We will be arriving Tuesday April 12 at 1:15 PM on AA into the BZE airport. How much time should we allow to go thru customs and take a taxi ride to the municipal airport to take a Tropic Air flight to Ambergris Caye. Gracias.

Just depends on how many flights land at around the same time, whether you have only carry on bags, or checked luggage, and the mood of the customs/immigration people at Goldson. If you were leaving Goldson directly, I would say to book the 2:40 from BZE to SPR. Since you are going to Municipal, I would say you could make the 3:30 flight, depending on all of the above.

I would guess the fastest would be 1 hour if everything goes smoothly. If your luggage is last off or lost and there are other flights coming in, it could be over 2 hours.

Tropic recommends allowing for 40 min on Arrival and being at airport 2 h before your return for international add on 20 - 30 min cab time for getting to municipal.

Tropic Air is an incredible airline........One trip down our flight was 2 hours late.....All the passengers were crazy worried they missed their 'connecting' flights.....I explained to those around me that Tropic will take care of us when we land....It got around on the plane and people settled down....(in reality what could our current flight attendants do anyway?)...

Nonetheless when we arrived; Tropic had their fabulous friendly staff on site and all their planes held for our delayed flight.

Many other times, I booked too early and got delayed enough to miss my connecting flight....They have always got us on the island before dark....

Thank you Tropic....And Kenoguy don't worry they'll take care of you....

My friends call me Judyann

Kenoguy - my personal suggestion would be to take tropic from International - for the little bit you save going to Municipal it adds on time plus the taxi to Municipal - it's so much easier to not worry about taxis and getting to the other airport. Check out Tacogirl's Tropic specials, you can save a few bucks there! Have a great time!

We all have our personal preferences. If there are two or more traveling together I recommend the drive to Muni. WHY? Believe it or not there are some interesting places other than Ambergris Caye. However, I find the twenty minute (or so) drive from international to Muni just enough time to be entertained and educated by the driver.

What the heck's the hurry - you have the rest of your life to live if you slow down and see the wonder everywhere.

To those of you who are only interested in getting to A/C to start drinking - well - enjoy your short life! Just ribbing you- well kinda.
Everyone's agenda is different. Just decide what you want to do and do it.

When the weather is nice (calm - no wind) I even enjoy doing the boat ride over. I've met some of the most interesting and informative people doing this. AND - being down at water level is very spiritual.

$194.00 RT for 2 inclds taxi both ways via Muni vs. $250.00 RT for 2 from BZE to SP

Reality is only an illusion that occurs due to a lack of alcohol

Cracked - Why does it still surprise me when all that is considered interesting is drinking establishments??? For crying out loud - stay home and do that.

Most of the taxi drivers will give you a run down about Belize – They have always been very entertaining. OH - not interested? Excuse me - but you hit a nerve.

One other GREAT advantage of flying through Muni - your luggage is on the same plane that you are.

How frustrating it is to have my company arrive in SP at 4:00 and have to wait until 6:00 for their bags to get here.

OH - that's right - you just go across the street and drink until it arrives. Hopefully you can remember to go back and get them before the airport shuts down. What the heck – you won’t really need anything anyway will you? Maybe borrow a tooth brush in the morning.

Forgive me Marty – I know not what I am doing! LOL
