Flying in from Florida and would like to go direct to Ambergris Airport and need to know if they have customs there? Also need latitude's and longitude's for the airport can't find in any flight planning software. Any info appreciated especially from anyone who has done it, we fly to Cozumel a lot and are very familiar with Mexican procedures, thanks!

You'll have to fly into BZE to clear customs. Contact BAA for landing info and clearance
011 501 255 2045 or 3393, 4089

What are you flying Max? You may be able to arrange customs clearance through SP police or local customs agent. But you can't land a jet aircraft at the SP airstrip if that's what you're flying.

Yes, one can (maybe not "YOU"). Seen it done personally, and without much fuss.

Sounds dubious. You need L&L from a message board?

Thanks for the info, we fly a Beech Baron getting in to the airport is no problem. We will try to do some more research, but usually if customs are present and you can arrive by boat, they might go to the airport.

The customs office is 50 yards from the airport. However, I'm a bit inclined to agree with Pedro. When we checked in on the same thing we were told that customs were to be cleared at BZE.

A Baron would no trouble. We have some connections to a LearI, and it's a bit iffy coming and going. Not worth it.

I personally arranged in advance with the local customs office to have my guests (US citizens) cleared in SP, they came in via private transport. It was no trouble or fuss, really.
