#325681 - 02/28/09 03:24 AM Cruise Ship - Belize to San Pedro
canukgirl Offline

I have family coming on a cruise ship for one day only - arriving in Bze city at 8am leaving at 5pm. My question - is this enough time to come over to San Pedro for the day? If it is, how would you suggest they do it? Apparently the boat "docks" at the water taxi - how far of a cab is that to municipal airport to fly here.

Also, second part to the question, if they can't make it over here - what can i show them in bze city for an entire day?!?!?!

My wife and I went to Belize for the first time on a cruise ship. We had the same amount of time, 8=5,. We made arrangements on the ship to go to San Pedro, (getting off the cruise ship on a early tender is the problem) as it turned out, because of rough seas and a front moving in , out excursion was canceled. After a heated discussion with the Purser, we boarded a tender...snokel gear in hand...
Upon arriving on shore, not sure what to do,,,
A local young man offered to take us on a snokel trip to corral caye, we stated we wanted to get to San Pedro and Shark-Ray alley...He said we would have to fly...It was what we did...We were taken to Municipal Airport, boarded a flight to San Pedro. Spent the day, snokeled, and had ceviche at Lilly's...Caught the 3:30 (I think) flight back...
So the only thing is getting off an early tender.
Hope it works out..
Be cool, Be careful and God Bless

Depends which ship: Norwegian starts tendering at around 8.30 which means if they get a 1st tender ticket and arrive on the dock at 8.50 there is time to run next door and get the 9.00am San Pedro Water Taxi for a $20us round trip ticket, arriving at around 10.20

They will have to be on the 3.30 back for the last tender to the ship at 5.00pm so around 5 hours in San Pedro, plenty of time to get a little local flavor

Have them take the flight. The boat trip will take two hours off their SP time.

The 9.30 from municipal arrives @ 9.55, and the flight back in order to get the last tender @ 5.00 is the 3.30 on Tropic, same as the ferry, or the 4.00 on Maya.

Savings of 25-55 minutes and a cost of $47us per person more, plus cabs to and from municipal.

Thanks, yes they would have to take the airplane as my grandma is coming and at 86, i don't think the boat would be great for her back.

How long is the taxi ride from the boat to the municipal airport in bze city?

Maybe 20 minutes....just be sure to have them hustle up and get on the first tender boat off the cruise ship.
