It's been some time since I have been to Belize.

How long is it usually taking to get through customs and catch a Tropic flight? If your international flight arrives only 40 minutes before your Tropic flight, does that allow enough time?

If you miss your Tropic flight and it is the last one of the day, what are other options to get down to Maya Beach area? If by taxi, how long is the ride and what is the cost?

Should be just right on the timing LM. Don't know the rest. I go north.

If you advise Tropic of your schd arrival time but running late, they will hold the flight for you (most of the time)

In my experience, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes to get through Immigration. Sitting near the front of the plane means you get off sooner so are at front of the queue.

The big delay is waiting for the luggage to come off the plane. It might be 10 to 20 minutes, but always seems longer when you're in a rush.

Getting through Customs has never been more than a couple of minutes for me.
