I understand there are several ferries operating between Hondouras and Belize, however cannot establish if they're soley passenger ferries or have the capacity to transport bikes. Can anyone shed any light?
They are lancha services, water taxis for walk-on passengers although some motorcyclists have wrestled bikes on board if space and assistants were available. Leaving Pto.Cortes for Dangriga.
Considering the bother ,why not just ride from HN to BZ through GT ? There is now an excellent paved road from Pto.Cortes to Corinto border crossing .For GT customs formalities you will have to go to the SAT office in Puerto Barrios GT, right on the waterfront at end of Ca.9 downtown. Do not believe the aduana fellow at the roadside checkpoint near Entre Rios who may try to tell you as he told me three weeks ago that you need to leave your bike there while you do the paperwork in the SAT office in Pto .Barrios. Ride there.
There are 2 or 3 lanchas in each direction each day from Punta Gorda to Puerto Barrios, and all will put a bike or 2 in the boat if they don`t have too many passengers. My brother and i paid BZD100 (USD50) per bike, plus normal fee for ourselves on the 4pm boat from Punta Gorda. Most people wanted to go in that direction on the 11am and 2pm boats, and so the guy operating the 2pm boat wanted BZD150. Takes about an hour.
Strangely the exit tax per person was only BZD6, whereas at the other borders the border staff and other travellers said it was BZD40. The customs girl there simply did an exit stamp for the bikes, and once back in Guatemala we presented ourselves to immigration in a nearby street, but didn`t worry about finding the customs building for bikes. And upon exiting Guatemala i just pretended i didn`t understand the SAT/customs guy and told him "cheers mate" and we rode off. He didn`t seem to care that much anyway.
We were already in the south of Belize after attempting to cross illegally into Guatemala via the SW corner of Belize, but after spending hours crossing the river with steep muddy banks and along horse tracks etc we met a lot of military! So that way isn`t possible, even on the walking track.
Your info is most appreciated. Think we may ride up to Puerto Barrios (Guatemala) in a couple of days and try to put the bike on a boat to Punta Gorda (Belize). If any one else has any experience with this route, the more info the merrier!
