      Transportation around the country

      by dustmon Online Now Apr 6, 2012 at 5:01 AM

      We want to go to Belize either October or November, wanting to start by flying into Belize International Airport, then we want to go to Placencia for 3 nights, and then to the mountains (Five Sisters Lodge) for 3-4 nights, then back to the airport for our flight home. We may just veg at the beach not really needing a car, and the Lodge has tours with transportation included. What are our options with approximate costs for getting from the airport to Placencia, then to Five Sisters, and then back to the airport?
      I did look up Tropic Air from Belize City to Placencia at89 per person, sounds pretty good.....
      Specifically is Caracol worth a trip from the Lodge?
      Thanx in advance.....
