ok a few questions on the water taxis. The girls and I are having a "tiff" over water taxi from belize city vs puddle jumper. I personally want to take the taxi because I think it would be a scenic route. Girls want "faster" I guess.

1. which is better...caye caulker taxi or triple J?

2. Where is the Texaco pier?

3 Is that the pier that both leave you at?

4. Why such a difference in price? caye caulker is 40 rt and triple j is 20 rt?

What do you think.

The airplane is 100 times more scenic than a boat - - aerial views of the cayes, the sea, the reef --- it's awesome.

Take the water taxi over and fly back - then you can decide for yourself. No better way to shed the world then the boat to SP. Grab a couple of Belikins and kick back and enjoy the ride!

How about this: If the weather is good when you arrive, take the water taxi one way. If weather is bad when you arrive, Take di plane one way and visa versa. The Texaco dock is only about 1/8 mile north of where the Caye Caulker water taxi drops you off (Tackle box dock), easy walking distance for sure. We have never taken Triple J, so I don't know why so cheap. Others may be able to explain. Keep in mind, The (land) taxi ride from Belize International Airport to the Belize City Water Taxi dock cost's somewhere around $25.00US. We usually take the plane (faster), but we always get plenty of boat time during our visits.
