How much can I expect to pay for a taxi ride from the Belize City airport to the San Pedro Water Taxi service that leaves from there? I have heard that you can get ripped off fairly easily if not careful. Is there any truth to my fears?

If you are asking about the fare from Belize International airport, the standard fare is $50 Belize - at least that was the rate last time I took one - gas has gone up so it could be $60 now - but Belize dollars, not US. The ride takes about half and hour.

Sometimes drivers will tell you $50 and hope you pay in US.
Just confirm the rate before you take off.

The fare from the Belize City Municipal Airport is much less - maybe $10 or 15. This airstrip is near the water taxis and the ride is about 5 minutes in duration.

I am guessing they want the price to the water taxi, which I am guessing is about the same. Don't know where you are traveling from, but taking the taxi, water taxi, etc. makes for an even longer travel day. I always suggest the flight directly from International, even though it will cost you about $15 US per person more than what you are planning, after getting up at 2:00 am to catch a flight, then another flight, and sitting in airplanes and airports all day, it is well worth it.

I ride that a lot. Fare to City airport from Belize City is same as any other short ride in the city.-$6-8 unless you look like a Rich Pedrano.
