A good sale to Belize for last minute travel – availability is EXTREMELY LIMITED!
If you want to visit one of the Cayes or Islands, a popular one is Ambergris Caye — you can fly the local carrier, Maya Island Air, between Belize City Int’l and Ambergris Caye. If you are part of a big group, it might be worth it to split a taxi and go to Belize City Municipal Airport and fly from there instead — based on our check, pricing is usually halved if you fly from there.
