Guests fly to Belize International Airport (BZE). Our local Tropic Air flights are coordinated around all on time international arrival and departures. The local flights take 20 minutes and depart hourly between 7:40 am and 6:40 pm BZE – SPR. Tropic Air allows for two bags per person, up to 40lbs per bag. Upon arrival at BZE proceed through Immigration, collect your baggage and continue through Customs. The Customs line to the far right has a green sign that states “No Goods to Declare.” You will want to go through this line. After clearing Customs, please continue into the main terminal on your left. Go directly to the Tropic Air Counter, which is the first counter, on the far left. El Pescador will arrange for your local roundtrip transfers between the Belize International Airport and El Pescador, which are included as part of the package or may be booked a la carte if you have booked on a nightly lodging only rate.
