Ok, don't laugh, if I don't have to take one of the puddle jumpers will I be alright on one of the water taxis from Belize City to Ambergris. I don't like to fly on big planes, so a little one is not going to make me any happier. Will anyone who's taken the water taxi from Belize City to San Pedro, please let me know how your trip went and was it worth it. Thanks.

Becky, I know that you will survive the small airplane flight from Belize International to San Pedro. Just think of the time you will save not going on a 1.5 hour boat ride!

I am not a big fan of flying at all, but I have to do it quite a bit for business. I am more fearful of the big jets than the small planes. I plan on having a Belikin right before I get in the puddle jumper and enjoying the ride!

not to worry Becky...catch the Andrea down by the swing bridge.leaves about 3:30daily .Its fully closed so you wont get wet..takes about an hour and is a pretty ride..If the weather is nice try the Thunderbolt, its an open boat but is faster.. it leaves a bit earlier around 1:00 I think..There are several others as well..just ask a cab driver at the airport as to what is leaving when. I;ve traveled to San Pedro both ways but always preferred the boat.

Thanks Deano, do you know how much I am going to have to pay? Yes, I am a chicken about the puddle jumper thing, but I also love boats, so I will still enjoy the boat ride.

The boat ride SUCKS!
I personally love the ocean and boat rides, but it SUCKED soo bad. Remember its in the ocean, its not a very big boat, the waves make it a pretty choppy ride and trust me if you plan on doing any of the ruin sites or mainland tours you will have PLENTY of boat rides!
The small plane was only $22.00 US, it only took 10 minutes and it was an incredible view! And besides, you will be so excited to get to the island you wont want to wait!!
Have fun!!!

I enjoyed the ride to CC, and thought it great!Yes, you are in a boat, and in the sea that is probably as warm as most baths, and as blue and green as you have never seen. No, the water is not necessarily calm as a duck pond, so what is? Enjoy your vacation, is it not about experiencing new things?

if you fly out of municipal airport, not international airport, the cost is about 1/2. Many in-country flights that go to international continue on to muni for no charge. The taxi to the water taxi is cheaper that way also.
The water taxi is cool, can be sooo crowded and may seem interminable after a long day of travel. The old adage is "you haven't flown in the Caribbean until you've ridden co-pilot"; little kids or pretty girls always get to be co-pilot;-}
Remember, whichever way you go, there you are.
