Tropic Air Services (early 1980’s).
Mrs. Flora Ancona used to manage the ticket desk, coffee shop and travel agency all in this little shack.
The sign advertised to “stay at the Aqua Lodge” aka Ambergris Lodge. Drawing by Jayson Forman.
Ambergris Lodge became Mayan Princess in town. Aqua Lodge south of town was also Ramons Too / El Playador before it was sold again.
After Playador it became Exotic Caye Beach Resort/ECBR.
Same owners now but renamed Marriot Residences, but not built yet.
I can still see Flora Ancona outside with her microphone!
