Hi All,

Long time lurker, first time poster.

My soon-to-be-wife and I are coming down to Belize in mid October for 9 days and we just can't wait. After a lot of research we decided to stay 3 days in Hamanasi and the rest at Xanadu. I've got most everything figured out, but I still have a few questions:

1- We're flying TACA in from Houston, and the flight arrives at 4:40pm. We have to fly down to Dangriga to get to Hamanasi, but the last remaining flights at that time are Tropic at 5:00pm and Maya at 5:10pm. Is 20 - 30 mins sufficient to get to our next flight?

2- Dangriga to Hamanasi - Hamanasi is asking $55 each way to get down there and there a cheaper option?

3- Do we need wetsuits for diving?

That's about it - thanks for your help!

I would say book the Maya flight at 5:10 and hope for the best. You should make it if all goes well. Try to get off the plane as fast as possible and do only carry on luggage if possible. Otherwise pack some essentials in your carry on cause you may make the flight but your main luggage may not get there till the next day.

probably no cheaper options than the $55 transfer to Hamanasi. It's about a 45 min drive.

Can't help you with the wet suit "?"

Might be cutting it close on the flight to Dangriga. Plan on at least a shorty for diving even though the water is fairly warm. Diving saps the warmth from your core and a wetsuit provides some thermal protection as well as protection from unseen cirmcumstances as a possible brush against coral or a jellyfish
