How to Get Around Belize
Once you get to Belize you will find it is fairly easy and inexpensive to get where ever you want to go. Belize City is full of taxis to get you around town. Sometimes they may try and overcharge so I always ask how much before I get in the taxi to make sure I am getting a fair price. You can take a bus anywhere on the mainland from the main bus terminal. It is really cheap, but you do get what you pay for. Expect overcrowded old school buses and an interesting cultural experience. To get to Caye Caulker or San Pedro, Ambergris Caye you can take a water taxi. They run around $25US and take 70-90 minutes. Even though I like boats and old school buses, my favorite way to travel around the country is to hop on a Tropic island hopper.
Tropic Air Flight Discount
A flight from the International Airport to San Pedro is about $78 US each way, with your discount. The flight takes about 20 minutes and is one of the most beautiful flights you will ever take. Because the distance is so short, the plane does not go above 2500 feet and it flies over the ocean so you can see dozens of islands and the crystal blue water that surrounds them. It is definitely one of my favorite flights in Belize 🙂 To get the coupon code for a 10% discount from Tropic Air on both local and international flights please enter your email and name below.
