Hummingbird Highway in Belize

The Hummingbird Highway in Belize (86.4 km, 53.7 miles) is a scenic route that takes you from Belmopan to Dangriga.

It is partially built on the former Stann Creek Railway. This road was formerly in a very bad condition, but it has now been fully paved and has an excellent road condition. Don’t expect to be able to get gas in between Belmopan and Dangriga
 
Belize’s citrus industry heavily relies on this highway to get the goods to the processing plants in the Stann Creek district. The eco-tourism in Belize also relies on this road, and the eco tourists have contributed to an increase in road traffic on this highway. The Hummingbird Highway is the only highway that cuts through the mountains.


Most bridges are multiple lanes, yet there are still several one-lane bridges over numerous creeks and streams. This road takes you to sites of the Blue Hole National Park of Belize and the Five Blues National Park.
