When it is time to go home frown how much time do I have to allow myself at the San Pedro airstrip before the Tropic air flight to BZE airport? And for that matter at BZE? I know here in the states they say 1 1/2 to 2 hours, I am just wondering how that goes in Belize?

To be safe, I would allow 30 minutes at SPR and 1:45 minimum at BZE. My wfe and I only allowed 1:15 at BZE and it was too close for comfort.

I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

If you have a reservation on Tropic to go back to international in Belize City 15 minutes is adequate. However, if you are coming down from the north you MUST allow for as much as an hours delay at the pull ferry. At the international they insist on 2 hours and people have been refused check in if they cut it less. Better be safe than sorry as you can't just 'hop on' the next flight out.
Check in and go through security and browse the gift shops inside - I found the best buys in there.
If you want to eat, check in but do not pass through security and walk (no elevator) upstairs to the restaurant upstairs. Decent food, good service and no gouging on the prices.

Thanks Scuba Ldy. Do I have to figure in the hour on the pull fairy if I am taking the island ferry from my resort dock? Or if that doesn't fit into my time table a water taxi? I really can't see us dragging our luggage the 5 miles down the beach to the pull ferry!

Be careful what you wish for! I don't want to go anywhere with a fairy!

Definetly need a good hour and a half-two hours at BZE!! It can take a while to get everything taken care of there.

Thanks all. Just to be safe I am going to give myself 30 minutes in SP and 2 hours in BZE. I would rather be safe than sorry...I am not going to want to go home anyway so no matter what time it is it is going to stink.
