Can anyone suggest the quickest way to get from Placencia to Caye Caulker and back again? Are there direct boats or do we have to take the two puddle jumpers each way connecting in Belize City?

2 puddle jumpers each way. There is a boat but it's more of a tour and takes 2 days with a camping stop along the way.

Thought so, thanks Barbara! How long do you think it would take to get from one to the other in total?

Here are the websites where you can find the flight schedules & fares:

Maya Island Air, http://www.mayaregional.com/

Tropic Air, http://www.tropicair.com

I think the actual time spent in the air is just under 1 hour for the 2 flights.

... so long as the schedules match up. In my experience travelling to Dangriga Maya generally gives better interchanges at the Municipal than do Tropic - though Tropic planes arrive/depart on schedule and Maya's often don't. I have gone from SP to Dangriga in just over 45 minutes, but on another occasion it took over 4 hours.

Thanks guys, very helpful info. Yes, the issue of planes being on time, always a crap shoot in my experience! Once we took off and were in the air only to find out the door wasn't closed properly and had swung open. Actually kind of funny but wouldn't have been had someone fallen out....
