The port of Big Creek is an official port of entry. It is located just west of Placencia, or 80 miles south of Belize City. It is about a three hour drive from Belize City. Only a handful of people reside in Big Creek itself.
Big Creek is a sheltered, deep draft port of 6.5 meters and has berthing for a number of large vessels. It is used primarily by tankers taking out crude oil, cargo vessels and barges in the banana and citrus industry. It is Belize’s most desolate port. There is absolutely nothing else located at the port of Big Creek except for the port itself, offices for BAHA (Belize Agriculture Health Authority) immigration, customs and port authority. No hotel, no stores, no bars, no community, only a handful of persons living here.
The nearest village is in Independence/Mango Creek which is about a 15 minute drive and in Independence you can find small stores, small hotels and bars.
Big Creek has Customs, Immigration, Belize Port Authority and the Quarantine official for BAHA (Belize Agriculture and Health Authority) department. The offices of all four departments are located just outside the gate of the Big Creek Port compound. There is no Health official available. You will find the officials here very helpful. --
