Thanks to all for the suggestions for flying from western Canada. I did manage to find a flight from Edmonton through calgary to Houston and a connector flight from Taca(?)airlines to belize city to arrive at 5pm the same day.

Has anyone had any experience with the Taca flight?
Does arriving at 5pm to belize city put me in too late for a water taxi or ferri?

Great news!

Take the puddle jumper flight. Won't cost you more than staying overnight in Belize City. Make a reservation on the last flight of the day.

Bram, how much was your flight(s), all in? How long do you have to get your bags at Houston and see that they are transferred onto TACA, and then get to your gate?

I fly Taca out of California all the time and love it. (Drinks are free! wink ) You will be too late for the water taxi but not the flight on Maya Air or Tropic, which will run you about $55 US one way.


I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?

Its not cheap. Including taxes $1,419.65.
I will have 1.5 hours in Houston to connect to Taca.

I know Houston is a big airport, does this sound possible?

Houston is easy to navigate I have found. Should not be a problem.

Geez Bram!! Did you tell us what dates you're going?? Seems to me, that's really quite high unless it is Xmas.

The range that we have to pay to Belize is anywhere from $950.00 to $1500.00. Depending on if we hit a seat sale or not. The cheapest ticket, as of this morning, (a mid November flight or a mid February flight)from Toronto is $1056.00 and they all involve an overnight each way if you are going to Toronto from the west. US Air has had seat sales as low as $450.00 Toronto to Belize but I haven't seen that price for at least 4 years. Our flight in February is $1150.00 and we get there in 1 day and back in 1 day. We start out on a flight at 6 and get to Belize at 16:40.

I guess I have no Gripe with a fare of $671. Charleston S.C. to Charlotte N.C. then direct to Belize City from Charlotte. With those kind of prices from Canada I would be a very Infrequent visitor to the Island I love.
