Follow the George Price Highway to the Belmopan junction, and make a left onto the Hummingbird Highway (towards Dangriga & Punta Gorda). This is a good time for a rest stop.

Turn right and take the road through the village until you get to the resort area. Villa Verano is on the left hand side (about two miles).
