Quick easy flight to San Pedro, my wife and I enjoyed the 15 min flight with a great view of the landscape. Booking in advance, flight, checkin and baggage were all simple and quick. Only downside was due to the small size planes it is a little awkward getting into the plane. We didnt think it was a big deal...

I booked a flight, and when I got to the gate I started to realize that it’s actually a small airplane. It was an extremely fun flight, wouldn’t miss doing it again. My friends took a flight with them around the great blue hole in Belize. Highly recommended

Such a great little airline company. The small planes are so different than the usual Boeing 7__ And you get a much better view of what's below too, especially going over the Cays and the beautiful Caribbean waters.

While boarding a 16 seat plane, a Tropic Air employee was directing us where to sit, in order to even out weight on the small plane. I am overweight. The seat set up in the plane was a small bench seat in the back, 4 single seats with an aisle between them, and the two front rows had double bench...

Small air taxi outfit, but very efficient operation and pleasant, careful folks in nice facilities. The hop over was simple, easy, fast and very well organized. Fun flying only 2000 feet with great view of water and islands. Compared to big airports and airline, this experience is a joy!! And on way back to Belize City several days later, we...

Gotta love these small carriers. We were scheduled to leave at 9:00 am and left at 8:30 instead. Once they have enough to fill a plane they go. Pretty efficient organization from my limited experience. My further travels that day with American Airlines...Not so much! Felt as safe as one could. They do put a traveler in the seat next...

We opted to fly over to the island verses taking the water taxi, so glad we did, easy access to & from terminals at airport, new and bigger plane, very comfortable. Would highly recommend Tropic Air service.

We flew from Placencia to Belize City on a Dehavilland Twin Otter which was different for us as we have flown on many types of aircraft but never a Twin Otter. We had a good view of the Northern Barrier Reef stretching along off shore and of Caye Chaulker and of Ambergris. There was no air conditioner on board but...

We were flying from Belize City to Placencia and showed up hours early and asked if Tropic Air could fit us on an earlier flight which they cheerfully did and at no extra cost. We landed in Dangriga en route just long enough for a couple of passengers to disembark and to take on a couple more. There was little...

Excellent value and fun..When you fly over the caribbean you can see the bottom and because you are flying pretty low (about 1800 feet) you can see manta rays sharks and other sea life if you fly during the day.
