If you haven't experienced Belize yet, what's holding you back?
GETTING TO BELIZE Given our proximity to North and South America, as well as the Caribbean, getting to Belize is easy. Less than two hours by air from any major US southern gateway (Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, and Miami), Belize currently hosts five major airlines, that serve Belize from the United States and neighboring Central American countries. These carriers are: American, Continental, Delta, Grupo TACA, and US Air. These major airlines have daily direct flights from US and Central American gateways, all coordinated with European connections.
There is no direct flight from Mexico, but there are flights to Cancun with a 6 hour bus trip to the Belize Northern Border, down to the town of Corozal, then you can catch a commuter plane (Tropic Air) to the island.
The Philip Goldson International Airport (BZ) is the main port of entry into Belize. From Belize City, you have one of two choices to get from the Belize mainland to the island of Ambergris Caye. Most visitors reach the island by either taking a boat or an airplane across lower Chetumal Bay from Belize City. Locals refer to passenger boats as "skiffs" and their smaller canoe-like vessels are "dories". The crossing takes about 1-1/4 hours by skiff (or) about 15 minutes by a 15-passenger commuter aircraft.
