from a friend....
On my way back from San Ignacio, I took an express bus to Belize City, which ended at the old terminal near the canal.
What is really surprising is how on the ball the San Pedro Express Water Taxi is. They literally offer concierge service every step of the way.
There are SPEWT LAND taxis at the bus terminal, and the taxi drivers are easily identifiable because they wear nice uniforms. I was offered a 10% off coupon, and this seems to be a normal deal.
The STEWT LAND taxi was nice, neat, clean, and even modern. It was not one of those normal old buckets. The fare to the water taxi terminal was normal.
Upon arrival at the water taxi terminal, there was a greeter there who took our luggage from the taxi and into the water taxi terminal. We did not have to lift a finger from the time we departed the San Ignacio bus.
Also available at the SPEWT terminal are connections to just about anywhere, including the ADO buses, local flights, etc.
They are located at the Brown Shuga terminal next to the cruise ship terminal.
The waiting area is clean, airy, breezy, cool, and very comfortable.
Can't complain about anything. They run quite an efficient operation all around.
I also had an opportunity to enter the Caye Caulker Water Taxi terminal today, and I have to say the renovations have the place looking as good as any international airport in the U.S. (in terms of attractiveness). They have come a long way.
I was well pleased with both water taxis.
