Hi everyone, thanks again for your replies to my earlier question! :-)
Had a slight change of heart and think we're now more likely to head to Ambergris for the "beach" part of our honeymoon. We really like the look of the Matachica Resort - being able to kayak out to the reef looks fantastic!
However, one of our reasons for choosing Ambergris over Placencia was to have a bit more choice for restaurants, bars etc so I wanted to check about the water taxi or ferry. I understand Matachica is further north with no land access back to San Pedro (Is that right?) so the only route is by water.
Looking at the coastal express website (http://www.coastalxpress.com/index.html) the service looks pretty good; scheduled services returning from SP until 2330 in the evening and later on Weds, Fri and Sat. However, I did just want to check - sometimes there's a difference between websites and reality "on the ground" (or water, in this case!) - can anyone confirm the water taxi actually does run that late?
I'm also not quite clear on how it works with water taxi services as opposed to the scheduled service. Are there several boats running, one as a scheduled ferry and the others for private taxi service? Is the private taxi service available later than the scheduled ferry?
Final question was just about the weekly pass; previous threads on here suggest it's priced at ~$45-50, which seems good value. Can anyone just confirm the cost for that though? And I assume that just covers travel on the scheduled service, not the taxi?
Many thanks for any replies! :-)
