I think there is a bus from Playa Del Carmen to Belize City. But how far is that from AC? Does anyone know how long the bus ride is from Playa Del Carmen and where do you go to get a ferry over to AC?

Take a bus from Playa del Carmen to Chetumal at the border. Then either take a cab or a bus across to Corozol. From there you can either fly (20 or so minutes, less than $40.00) or take the Thunderbolt water taxi. Playa to Chetumal must be about four hours, maybe a bit less.

If you can get to Playa, if not there now.

Thanks for the info. Do you have to pre-book a flight and how often do they fly over to the island? What about the water taxi? How often do they go and how long does it take?

Tropic Air has five flights per day, Maya Island lists four. $40.50 per person one way. I checked the water taxi site, and it said they're only doing charters at this time. Regular schedule appears that it leaves Corazal at 7am.

Amazingly Playa Del Carmen is "open for business" already. Cozumel won't be too far behind. Cancun is some time away from being ready.

That is wonderful news to hear about Playa Del Carmen. Do you know if the hurricane did any significant damage there or washed away any beaches. We will be going in January and staying at the Fishermen Village Resort 10 minute walk away from 5th ave.
