How much hassle is it to use the ferry from Belize City to Ambergris Caye after arriving at the airport? any information will be appreciated. We aren't traveling until June.

Raj, flight is like $109 USD (per person/round trip) and takes 20 mins. The boat is a $20-25 cab ride over to the boat dock and the trip is around $17 USD (per person/round trip) and is aprox 1 1/2 hours depending on the stops. Can sometimes be bumpy. Then don't forget the $20-25 to get back to the airport.

I suggest, depending on how long you'll be down, to either take the boat one way, the flight the other way or just the flight.

How many people in your party? How long will you be down?

Raj, some people suggest taking a taxi from the airport over to Municipal airport and go to AC from there (cheaper flight) but not sure if it would save much money...

We generally tell people to take the flight over to San Pedro, and then take the water taxi back if they want....less hassle, less tired, (usually having flown all day, adding another three hours and several luggage transfers later) it is much easier. Local airline employees will help you with bags from the time you get through immigration.....nothing for you to do but get on the plane, and pick up your bags in SP.

Yep, and have a few Belikins or rum punches at Jet's while waiting for your Tropic or Maya flight.

OK, now I have more of a "plan". Probably fly on arrival and then depending on weather, mood etc decide on how to get back later.

For me, the TropicAir flight is one of the highlights in the journey. Seeing the Caribbean from the air, and the anticipation of what awaits in San Pedro makes me giddy!!
