Belize airport to water taxi - ?'s on cost and food

I am flying into Belize Int'l airport on THIS Saturday morning! My friend flies in on a different airline about 45 mins later. Will it be easy for us to spot each other or should we plan to meet somewhere? If so, any suggestions where we should meet?

Then, we're going to head over towards the Marine Terminal by taxi to take the water taxi out to Caye Caulker. Any suggestions on restaurants in that area to grab a bite? Also, what should we expect to pay for the cab to the water taxi?

I'll be out to Caye Caulker also either Saturday or Sunday and my daughter Tina will also be arriving Saturday from her other Hostel in Roatan in the Bay Islands.

My daughter has Tinas Backpackers Adventure Hostel on the beach in Caye Caulker. Cheapest place and the best place for location. I'll probably stay next door at Auxillou Beach Suites, or Dianes Guesthouse, also my daughters on the same beachfront.

Look me up, I'm an old guy of 70 years, name of Ray Auxillou



That is one web site with links to others.

Have a good time mon!

From the Int'l airport, its a $25 cab ride. That's supposed to be for the cab not per person. I think its 15 - 20 minutes.

I'd meet at the water taxi terminal. I don't recall anyplace near by to eat but you can probably get something at the terminal itself.

The entrance to Caye Caulker is very pretty. Largely due to the places owned by the daughters of the other poster.

You could meet in the downstairs part near Continental and Tropic Air. There are a few shops and some benches there (also a restroom). Or plan to meet upstairs from Tropic Air--great restaurant.

I agree with Kris. You should just wait for you friend in the terminal, since meeting at the marine terminal will just cost you guys an extra $25 US in taxi fees. Go up to the restaurant for a burger and a belikin. There's not a good place to eat at the marine terminal.

Also on Caye Caulker, look at Sail Winds, it's the yellow building between Auxillou and Diane's (all of which are just to the right of the water taxi pier). I just got back and paid $80 US a night, but got a full suite that had a livingroom and seperate bedroom, with 2 beds (plus a sofa pullout). Auxillou and Diane's look nice too, so you might just want to see which is cheaper.

Have fun!
