How Do I Get To Ambergris Caye?

Getting to Belize is easy. Most of my clients coming down will fly through Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Miami or Charlotte. American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Continental Airlines, Taca and U.S. Airways all fly to the main international airport located in Ladyville, Belize. The international airport code is BZE.

Once you land at BZE you'll get off the plane and go through immigration and then pick up your luggage and go through customs. Once you pass through customs you'll proceed to check into either Maya Island Air or Tropic Air for your quick 15 minute shuttle flight to Ambergris Caye.

Both airlines fly every hour but I recommend and always use Tropic Air. They have more planes and can get their clients over to Ambergris Caye quicker then Maya.

To pre-book your Tropic Air flights just go to

A tip as to what time to book your flight: Tropic Air flights from BZE to San Pedro are scheduled to leave every hour on the X:40. So if your international flight lands at 12:30 then I would book your Tropic Air flight on their 1:40. It takes at least 30 minutes to go through immigration and customs. If for some reason you miss your scheduled flight they will just move your reservation to the next flight.

TIP: Sit on the right hand side of the plane. You'll get a great introduction to the islands of Belize as you fly from the mainland to San Pedro. Sitting on the right hand side will give you incredible views of the reef.

When you get off the plane in San Pedro you'll be right at the south end of town. Our office (RE/MAX Islands Real Estate) is located right across the street from Tropic Air. You can't miss us.
