Airfare to Belize City, Belize

Include Hotels for the Best Deals

p>Although most populous city in Belize (still with less than 70,000 people), and its industrial and financial epicenter, Belize City is not the capital of Belize, thanks to its low-lying position close to the sea and near total destruction in 1960 by Hurricane Hattie. However, Belize City remains the country’s main port town and area where most travelers enter the country.

Airfare to Belize will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.

Also consider flights into Flores, Guatemala. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.

Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through San Jose, Costa Rica, or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.

Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Maya Island Air is a local airline. However, Tropic Air, Delta Air Lines, Continental Airlines and other airlines also stop in Belize.

The most expensive air tickets to Belize are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.

Summary of Money Saving Tips:

  • Fly mid-week
  • Book your holiday during the off-peak season
  • Consider flying into Flores, Guatemala and traveling overland to Belize via train or bus
  • Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
  • Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
