Air Travel

You'll arrive fresher if you fly. From Belize City (both international and municipal airports) there are frequent flights to Dangriga and Placencia on Maya Island Air and Tropic Air. There are more than 20 flights daily between Belize City and Placencia, and more than a dozen to Dangriga. You'll generally fly in small aircraft, such as the 14-passenger Cessna Caravan C208. Fares tend to be slightly lower on Maya Island Air. There's an effort to open an airstrip in Hopkins, but as of this writing it has not been approved by the Belize government.
