hi, traveling to belize for the first time with family--2 kids 10 and 12. we were planning on taking the water taxi from belize city to san pedro. we are staying in san ignacio for the first part of the trip and thought we would stop by the belize zoo on the way back to belize city and then take the water taxi. however, our concierge at san pedro has recommended against taking the water taxi and instead is really pushing for us to take a flight. the flight is more expensive, but not enough to where we wouldn't take a flight if the water taxi ride is truly unpleasant. i thought a boat ride would be fun.... for those who have taken the water taxi, is it uncomfortable? unsafe?
also, IF you agree with the concierge and think we should fly, how would you go about arranging the flight so that it is cheap? the concierge wants to arrange all our flights for us, but the prices sound like we're being taken for a premium.
any advice appreciated.
