Spice up your Belize Vacation

A while back I got an email from Gabriel, he found me on Trip Advisor Belize Travel Forum while doing some research for an upcoming trip to Ambergris Caye He went onto say that his group really wanted to see the blue hole, but don’t want to take a 2.5 hour boat ride and did I know if tropic air does private charters over the blue hole? He was thinking a great way to begin their vacation would be to start at Belize International Airport with a private charter, do a scenic flight over the blue hole and then finish off at San Pedro Airport.

I wrote him back and let him know I thought it was a great idea and that Tropic Air was still doing the blue hole and that it could be done from Belize City as well as the leaving from San Pedro Option.

Blue Hole Tour

The plane follows the reef line south to historic St. George’s Caye, then heads east to Half Moon Caye and Lighthouse Reef Atoll onto the Blue Hole. You will make a few passes of this natural wonder, and return with a great view of Northern Two Caye and north Ambergris Caye near Rocky Point, where the reef gets really close to the island. From there, the plane takes you along the Barrier Reef to San Pedro Town. On this journey you also will have the opportunity to see Turneffe Atoll, the Booby Bird Sanctuary, shipwrecks, Manatees, and other animals.

Current pricing for Blue Hole tour

2 passengers – 3 seater plane $1,059.53 Belize Dollars + $5.00 riders fee per person
4 passengers – 6 seater plane  $1,816.88 Belize Dollars + $5.00 riders fee per person

Spice up your love life in Belize

Not only did Gabe spice up his Belize Vacation, Gabriel also spiced up his romance, below is his review on the tour and the magic moment.

We loved our time on Ambergris Caye and our blue hole flight was the highlight!  We saw a couple of ship wrecks and the pilot flew down low so we could see some manatees and the bird sanctuary. Looking through the photos makes me want to go back…maybe next year!

I actually proposed to my fiance Arial during the flight over and we are getting married this October!  She had no idea.  She was sitting up in the co-pilot seat taking pictures when I tapped her on the shoulder! I wasn’t even planning on doing it then, but i had the ring and it seemed like the perfect setting so went for it.


Congratulations to you both, may you have a long and happy marriage. Since your pictures have you thinking about next year, how about the after party? Here is a good post for some tropical honeymoon ideas Top 10 Romantic things to do in Belize part 2 – tacogirl
