Flying Tropic Air and Dangriga

The day we arrived in Belize City, we were scheduled to fly on a small flight from Belize City to Dangriga Since we were traveling with small kids, I wanted plenty of time to get from our international flights through immigration and customs and to our Tropic Air flight with plenty of time. I had given us about a three hour window, and once we checked into our Tropic Air flight, they told us that they were going to put us on the flight that left an hour earlier so we didn't have to wait. I was thrilled as we were ready to be done traveling and relaxing in our hotel! We grabbed some lunch in the airport and I went to the Tropic Air counter and asked if they could help us contact our hotel to change our pickup time. They took care of this for us and we were able to just relax and wait for our flight.

We were put on the small plane to Dangriga, and within minutes were airborne. After a quick 15 minute flight we landed in Dangriga and our driver drove us the block to our hotel, the Pelican Beach Resort in Dangriga. We were able to check in and relax in minutes! The restaurant served great food and drinks and our room had a beautiful view of the Caribbean from our front porch. We also were just feet from the airstrip so got to see planes taking off a few more times that afternoon. Luckily they don’t fly at night but the kids enjoyed watching them take off right over the dock. 

The front desk let us know that we would be departing for their South Water Caye location at nine the next morning, so we slept well and packed our bags again for the morning boat ride. The ride took about 45 minutes to get out to South Water Caye. We were on a large panga that had several rows of seats, and brought a couple staff members with us. The ride was beautiful and easy, and before we knew it, we had arrived to our little piece of heaven!
