Spanky, besides being so much cheaper than flying, going by boat is something everyone should try at least once! I found it to be a nice way to unwind from the long plane trip to BZE. In fact,it relaxed me so much I felt like I was slowed down to "island time" when we arrived in San Pedro.

Let me try this again...I replied and the thread was moved to the top but my message was not there....
Spanky, I definitely recommend traveling by boat from Belize City to San Pedro, at least once! It is so cheap, and it is a great way to unwind from a long plane ride! It is so relaxing to me that I feel I have slowed down to "island time" when we arrive.

I'm with Margarita on this one. After traveling all day, I don't want to fool around getting to the boat taxi area, wait around with a throng of people and then sit thigh to thigh with them for close to 90 minutes. I want to transfer my luggage to Maya or Tropica, enjoy the view of the reef and the cayes for 15-20 minutes and then head to my hotel where I can unwind from the trip with a beverage of my choice.
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Another thing to remember about the water taxi is that it isn't a calm swish through the water. These things are going what seems like at least 20 knots, and they slam those wave pretty hard sometimes. Take a pillow for a long trip like Belize City to AC.
And sit in the back if your spine can't take a lot of hard slamming.
