Anyone else stayed at Ruby's before? How was it? We're going in a week and a half. Also, what's the best way to get from the airport in Belize City to Ambergris Caye? Is the water taxi easy b/c I like the price! The flights seem way expensive.

Thanks!

I'm not chastising you for not having done this, just trying to offer some help. If you use the search function on this page there are 14 topics having to do with Ruby's (this is subject line only search, far more if you search message body as well.)

Ruby's is just fine. Very basic, clean, right in the center of town. Draws the backpacker crowd at times and others that are looking for a good value. Expect no frills. Good cafe.

I have taken both the water taxi and flights from Belize City. These days I opt for the flight. Much quicker and after a long day of travel from New England, the last thing I want to do is crowd into a boat for an hour and 15 minute ride.

Thanks! I'm new and didn't know about the search. Very helpful. Sounds like Ruby's will have just what we need. A clean room on the beach with good, cheap eats close by. I just want to enjoy the sunshine and forget about work.

the water ferry is cheap, only around $15 US, BUT you have to take a taxi to the water ferry from the Belize Int Airport, which is another $15 totaling $30. It is only $50 to take a plane to San Pedro, and BOY is the view amazing, beautiful, spectacular... and 15 minutes. smile

ke, round-trip is more like $100 to fly from BZE to SP. Last month the taxi to the water taxi was $20 (not $15) and the water taxi ride was a bit more than that, if I'm not mistaken... so prices have gone up a bit.

Look, MS. TRAVELQUEEN:

I stated to GET to san pedro, it is $50...and my prices for the ferry were to GET to san pedro. You stated it is $100 roundtrip to fly. geez. lets see...if one would want to get BACK, which they probably do, you'd need to figure $50 to return, so either way....what you wrote is exactly the same as what I wrote. think about this, I stated to GET to san pedro. And, if my taxi and ferry costs were one way, you'd think the flight was too! so, $50+$50=$100. soy un genio!
AND, I JUST was there 3 weeks ago, once again, and my TAXI WAS $15... you should know for someone touristy who isn't good with traveling, it could cost more, but being that you are a travel queen, you'd think you would have gotten the taxi for $15, too. Look, I am not trying to be rude here, but there is just no need to be so grouchy when talking to people here.

Relax Everyone.....

The watertaxis are normally ($15us/$30bz)one way.
There has been a special for (10us/$20bz)one way.

The taxi from International to the Belize City watertaxi is usually ($20us/$40bz), but I think they add for over 2 people.

For four people you can save some money but lose island vacation time. Less than four, take the plane. The view is worth it.
