Hello...I am a first time poster to this message board, but have used other message boards to help plan trips to other locals in the Caribbean - such as the BVIs.

I have searched the site and really could not find any information that really answers the following question:

confused My wife and I are staying in one of the Caye villas just north of Journey’s End. We are planning a day trip to Tikal. It appears as if the flights leave AC at 7:00am, but that the Island ferry does not run early enough to pick us up at our pier and get us to the airport in time.

I did read about ‘private water taxis’, but am not clear if we could contract with them for such an early departure.

So:

1. are there water taxis available that would pick us up early enough to get us to the San Pedro airport for a 7:00am departure?

2. What time would you say we should get picked up for a 7:00am departure?

3. Any recommendations on any water taxis for this purpose?


I read a recent post with suggestions about perhaps staying over in Tikal at the end of our trip, but this is not an option for us. We’ll need to take a trip one day during the middle of our stay.

Thanks for any help.

The management company for Caye Villas will help you with all of these arrangements.
Yes, you can get an early morning water-taxi and make it to this plane on time - Armando carries his cel-phone and is generally the taxi-man that serves Caye Villas. He will most likely be the person who meets you at the airstrip and takes you to the villa.
I'd schedule a 6:15 water-taxi pick-up; and I'd also reconfirm the night before and make another early morning call to be sure there are no glitches (weather, etc. can cause last minute events). Armando's number - 610-1448.
