Hi, we are staying north of town and just found out we will have to pay the toll to cross the bridge EVERY time we choose to use our golf cart to cross. Is there a discount anywhere or even a weekly pass? We will only be there a week so it does not make sense for us to purchase a monthly pass but were sooo looking forward to using the golfcarts all week rather than walking/biking!

Try asking your resort,
we heard Gand Caribe is helpful in splitting the weeks with guests.You may want to consider bikes now that the road is done, if your resort cant help;let them know your concerns.Good Luck
see ya soon

Yes, this is the case for us as well, staying a ways north of town. Paying the bridge fee once or even twice a day seems awfully expensive and unnecessary. Any help on this would be appreciated.

The big monthly DISCOUNTED PRICE for a bridge pass is $75.00 USD per month or $150.00 BZE per month . That's $900.00 USD a year to cross over a bridge over water which is a creek width at best.It's outrageous ,and local government does not understand they are just pushing expats away with all the fees direct and indirect that add to the costs of living on Ambergris Caye.

It is quite outrageous as you say, but please show me the expats that have been pushed away because of this?


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
