We are arriving mid-Feb and planning to water taxi to AC. How do you get from the airport to the harbour - figure taxi but doe anyone know how much?

Also, read somewhere that ATM's only use Belize issued cards - is this still true?

There are no buses from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA). A taxi to Belize City costs BZ$50.00, and takes just under 30 minutes. Before exiting the airport, try to find another person to share a taxi and split the cost.

Another option is to walk or taxi from the airport to the Northern highway (about 2.5 km) and wait for a bus. As you approach the intersection with the highway, Belize City will be to your right so just wait on the side of the highway. When you see a bus coming, wave your arm up and down to get it to stop; Express buses will not stop. If youíre going to Belize City, the bus will terminate at the bus terminal. You then have to taxi or walk to the water taxi terminal.

Gasoline prices have just been increased to about BZ$9.00 per gallon -- don't be surprised if there's an increase in the taxi fare.

ATMs have accepted my card which was not issued in Belize.

I would highly recommend taking the plane from the airport to AC. It is much quicker and, I believe much more comfortable. Yes, it is more expensive but once you figure taxi fare and tip it really isn't that much more.
