We are moving up the resumption date on our scheduled Caye Caulker service to October 1 (from November 15th). Cargo services and Blue Hole tours will also resume on the same day. We look forward to returning to our second home very soon!

Great news. Just curious, after seeing your photos and a plane landing there already, what is there left to do? Thanks!

Not really sure.

They are building a small building that might be a new "terminal/office" area to the left of the main entrance off "Back Street" and tht could be it as well.

I would imagine there is some sort f bureaucratic red tape that might need to be filed and refiled and then processed by 3-7 different government departments before the new schedule is approved...all sorts of possibilities.

What I take away from it is that this project was slated to be finished by June 30, the fact that it was fully completed to the point of landing planes by the end of August is a monumental accomplishment, from the stories one reads of other major construction projects in this country. And the fact that he airlines are opening schedules a month and a half earlier than originally stated is a big deal as well!

I'm looking forward to hearing and watching the planes start to take off again, as I live just off the east shore about a 1/4 mile north of east end end of the runway (take off end)!

Thanks, Brad! We're coming to CC on September 14 and I was kind of hoping it would be open by then, but like you said, it is pretty impressive that they were as close to "on time" as they were. We've never taken the water taxi from Belize City before, so will be a first for us. Hope the weather cooperates smile And hope you are having another great day in paradise!
