There are 2 Ferry Terminals in Belize City approx. 2 blocks from each other.

The Caribbean Sprinter which is a locally owned service (faster boats)

and The San Pedro Belize Express which can handle more people in peak times.

We usually choose the Sprinter service to support local business owners and they aren’t always as busy as the SPBExpress.

Yes, pretty much every small business or restaurant will take USD in Caye Caulker.  The USD is stamped at 2:1 so if something is $10 BZD, the cost would be $5 USD.

Most definitely!   Once you arrive just ask…….we are always available for tips and information

Lily Pad Check-in is 3pm – 7pm as the last Ferry boat is at 5:30pm (arriving at 6:15pm)   If you need an earlier check-in, we will try to accommodate depending on availability.

If you are taking a late flight to the Island (usually until 9pm) we will accommodate a later check-in time.

The Golf cart taxis on the Island cost $5/person (USD) to go anywhere on the Island.
