Western Highway in Belize

The Western Highway in Belize connects Belize City with Hattieville, Belize Zoo, Belmopan, San Ignacio, Santa Elena and terminates at the Guatemalan border at Benque Viejo del Carmen.


This highway is 124.3 km (77.2 miles) long, fully paved and in a good condition. Note however that the road conditions on the Western Highway quickly deteriorate after rain, as the limestone surface can become slippery when wet. The petrol availability is good. 
 
The highway is renamed some years ago to one of the important politicians of Belize, George Price. So the highway is also called George Price Highway, but also the name Western Highway is still used. 
 
You can access the Xunantunich archeological site via this highway.
