Hi All!

I'm new here. We'll be traveling to Ambergris Caye for the first time this weekend and I have a few questions. Can anyone tell me where the terminal for San Pedro - Belize Express Water Taxi is located and about how long it takes to get to from Goldson? Also once we arrive in San Pedro, we will need to take a cab to our hotel. Where would be the best place in San Pedro to pick up a taxi (that may be obvious when we arrive, I suppose smile. We can't wait for Sunday!

Goldson is the international airport in Ladyville the town next to Belize city. The water taxi terminal is in Belize city.
This suggested route comes up a lot and isn't the best way, 'Take the flight to the island from Goldson. after landing in San Pedro 5 to 7 dollars taxi ride gets you to most hotels or just walk. What hotel are you trying to get to?

The SPBE water taxi terminal is in downtown Belize City and is about 20-30 minutes ride by taxi from the international airport.

There will be a line up of taxi's where you dock. But again - where are you staying? Many resports pick you up and MANY are just a stones throw from the dock.

Hi! Thank you for your responses. We've weighed our options and decided to take a water taxi instead of a plane to San Pedro so we can reserve our money for excursions, dining, etc. We'll be staying at Royal Caribbean Resort, which is a little less than two miles from town (they do not provide transfer).
