Can we walk from Belize airport to Water Taxi?

We arrive in Belize airport on October 25th at 11:30 AM. Can we walk from the airport to the Water Taxi to Caye Caulker? We will have just backpacks with us. I hate to spend $25 each - which is what I have been reading - if it is walkable - especially during the day. Then we could duck in someplace for lunch. Any suggestions? Is this a silly or dangerous idea? As always, thanks to all.

Oh no, I just read the Belize city overview where it states that the airport is 10 miles out of town. I guess it is not a good idea to walk it. But,another question instead, would we be better to just book a flight on Maya Air for $63 versus spending the money for a cab to get to the water Taxi and then the money for the Water Taxi itself which totals about the same.

I highly suggest booking a flight with Maya or Tropic, it is by far the fastest, most convenient and scenic way to arrive to the Cayes. You simply arrive in Belize, get your bags, clear customs and check in for your domestic flight. The flight to Caye Caulker takes 7 minutes. Easy Breezy.

Belize note: most of the taxi drivers are charging US$30 from International to the water taxi terminal these days.

Caye Caulker note: Trivia night Weds, Fri and Sun at the Sports Bar - lots of fun! Once you get to the Caye Caulker airstrip, it is really not that hard to walk downtown from there if your bags are on wheels.
