This is part of the London to Belize and Guatemala trip December 2019. http://dickandsuegotravelling.com/2019/12/detroit-usa-to-belize-2019.html
Travelling to Belize City,
A quick couple of hours flight on Delta DL924 and we arrive at THE PHILIP SW GOLDSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, BZE. https://www.pgiabelize.com/ I am now a tadge confused. The flight was under 3 hours and I assumed we had to pay for alcohol. However the alcohol was free, which was annoying as I didn’t find out until close to the end of the flight! Belize city to San Pedro Belize
BZE airport is cosy, but well sign posted within the arrivals area for taxis. However on hindsight I wish that we had pre-ordered a taxi as we had a 20 minute wait in the sun for one to arrive.
New Chon Sing Hotel and Restaurant
A short drive into Belize city and we arrive at the pre booked New Chon Sing restaurant and guest house. https://www.newchonsingrestaurantbz.com/
Do not be put off by this very clean, very safe Belize City hotel. We went to the restaurant/reception and had a lot of doubt about the place. However once we were shown to our safe rooms all was good. The doors to each room are set up with a personal numeric code individually selected.
The rooms are clean and tidy. If you dont eat at the restaurant in the hotel, then there are plenty around the area. But be aware most places seem to close around 9 or 10pm. Tomorrow we travel from Belize city to San Pedro Belize
Travelling to San Pedro
The following day we took the Belize Express boat http://www.belizewatertaxi.com/ to a nearby island, San Pedro. From New Chon Sing Hotel to Belize Water taxi is just across the road. A 2 minute walk.
Again we had pre-booked for the ferry and no doubt paid over the odds. It was clear that there are multiple ferries each day, and even travelling on New Years Eve the boats had extra seating capacity.
First stop was the island of Caye Caulker, then San Pedro. There are different boats but if they have an ‘upstairs’ it is a great experience to sit up there.
The trip takes about 1.45 mins.
