Can anyone tell me how long the water taxi ride is from Belise City to San Pedro? I've read that it can be anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, is this true? Which boat is the fastest? Are there boats leaving almost hourly or every few hours? We will be arriving in the late morning and I don't want to spend the whole day getting there. I know the flights there are cheap and quick and we may fly but I would like to know all the options available.

Take the plane. You and your luggage will be there in 17 minutes on Tropic Air from the International airport in Belize City after a simple transfer of luggage.

You will have plenty of opportunity for boat rides while you are there, unless you just hang in San Pedro.

Other than riding a bike or golf cart North of the cut at the North end of San Pedro to go to Capricorn, Captain Morgan's, Journey's End, Mata Chica, you can only leave San Pedro by boat or plane.

When else do you plan on being in a smaller plane from San Pedro to elsewhere? The sights from the air are amazing!!

Try to identify Caye Caulker and the fairways of the golf course on Caye Chapel. See the caye with one hut, one dock and one fisherman's boat.

The fiights are trip highlights - BelizeIt!

The water taxis/ferries from Belize City take about 1 hour and 15 minutes. That includes a brief stop at Caye Caulker.

Probably the most dependable are the three daily Caye Caulker Water Taxi Association boats which cost US$12.50 one-way. Catch them at the Marine Terminal.

The Tropic or Maya Island planes are fine, but unless the water is rough the boats are fun, too. And about one-fourth the price of a plane from International.

I personally think it's interesting to take a boat over and fly back, or vice-versa.
