What Are Belize's Border Crossings Like?

Border towns in Belize have a somewhat sleazy reputation – these are areas where tourists are especially likely to be targeted for scams. Exercise caution and common sense, and make sure to only cross the border during the day. Keep in mind that it costs $15 USD to exit Belize.

The border crossing with Guatemala is at Melchor de Mencos. Melchor de Mencos is a bustling town with lots of bars and marketplaces.

Chetumal is the Belizean city closest to the border with Mexico. Before you enter Mexico, you will fill out a form called the Forma Migratoria Múltiple (FMM).
