What is the most affordable way to get to Ambergris Caye Belize?

how to get to ambergris caye belize

There’s no shame in admitting that you’re a bargain hunter. It’s a noble hobby that’s fun and a wise way to enjoy twice the number of vacations others take because you take advantage of sales, bundles, and vacation deals that—well, save you a bundle. Whether you’ve been to Belize or you’re planning your first trip to this Caribbean nation, we’ll help you get here with enough cash left in your pocket to live large after arriving!

The most economical way to get to Ambergris Caye in Belize—which is so close to Cancun, it’s a shame not to visit there first–is to take the four hour ADO bus ride from Cancun to Chetumal and then grab the 1-1/2 hour ferry boat directly to Ambergris Caye.

Alternately, you can take the regularly-scheduled night bus to Belize from Cancun, arrive in Belize City at 7 a.m. and then hop in a ferry to Ambergris Caye. The ADO bus system is an air conditioned ride—some complain it gets downright chilly, so bring a sweater—that shuttles between Cancun and Belize City, so you wind up in close proximity to your final destination by enjoying a leisurely, eight-hour bus ride.

If you plan to stay at SunBreeze Suites on Ambergris Caye, the resort’s concierge can arrange to collect you and get you to your luxury room in quick order, so your journey isn’t just affordable, but relaxing, too.

While you’re at SunBreeze Suites, located at the north edge of San Pedro Town, enjoy all aspects of this fabulous vacation resort, including immediate access to the Belize Barrier Reef for scuba diving and snorkeling  and there’s plenty of “island culture” to suit your fancy, including fine and casual dining, quaint shops and a lively night life if you intend to make the most of your Ambergris Caye stay.

But suppose you’re so eager to get to SunBreeze Suites that you would rather fly to Belize than take a bus. You have options: hop a Tropic Air flight to Belize International Airport in Belize City from Cancun. Tropic Air sets new standards for pampering and first class treatment and this boutique airliner will get you from Mexico to Belize in style. There’s also a flight that goes from Belize City to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, so get to your final destination even faster.

Do you want to fly directly from North America to Belize City? You can find affordable airfares using travel aggregators. Check pricing for October 2015 and discover one-way, nonstop flights that run $301 (United), $315 (Delta) and $476 (U.S. Air). Fly a non-U.S. carrier and expect your tab to run about $504 on Copa and $644 on Avianca, but keep this in mind: All fares are tied to restrictions that can alter the price big time! By the way, Copa will begin direct flights from Panama in December.

There’s lots of excitement on the horizon these days because Southwest Airlines just announced direct flights out of Houston http://www.kayak.com/flight-routes/Houston-George-Bush-Intcntl-IAH/Belize-City-Philip-S-W-Goldson-BZE) that kick off the week of October 15, 2015, but the biggest news of all is that Ambergris Caye is on the verge of getting its very own international airport, which is likely to revolutionize air traffic to Belize.

Keep an eye out for developments on this project as you enjoy beach time at SunBreeze Suites, an affordable and comfortable accommodation that could become your frequent holiday home-away-from-home once there’s an international airport in close proximity!
