Double Atoll Adventure Arrival Notes

On Arrival in Belize

The Belize International Airport (Phillip Goldson International Airport—airport code BZE) is small and easy to navigate.  You will disembark your plane directly onto the airport tarmac and will be directed to the terminal building and Immigration.  After your passport is stamped, you collect your bags and move through the customs area.  The whole process can take up to an hour, but is usually much quicker than that.  Once you clear customs, proceed to the departures terminal of the airport and locate the Maya Island Air desk.  Provide them with your passport for identification and they'll get you on to your domestic flight to Dangriga.  Upon your arrival in Dangriga there will be a representative of Island Expeditions or Bocawina Rainforest Resort meeting you at the airstrip to shuttle you to the resort for your first night's accommodation. 
 
Rendezvous

"I will be arriving into the Belize international airport on the scheduled Day 0 of my Double Atoll tour."
After clearing customs and embarking on your domestic flight to the Dangriga Airstrip an Island Expeditions’ representative will be at the Dangriga Airstrip to meet you on Day 0 of your tour.  Meeting arrangements are based on your international flight arrival time as confirmed with our Canadian head office.  Our driver should be waiting for you at the Dangriga Airstrip.  Please be patient as road conditions and late arrivals of flights may cause delays.  We are aware of all our guests’ flight arrivals, however if our driver has not yet arrived to meet you within fifteen minutes of arrival, please contact our Dangriga office at 522-3328 or 522-0078 to let us know your status and for any rendezvous updates.  Please dial the operator at 115 and request station-to-station collect when calling our Dangriga office.
 
“I have been looking for flights and all I can find are flights arriving in the evening.”
The last flight of the day from Belize City International Airport to Dangriga Municipal Airstrip departs at 4:25 pm, therefore we recommend any guests planning on arriving on an international flight after 4 pm check with our Guest Services department before booking the international flights to ensure that the timing will work with the international arrival. 
 
“I will be arriving into Belize earlier than Day 0” or “I will be arriving into Belize by car”.
Please be sure to contact our Guest Services department to arrange and confirm your rendezvous arrangements, location and time. 
 
Departure from Belize

Your trip finishes at the Belize Biltmore Plaza, 2 1/2 miles north of Belize City where we stay on the last night of the trip.  Dinner on this evening and any subsequent meals are not included in your itinerary.  We usually arrive in from the cayes late in the afternoon and you’ll likely be tired from a full morning of paddling, swimming, and snorkeling. The Biltmore is a comfortable and convenient location to end the trip as you are only 15 minutes from the International Airport the following morning. Depending on when your flight departs you can arrange with the hotel front desk for a taxi (it’s always best to confirm the fare in advance) to take you to the international airport.  We always recommend checking with your fellow travelers to see if you can share a ride to the airport.  For those trip participants who will be traveling to other parts of Belize, Belize City is the transportation hub of the country and you can get to anywhere in the country from there.  Please let us know your plans for post-trip arrangements and we will be happy to advise you on your best options.
