Arriving by Flight

Most guests arriving to Belize choose a regional flight to the island of Ambergris Caye. The island’s airstrip is in the heart of San Pedro Town at #7 Coconut Drive. Guests of Sandy Point Resorts enjoy a complimentary booking service. We are happy to arrange your regional flight on Maya Island Air. The round trip cost is added to your account for payment at the time of booking. Please note that we do not assess a booking fee for arranging flights; this is a service we provide for our guests. After deplaning and collecting any checked luggage, our welcome team will greet you. They will then arrange for the next resort shuttle to bring you to your resort.
