For those that follow...Delta service was first class both at NYC and Atlanta. Boarding passes issued at NYC for both legs and no questions asked re return ticket. Customs on arrival at Belize was straight forward, no questions asked and no visa on arrival fee...so no different to most other countries (outside of UK and USA) and clearly a conservative and frustrating approach adopted by American Airlines. almost 7 years ago
Cheers. From what I have since read elsewhere it does not seem that the Belize entry will be a real issue...but time will tell. I was unable to book one way on Internet via American Airlines and subsequent phone follow up hit the "policy" response. Have since been able to book online with Delta via Atlanta but it remains to be seen whether that becomes an issue trying to board at GA. Plan is to bus back out through Guatemala then thru Central and South America and whilst I have a return ticket back out of NYC in 12 months am clearly reluctant to tear up dollars to satisfy what appears to be an airline rather than country policy. If anyone has had recent experience that would be great to hear about otherwise I will update the outcome in due course. Thanks almost 7 years ago
Belize City - worth overnighting or straight to Caye Caulkner and is there plenty of budget accommodation available on arrival?
USD $25 taxi from airport to Belize City. Visa on arrival with no fee charged for Australian passport holder. Did not seem to be much in Belize City so a good choice to head straight for Caye Caulkner...USD $25 for water ferry from City to Caye Caulkner to San Pedro and back to Belize City...90 days to use the ticket...main street runs along the water front and plenty of vacancies and options starting from around USD $15 per night. Found a not flash but satisfactory room on front street at USD $22 per night with free wifi...which appears to be common and works ok. almost 7 years ago
