Truelover said about the cheaper tickets to Mexico compared with the more expensive tickets to Belize:
"The answer is the costs are offset by the Mexican Tourism. That's why they make it a hassle comming from Cancun to Belize. By offsetting the airline cost they get more tourism dollars on total.
TrueLover, can you please explain in detail about the "hassle" the Mexican authorities put one through in trying to come from Mexico to Belize?
Also, is it against the law to just pay a boat driver to take you from the southern tip of Yucatan, Mexico to Northern Ambergris Caye if your destination is Northern A.C.?
Thanks for feedback from anyone who can answer these accurately,
