There isn't a private airport. There is a Municipal airport, which is used for local flights and connections and an International Airport. You can get all of the prices at

I'm not sure your budget would stretch to two bedrooms, close to town and close to the water on Ambergris Caye. Airbnb is always a good option for less expensive accommodation though.

If I were here for two weeks, I'd spend some time in the Cayo area, on the mainalnd, and also on the cayes to get a better feel of the country and a much more interesting all round experience.

what is the approx cost to fly from Belize city to San Pedro? direct from the international airport, or from a private air port?

PSSunshinegal...I always call to confirm price or match price before booking on other sites such a orbitz, booking etc...In this case for example, I called Mayan Princess direct after seeing them on Gave them total price that was offered incl tax and hotel tax and asked if they can match and I would book directly. Not one but two girls told me no. I booked with another hotel ( unnamed) that said they would match this ONE time since I stayed with them prior, otherwise I would have to pay regular price, which was 27%higher.

Thanks for reporting Donna. If I was an owner or manager at this property I would not be very happy with the people answering my phones. This is not the way most properties down here operate and I stick by my original statement for others reading this post. Check first because you can really help an owner out by booking direct.

Thanks for all the help everyone. Its official or trip is booked. We will be arriving on Jan-26 and will be there for 2 weeks. We will be flying from the municipal airport to the island and are staying at a very new airbnb apartment. couldn't be happier with our decision as it will keep things more authentic, and the cost was a lot less than staying in the local hotels.
