I've been reading over these forums so forgive me if I'm the umpteenth newbie to ask this question, it's just that the threads I find here are all a few years old. First our info:
We are traveling in early April, 4 people, From Seattle to Ambergris Caye. We arrive from Dallas into BZE at 2:35pm. Returning, we have to get to Dallas for a 9:55 pm return flight home.
The folks at Tropic Air advised to book the 3:40 flight to San Pedro and if we are late they put us on the next one. So here are the questions:
What is the general order of things once our feet touch ground in Belize? Is it: Customs, Baggage, Duty Free, Board Tropic air? I realize that T.A. is mere feet from the customs area, but I'm more concerned with the flight home. If I've got to be on a plane in Dallas by 7:45 pm, when should I book my Tropic Air flight?
Do you go through customs at each airport? (Belize customs, then again in Dallas on the return trip)
Can you bring your normal stuff? make up, perfume, (yes in small bottles) Advil. Allergy meds. Will they let you bring your medication? Should it be packed in carry on or checked bags?
We were planning on bringing sunscreen, OFF repellent, etc (in a checked bag) Will customs confiscate it?
Can you give me an idea of how long it will take at customs on the return flights?
It says on the travel embassy forum for Belize that when we enter we have to have proof of a return ticket. I only have e-tickets with an itinerary and conf. code.
Can husband get luggage and I dash to duty free for coffee, booze and whatever? or does it move so fast we need to stay together?
Where do you put your duty free purchases (alcohol) on the Tropic Air plane?
Any other I.D. needed other than PP and Driver's license? (everyone in our party is over 18 but one)
*sigh* I think that covers it for now. LOL. I plan to pack very light but I want to bring my daily make up and perfume, advil, allgery meds, but not if they are going to be thrown out or delay us...
