We weren't sure who or what time to book our puddle jumper from Belize City to San Pedro and ended up going with the Maya Island Air Bargain Hopper flight an *hour* after our flight from Houston, TX was set to arrive. The airline recommends that you book your flight 3 hours after your international flight to allow for delayed...

Our return flight to Belize City was moved up at our request due to worsening weather in Placencia. From a 2:30 flight to 12:30. It was not a problem for them.

Nice little airline. Plane seats about 15, no frills for a short 15 minute flight to San Pedro. About 2800 ft. above water, nice views.

We like Tropic Air and Maya Island but we found Maya’s prices better on this trip. Our 1st flight was in the afternoon and the plane was pretty warm. Last flight was in the morning and much more comfortable

We flew both ways on maya airlines and the flights were reasonable price, scenic and 20 minutes. The service, flight and staff were great. Book no cancelations rate and get reasonable ticket price.
