Flight to Ambergris in advance?

I will be driving from Placencia to the airport to return the rental car then catching a flight to Ambergris. First question, how long a drive is it from Chabil Mar in Plancencia back to the airport? I don't know what time I'll start the drive and was wondering, since flights are frequent, do I need to book my flight in advance or can I just do it when I get to the airport? This will be in mid Sept.

Thanks

Since no one from SP or Placencia has answered your question, I will try to give you a little help. It is a two and one half hour drive to the International Airport from Hopkins, but allow three as you don't know the road and add one and one half more, for the drive from Placencia, so my guess is four and one half hours. If your car rental company will allow you to drop the car off at the MUNICIPAL airport, you will find that the air fare to SP is about half of what it is from the International airport. Unless you will be taking one of the last flights of the day, which are commuter flights, I normally just walk in and take the next flight. There are two domestic airlines, and at the Municipal Airport their "terminals" are a few yards apart. In September they often have specials and I always ask if there is a discount for cash (walk-ins only).

Thanks, that is a big help. I will ask if I can return the car to the Municipal airport. Now I just have to find out how to get there! Going back to the International Airport would be easy as that is where I am picking up the car!

Can you give me directions to the Municipal?

When we rented from Budget at BZE several years ago, we returned the car to their office in Belize City. They then gave us a ride to the Municipal airport.
