Transfer service is a good choice.

Your other options are: flight, car rental, bus and taxi. I think transfer service is the best choice.

Thanks for the quick response. Is the bus a reasonable option? Any idea what the cost?

If you want to go by bus, first get a taxi from the airport to the bus terminal in BC. That costs BZ$50 per taxi, and with 6 people you might need 2 taxis unless you can get a taxi van. That trip is about 20 minutes.

Buses that go directly to Placencia are not frequent. You can view bus schedules & information on these websites...

You might have to change buses. Overall fare is about BZ$20 (US$10) per person.

Note that the James Bus Line buses go to Independence, not Placencia, and you have to get a small ferry called the Hokey Pokey from Independence to Placencia.

While cheap, the bus might be too much of a hassle, and they are old school buses, so not very comfortable for a trip of about 4 hours.
