Does anyone have any new information regarding BAHA or fees and issues with bringing a 5# dog down. She will ride in cabin. I have her booked on a Continental flight in Sept.
Will Tropic allow her to travel as a carryon? What do they charge for that?

Contact BAHA and Tropic direct for accurate up to date info. There is info on the board for both but to be sure look into each personally to save real trouble. Tropic Air HQ is 226 2012. www.baha.bz/about.html

My experience is Tropic and it's down to pilot discretion - and I have been turned down in the past which could be rough if its the last flight.

Tropic has never given me any trouble. My cat flies in a soft sided Sherpa carrier which sits on my lap on Tropic. My daughter flies her 6 lb. dog in the same carrier and has no problems. When I retired to AC I brought my cat and my desert tortoise both in Sherpas on Tropic and there was never any question about either.

I plan to use the ferry when I transport my 55# mutt. It is my understanding that tropic will take your dog but it may cost you a seat or two. Good luck and in my point of view they are worth it especially for an extented stay. smile

Tropic charges up to three seats (three seats for a 70 lb dog)
and Maya charges only one. I do recommend the water taxi if you have time, it's much easier on the dog. Once they get out in Belize City it is so hard to get them back in for another flight. My dog truly enjoys the breeze on the water taxi, too.

BE PREPARED with all documents and papers in advance for BAHA and have your copies when you leave the states, even though BAHA will tell you they are waiting for you upon arrival to BZE. I had an incident once where I was denied my US flight.
