I try to stop in for a drink here each time I fly out of the Belize City International Airport. However I know it's not for everyone. The drink selection is a bit limited, and the selection of food is extremely limited. After sitting for a while, you may notice that Jett's has no running water within its tiny footprint;... More

Who knew an airport bar could be so much fun? It's a very tiny place without much seating but it's not to be missed if you have some time to kill while waiting for your plane. Try some rum punch and enjoy your time talking to Mr. Jett and his friendly bartender!

Small, friendly bar right by the boarding gates at Belize international airport. Jett is there, he's an offbeat character with a strange voice but friendly, welcoming and a good host. If you're accustomed to corporate bland overpriced airport bars, this is more like an actual dive bar, right in the terminal, where you can talk to fellow travelers and get... More

The owner is unique and by himself is a good enough reason to stop in, I've heard a few bad things but never witnessed them. The hot dogs are great while waiting in the international section of the airport. Jet came out and talked to us and showed us pictures of his daughters, wrote a birthday note for my travelling...

The greatest welcome and the best adios you could ever ask for comes from Mr Jet himself. An island character that will make you feel like you were meant to live in Belize and can not wait for the day you return

We always stop here for hotdogs while we are waiting on our departing flight. It is a small place but fun to visit.

Grab that chance to get your last sip of Belizean hospitality before you fly home. Remember, the best rum punch is the one in your hand. Jett's drinks are strong and cold.

This is a great little bar in the Belize City airport and the owner is a great person. He will show you tricks and treat you well. He is definitely a true Belizian.
