Need for Advance Tropic Air Tickets? (Belmopan---->AC)

After spending a number of days exploring the Cayo (staying just outside San Ignacio), we intend to travel to Ambergris Caye for a few days. We intend to fly from Belmopan to San Pedro via Tropic Air. Is it recommended to purchase advance tickets? Can wemerely arrive in Belmopan and jump on a plane? There are 2 of us, and I like to stay flexible, but not get caught short. Any and all advice/input is much appreciated!

Book your tickets in advance from Belmopan, otherwise, if no one is booked on the Belmopan flight, they just won't send an aircraft.

We are doing the same thing next March. There are a few scheduled flights per day (you can get the times on their web site). We are going to have a driver take us to the zoo in the morning and then double back for a drop at the Belmopan airport. The driver is going back to San Ignacio anyway. Yes, BZE is closer to the zoo but we choose to avoid Belize City as much as we can.

Taco Girl www.tacogirl.com offers 10% on her web site and she is super helpful. You get a coupon with a reservation number and then pay when you get there.

I would make your reservation in advance. Our flight is already sold out and no longer available to book and it's on a Monday.

if it's cheaper to fly out of BZE, I'd fly from there. You really don't have to go to Belize City, the airport is in Ladyville.

I'd also think it would be a better idea to do the zoo, and then just go to Ladyville to catch the next flight.

You can fly both out of Belmopan and starting in Dec, from San Ignacio....bother are better than backtracking all the way to Belize CIty or the international airport. Extra cost is fairly minimal.
