If I arrive in Belize city at 4:45pm, is my only option to get a room in belize city or teh night?
I hear water taxis end at 4:30.
I am already paying $1,300 airfare from edmonton, in 1 day but arrive at 4:45. Really didn't want to buy another flight to island. If I do fy, what time is the last flight and how much are they?

Does anyone know of a decent room in Belize city for around $20.00?

The last flight leaves Belize International fo San Pedro at 17:40 almost an hour after you arrive, you should make it. The flights are $57 US one way or you can pay for a return flight for $109.

It will cost you $25 to get into the city and $10 for the water taxi. Add that to the $20 that you're willing to pay for a room and you've paid for your flight out of BZE.

In a nut shell, fly to the island from international air port where you will be arriving. nothing else makes sense.
It will be obvious to you when you pick up your baggage where to go, catch the tropic flight to the island ,just follow the crowd.
Its a quick and easy flight and best way.

&nbsp bram,
it'll be good to see you on the island. Your best bet is flying to San Pedro Town, especially if you're solo. I take the water taxi often, because I enjoy the trip. If you are feeling up to it, I recommend you try the water taxi when you have the time. On your way out to the island, take the plane for your first trip. You don't have a lot of time since your flight into Belize is scheduled for 4:45, and you will want to get your holiday started.

Definately fly like they all get in after the last water taxi but have plenty of time to catch the flights.

Hi there Bram,

No one seems to have addressed the issue of your first nights hotel cost: is it already paid for on San Pedro as part of your trip, or are you buying the first night wherever you decide to stay?

It will cost you $25 us for a cab downtown, then $10 us in the morning for the water taxi, so about a $20 “saving”.

What is your room rate in San Pedro? The Belcove, is right by the swing bridge, is $27.50 a night for a budget room, and they do a $20 airport pick up, but if you want to do anything other than stay in your room and relax after the trip, downtown Belize City may not be the experience that you are looking for!!

If I'd just spent $1300 lunies on a flight, I'd get to Sun Up for a combo fried rice ASAP, and forget about trying to save $20!!

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......

I believe the water tazi is running $15 US one way, these days. Also, both Tropic and Maya Air will give you a discount if you ask and pay cash at the counter.

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