San Pedro Belize (Ambergris Caye) introduces a new ferry service, revolutionizing travel between Belize and Mexico.

On February 24th, a new means of transportation between Ambergris Caye (San Pedro Town) and Mexico was announced. San Pedro Belize Express unveiled its latest addition, the Three Star Voyager vessel, marking a significant milestone in the connectivity between Belize & Mexico and expanding its service offerings.

This inaugural trip from San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, to Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico, signifies a new era in regional transportation. The new vessel enhances connectivity and convenience for residents and tourists visiting the Belize island of Ambergris Caye. This route fills a long-standing gap in direct travel options between Belize and Mexico.

The Three Star Voyager vessel is designed with passenger comfort and safety in mind; the 58-foot Catamaran boasts cushioned seats and bathrooms/restrooms with an advanced septic system. The Three Star Voyager has the capacity to accommodate 104 passengers and offers a comfortable and safe means of travel.

The ferry and water taxi schedule is strategically planned to cater to the needs of both local residents and international tourists. The new Three Star Voyager vessel allows for faster transportation, which provides ample opportunity for day trips, allowing travelers and locals to explore Chetumal or conduct errands with the convenience of a direct return trip.

Pricing varies based on departure points, with special rates for Belizean residents and citizens. This new means of water transportation improves the connectivity of Belize and Mexico, making cross-border travel accessible and affordable.


Improving Belize’s Tourism and Trade

The ferry route (water taxi) enhances the travel experience between Belize and Mexico but also holds significant potential for boosting tourism in Belize (specifically Ambergris Caye) and facilitating trade in the region.

This new route also signifies a milestone in connectivity, improving not only transportation for tourism but also logistics. By providing a direct and efficient travel option, it opens up new avenues for economic cooperation and trade. The new ferry route shows the mutual growth between Belize & Mexico.

As this service gains popularity, it could pave the way for further expansions in regional transportation networks in the Caribbean, heralding a new chapter in Caribbean & Central American connectivity.

The trip between Ambergris Caye & Chetumal will take customers quickly and smoothly from Ambergris Caye, Belize, to Chetumal, Mexico. The trip is about 1 to 2 hours each way.

The water taxi service will further increase tourism to Belize and Ambergris Caye, especially with the recent opening of the Tulum International Airport and the Tren Maya (Yucatan Express Train system).

The Tren Maya (sometimes also Mayan Train or Maya Train) is a 1,554-kilometre (966 mi) intercity railway system in Mexico that traverses the Yucatán Peninsula. Construction began in June 2020, and a section began operation in December 2023, with the rest of the line to open later this year.

The railway begins at Cancún International Airport and travels down to Chetumal and the Mexico/Belize border.
