Cost of taxi from San Ignacio to Belize/Guatemala border?

Does anyone know the current approximate cost for this service?

I've also that the trip takes 15-45 min -- any more accurate estimate or does it just depend on traffic?

Thanks!

San Ignacio to the border takes around 20 minutes. 15 if the driver's in a hurry, 45 if the driver is...lost. It's well under 10 miles, so traffic doesn't play a part. A Benque taxi would probably be around $5bz per person. Other taxis would be thrice that, or more, depending on how much they think you'll pay. Taking a Benque taxi from SI would actually be cheaper than taking the bus to Benque, and then taking the taxi the last couple of miles.

It's very easy to get through the borders, and there are 2 of them. You pay an exit fee when leaving Belize($37.50bz).
