Flights - what airport to fly into?

Hi, wondering if anyone knows if you can fly direct from NY to Belize? Also is there an airport to fly into on Ambergris Caye or do you have to fly into San Pedro?

Thanks!

There are some nonstops from Newark on United. I read recently they are going to increase the frequency, for a long time, I think there has only been one a week.

San Pedro is the only town,and the only airport on Ambergris Caye.

San Pedro is the main Town on the island of of Ambergris Caye and it is the San Pedro Airport that you fly into.

Usually at least one stopover from NY to BZE some flights have two.

Amanda, you seem to be unclear on some things.

International flights to Belize land at the International airport (airport code: BZE) located at Ladyville, about 10 miles from Belize City.

To continue to San Pedro (a town on the island called Ambergris Caye), you can fly with one of the two Belizean airlines, Tropic Air or Maya Island Air. Both have flights from BZE to San Pedro where there is a small airstrip.

Other options are getting a taxi from BZE to Belize City where you can get a flight from the Municipal airport, or get a water taxi (ferry boat).
