Getting to Succotz
Most tourists arrive to San Jose Succotz via chartered bus, often on day-long treks hosted by cruise ship and other tour companies that dock in Belize City, 75 miles to the east. Some buses terminate in Succotz and ferry tourists back to Belize City after a quick jaunt to the Xunantunich ruins, while others continue onward into Guatemala to visit Tikal. Local bus service and taxis also stop directly in front of the Riverside Shops on the Western Highway, making it a popular and easily accessible destination. The Riverside Shops are located at the Xunantunich ferry crossing and are open daily from morning until dusk.
