Get to know Chetumal (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Chetumal.

Chetumal is the gateway town on the Mexican side of the Mexican-Belize border. Most people use this as a place to transport from one place to the next, as there are not very many attractions in Chetumal itself. The major things to do there are the botanical gardens and the manatee sanctuary. They also have a local museum, which is worth a look; if you are interested in this, you can obtain information from your Chetumal hostel staff about where it is and how much it will cost. The people here in Chetumal are friendly, so they can also help you out with directions if you need them.

From Chetumal to enter Belize, you can take multiple different companies, which have boats to multiple destinations within Belize such as Caye Caulker, San Pedro, and Belize City. From the bus station in Chetumal, or any of the Chetumal hostels, you will need to take a cab to get to where the ferries depart.

Another traveler tip for Chetumal is that some of the ATMs here allow you to withdraw cash in U.S. dollars, so if this is something that you need, it is a good place to stock up on a spare cash supply and get dollars for use in Belize.

Hostels in Chetumal are in scattered locations across the city. You will find that most of the hostels are not within walking distance of any of the transportation that can bring you into Chetumal, so make sure that you check out how much fares are for taxis and local collectivos so that you don't get ripped off.
