We have booked our flights to get us to Belize...hooray!!! Taking advice here we did find that flying into Cancun is SO much cheaper, plus it lets us at least experience a little bit of Mexico!

We plan to take the bus from Cancun to Chetumal - but are just trying to piece together the rest of our journey from there. It appears our options are either:
1) to take the new water taxi from Chetamul to San Pedro at the approx cost of $40 each one way;
2) or we can get a transfer from Chetamul to Belize with 'Get Transfers' for $40 but then we need to make the journey out to San Pedro. He can drop us at "corozal air strip or the water taxi".

Can anyone just enlighten me as to the costs and options for this final leg of our journey if we opt for option 2?

Also can anyone advise what is the usual mode of transport once we arrive in San Pedro in terms of getting to whatever will be our chosen accommodation?

The flight from Corozal to San Pedro is US$47.50 one way, US$90.50 round trip.

I don't see the cost on the Thunderbolt Water Taxi website, but it only leaves at 7am and 3 pm.

How you get to where you're staying in San Pedro, depends on where you're staying. If you fly on Tropic and are staying right in town, it's possible to walk. South of town a regular cab. North of town many places provide transportation, or a cab to the water taxi dock, then a boat ride.

have done the over the border to corozol with flight on tropic and maya the last two trips. pretty painless. I would try this unless the chetumal water taxi is operating that day and fits your time line. the one problem you may face either way is depending on when your international flight gets in, you may not make the 3 pm water taxi from chetumal or the last (530 ish) flight from corozal... depends on the bus schedule. This would leave you o/n in chetumal or corozal. We arrived at noon and took a chartered van which left right away and made it but this was before mexico went away from daylight savings which left us an extra hour.
