    Yes, you can do that, or just take the bus. Belmopan (not Belmapon) is about an hour ride from Belize City, and there is a bus on the hour every hour between the two. (hour and a half in a bus....)

    A taxi in Belmopan, - will take you anywhere in town for around five bucks (US$5.00 or ten BZ dollars)

    You are talking about a taxi to Belmopan and then have him wait to take you back, - correct? You should negotiate a fare before you go. US50-75.00 will get you there, plus waiting and a trip back. I would simply take a taxi there and then take one back when done. Cheaper and easier. Belmopan may be the smallest capital in the world, but it does have a lot of capital amenities, including plenty of transport.

    Remember that taxis are often unidentifiable so note the taxi cab's green licence plate.

    Frankly you may just want to rent a car for that short time and it will likely cost less.

    I too would recommend just renting a car. It will probably be cheaper and it is a fairly easy drive.
