Getting from Belize City to Ambergris Caye

Once in Belize City, you have two possible options for transportation to Ambergris Caye. The most convenient way to get to San Pedro is a 15-minute transfer flight with Tropic Air or Maya Island Air (roughly $158 US per person, round trip). Captain Morgan’s would be happy to arrange this flight on your behalf.

The other option is to take a Water Taxi from Belize City to San Pedro. This takes 1.5 hours and is approximately $35 US per person, round trip. This also requires that you take a taxi from Belize International Airport to downtown Belize City where the water taxi terminals are located. A taxi costs approximately $25. If you wish to take the Water Taxi, your flight must arrive by 3:30 pm local time, as the last water taxi departs at 5:30 pm.

Getting to the Resort

Once in San Pedro, we can offer round-trip transportation for $40 US for all guests staying in a room, villa or condo.
