Requeña’s Charter Service & Watertaxi operates a watertaxi, “Mariestela”, between Punta Gorda and Puerto Barrios.

Departs Punta Gorda 9:00 am daily from the Municipal pier near the Customs & Immigration Office.

Cost: BZ$40.00 each way.

Tickets can be purchased in advance from Requeña’s office on Front Street (half a block north of the pier), or before departure from the Requena representative in front of the Customs/Immigration Office at the pier.

Contact: Requeña’s Charter Service & Watertaxi, 12 Front Street, Punta Gorda. Tel: (501) 722-2070. Email: watertaxi@btl.net

Website: http://www.belizenet.com/requena/

Not sure if they operate on holidays, but buses operate, so I would expect the water taxis to run as well.

Other water taxis:


Departs Puerto Barrios 10:00 am daily.

Departs Punta Gorda 2:00 pm daily.

Duration: 1 hour. Cost: BZ$50.00 each way (plus any exit fees).


Departs Puerto Barrios 1:00 pm daily.

Departs Punta Gorda 4:00 pm daily.

Duration: 1 hour. Cost: BZ$50.00 each way (plus any exit fees).
