Travel Tips

Prepare for the trip of a lifetime

Belize is located between Guatemala and Mexico and is one of the largest tourist destinations in Central America. Belize is known for its spectacular coastline. Perfect for a relaxing walk, or an exciting snorkeling adventure. Ambergris Caye is the most popular island of the hundreds of small islands off the coast. A-90 minute ride on the water taxi connects Belize City to San Pedro. Be mindful of the schedule as the water taxi only travels in the morning and afternoon.

There is no international air traffic directly to San Pedro’s Airstrip. Look for flights into Belize City’s Philip Goldson International Airport (PGIA). Look for a connection to San Pedro’s airstrip or consider the water taxi.

The currency in Belize is the Belize Dollar (BZD) but most places take US Dollars (USD). The exchange rate is about 2:1. You’ll find ATMs throughout San Pedro.

There is limited car traffic on San Pedro. There are some taxis available but you can’t rent a car. Travel on the island typically happens by golf carts. We’re happy to rent you one!
