A friend of ine went from Pto Barrios to Punta Gorda with a big GS. It wasn't a 'ferry' boat, but the bike was taken and loaded by hand.
I would ask at the docks.

ferry Belize to Guatemala

From Punta Gorda there is a direct connection to Pto.Barrios by passenger ( bus style) launch which will be hard work loading a bike on .AQnother poster a few weeks ago mentioned that if you call ahead with a request they will send a larger launch ,probably at more cost. A launch also comes from Livingston GT a few times per week.
From Livingston to Pto.Barrios there is a regular freight barge service which hauls cars, small trucks and all the stuff needed in Livingston. Upriver from Livingston it is small passenger launches to Rio Dulce and you may , maybe, , find one able to carry a bike.

Question why take the ferry?

We are currently in Mexico and plan to get into Guatamala from Belize in a couple of weeks, but plan to do so by road. Was just wandering why taking the ferry? are we missing something...?

It might be convenient if you're exploring southern Belice and want to jump to GT. Also, it might provide a fun adventure.

There's pilsner and there's lager..... Aren't choices great....
