Getting to Thatch Caye
Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 & You're HERE.
Step 1: Book your international arrival flight into Belize International Airport (BZE)
You are able to fly into Belize City International Airport (BZE) on most major airlines. International airfare is not included in your stay. Many US cities have direct flights to Belize City. See more information HERE.
When visiting Thatch Caye Resort, please book your international flight into Belize City for an arrival no later than 3:45 pm. The last Maya Island Air or Tropic Air flights depart Belize City for Dangriga at 5:00 pm.
Step 2: Let us take care of arranging your flight to Dangriga
Once arriving to Belize International Airport (BZE), most guests take a short commuter flight to Dangriga on Maya Island Air or Tropic Air. Round trip flights between Belize International Airport (BZE) and Dangriga (DGA) are $195 US per person. This is not included in the package rates. However, we are happy to organize the local flight for you.
Guests that would prefer not to take the short commuter flight, can make their own rental car arrangements, or we can organize a car service for $400 US round trip for up to three guests. Some guests also choose to take the bus from Belize City or elsewhere in Belize. We are happy to meet you at the Dangriga bus station with notice of your arrival.
Step 3: Enjoy our shuttle to Thatch Caye Resort
The staff will coordinate arrivals on a daily basis with two boat pickup times around 2pm and 5pm. Once you have arrived in Dangriga, our friendly staff will meet you and take you to the dock at the Pelican for the boat pick up. Enjoy the 9 miles boat ride from Dangriga to the island. The boat ride is approximately 25 minutes.
Departure times will be arranged on island and will vary based on all departing guest flight times that day. We do our best to minimize wait times for local flight departures.
