At approximately a mile you will turn northwest onto the Western Highway (Cemetery Road) – the road will trend southwesterly through Hattieville and west to the turn off to Belmopan, and on to the twin cities of Santa Elena and San Ignacio.

Turn right at Savannah Street and continue to your left around the park, turning left onto Double Street. Turn right on Bullet Tree Road and continue approximately 1.3 miles.

For the first, and shorter way, exit the airport and turn north (actually northwest) on the northern Highway.
