Riding the Ferries

Thanks to the airstrip in San Pedro you can fly from the international and municipal airport to Ambergris Caye, but some people prefer the more scenic route. TheBelize City Marine Terminal is where you go to find said ferries, which offer inexpensive transport to all of the cays. There are a few different companies that offer transportation, but they tend to all be similar. Most of the boats carry about 40 passengers at once and allow each passenger to bring two pieces of luggage aboard. The ferries run just about every hour and cost between $7.50(USD) and $10(USD), making stops not only on Ambergris Caye but also Caye Caulker and sometimes Caye Chapel.
