Tropic Air

Belize is a pretty small country, making it relatively easy to explore multiple cities in one trip. One of the best ways to get around the country is by using their small domestic airline, Tropic Air. We used this airline for our flights from Belize City to Ambergris Caye and back. After our time at Pook’s Hill we transferred to the airport. Once our driver helped with our bags we said our goodbyes and walked into the very small air conditioned room. I walked up to the counter and a kind lady asked me what flight I was on. I told her that I was on the 12:40 flight to Ambergris Caye. She gave me a very confused look and asked me if I meant the 12:30 flight. I showed her the tickets I had printed and how they said the flight was at 12:40. She looked them over, looked up at me and said, “honey you are at the wrong airport.” My heart dropped. I forgot to mention to our driver that we were flying out of the international airport and not the domestic airport. My driver was already gone and I didn’t have his phone number. It would take too long to call the lodge, but before I had a chance to open my mouth the woman looked at me, smiled and said, “don’t worry about it. You can just get on the 12:30 flight.” She then handed me two boarding passes. I took them and walked over to my husband, Nick, to explain what had happened. In a few short minutes we boarded the flight and were off to the beach. Tropic Air is a wonderful airline and I will forever be grateful that they let me get on that flight. Plus on the way back they let Nick sit in the cockpit just so he could take some pictures out the window. How cool is that?
