You'll most likely begin your trip to Belize by flying into Belize City (actually its suburb, called Ladyville), unless you're a cruise ship passenger. This airport appeared a little more organized this time around than it did on our first trip here in 1996, when it was a total cattle call at the Tropic Air ticket counter - no lines or anything, just a crowd of people pressing up to the counter.

Be aware that there's an exit tax that must be paid in cash when you leave the country - some airline tickets include this tax in the ticket price, some don't. It was $35US. When you arrive, it's about a half hour taxi ride into the city, for a set rate of $20US. Or, if you're not staying in Belize City, you can transfer to one of the local airlines, Tropic Air or Maya Air, to continue on to the cayes or elsewhere within the country.

There's a little ice cream counter across from the ticket counters that sells ice cream mixed with several different fresh fruits. Or if you prefer refreshments of another kind, there's a bar once you pass through the metal detector.
