Getting to Ambergris Caye from Belize City Reviews
Quick Hop to the Caye Oct 03, 2005
Upon arrival in Belize City, you have two options for transportation if you final destination involves the Cayes. There are water taxis that run from the mainland over to Ambergris but I've been told it can take 1 1/2 hours sometimes. There are two airlines, Tropic Air and Mayan, both of which offer flights to Caye Caulker and the San Pedro airstrip in Ambergris.
I've only flown Tropic so I cannot speak about Mayan but Tropic Air's service is great, they offer flights hourly and it's only a 15 minute trip! RT airfare for 1 adult is currently $109. Obviously, the water taxi service cost less but is more time consuming. For me, I am there and anxious to start vacation - I do not want to take the ferry service back and forth.
Ask your hotel when booking a room as some are willing and able to set up your transportation to and from the Caye.
One cool tip is you can hold out for the co pilot's seat on Tropic, but I've learned you have to be pretty darn tall to see over the controls! :-)
