GETTING THERE: Ambergris Caye, Belize

Ambergris-Caye-Aerial .jpg

Your first impression of Ambergris Caye is likely to be from the air, because most visitors to the island fly into the Philip Goldson International Airport at Ladyville just north of Belize City and then change to a local commuter for the 20-minute hop to San Pedro. On a clear day, you get a great introduction to Belize's Caribbean Coast. As your plane goes low over the transparent water, you'll see mangrove- or sand-edged islands, coral heads, the sand and sea grass bottom, fishing boats and sometimes the blur of large fish.

Flights run nearly every hour and if there are any delays with your international flight, Tropic Air will ensure you get on the next flight. A typical round trip flight from Belize International to San Pedro is $158 USD and can be arranged through Well Xplored. All we need is your International Flight details (Complete Form Below or Well Xplored Preference Form). The charged will appear on your hotel room folio.


Alternatively You can take a High Speed Ferry to San Pedro on Belize Water Taxi. The transfer time via boat includes 25 minutes from Belize City to Dock plus 90 minutes on water and 10 minutes from San Pedro. The round trip cost is $38 plus taxi is $25 per Couple plus $5 each additional person. 

Please keep in mind the following important notes: 1. The Ferry is on a first come first serve basis and does not take reservations; 2. Belize Water Taxi does not accept American Express. They accept USD$ or Visa and Master Card Only.  3. The last ferry leaves at 5:30pm. If your international flight is arriving to Belize City at 3:30pm or later we suggest booking the Air Travel as your time through customs and getting to the Ferry may be cutting it close.
