 min ride to the Lodge.

Another option is to take a flight to Cancun, Mexico. From there it’s easy to catch a bus to Chetumal, then on to Belize City.  From Belize City you can reach any bigger town in Belize by bus or small plane.

How to get to River House Lodge BelizeIf you choose to take the bus take from Belize City on the one heading South to Dangriga/Placencia. Once in Dangriga taxi to River House Lodge on the Sittee River, or a ride can be arranged.

But if you are driving down or flying into Belize City and renting a car it is very easy to get around in Belize. You will take the Western Highway to Belmopan and from there you will take the Hummingbird Highway South East. This is a beautiful drive through the Maya Mountains, citrus plantations and the Blue Hole National Park is a beautiful place to stop to break up the drive. You will continue on this route until you come to the Junction for the Southern Highway. You will pass through a town called Silk Grass then continuing on to the Sittee River turn off (second road into Hopkins). Follow this road through the Village of Sittee River until you come to a T then turn right and follow about a mile further till you see the River House Lodge sign.

Whatever your route you will be greeted warmly when reaching your
destination of the Lodge.
