Not that long flight but the view is so pretty especially once we get over Ambergris Caye! it's about 15 min flying through but the ticket price was okay comparing to other options.

I regularly fly return to Belize City Municipal Airport and to Phillip Goldson International Airport mainly for business but sometimes for leisure. Found them to be very helpful and accommodating. Guests who fly to Belize with extra bags are always pleasantly surprised when they find no hassle handling of their extra luggage on Maya Island.

We used Maya Island Air to get from Belize City to San Pedro for a SCUBA trip. Very reasonably priced for the short flight.

I was a bit nervous about being on the puddle jumper at first, but I am so glad we decided to go for it. The views from the plane were amazing and the travel time was cut significantly as opposed to taking the ferry. They also bumped a couple of our group members to the same flight as everyone else...

Smooth sailing with Maya Air and a little bit cheaper than Tropic Air. Only 15 minutes and beautiful views. Took the ferry once....1 1/2hrs, bumpy but less money. Maya was very efficient in taking our luggage, was on a timely schedule and plane was clean and pilot was very nice. Good job Maya.

We recently (August 2018) vacationed on Ambergris Caye (an island off the coast of Belize). We flew into Belize City & then had a flight on a small plane to San Pedro (Ambergris Caye, Belize). Although I was a little concerned about flying on such a small plane (around 10-12 passengers) my concerns were unjustified. The flight was very smooth...

Sometimes your plan does not work out so from catching a bus to taking a flight in order to catch a boat to guatemala. we caught a Maya Island Air flight to Punta Gorda. Was very safe and dependable. friendly staff and enjoyable flight. No major delays, take off on time. Recommend for its safe flights

The planes are small but clean, its only a 15 minute flight, so well worth it. You get to see a lot from 2000 ft.

great service from the start. the check-in process is fast with friendly staff. minimal waiting - in fact if all customers are present, they usually take off early. flights were mellow, minimal turbulence.

We took this flight from Ambergrys Caye to BZE. Our hotel booked it the day before and it was a breeze. All employees from the ramp to the desk were very kind and extremely helpful that was beyond their job description. The flight was beautiful and pleasant. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect score is don't plan...
