Alternately, there is an express boat service to Caye Caulker ( from downtown Belize City (roughly $30 per person); the last boat is at 5:30pm and you will need to take a taxi from the airport to the dock (roughly $25). For some reason, the express boat service doesn't seem too popular with tourists, maybe since it is recommend only if your plane lands before 3pm.
