There are two airports in Belize City, the Philip Goldson International airport (PGIA) which services international flights and Belize Municipal airport for domestic flights. Tropic Air services both airports.
Belize Municipal airport is located approximately a mile outside downtown Belize City and offers a more convenient way to travel to and from Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. Tropic Air offers hourly flights between Belize Municipal and the Cayes. The airport is also a hub for other domestic airports in the South and West of Belize.
Belize City itself is the center of transportation, commerce and culture. Here you will find The Museum of Belize, The Bliss Institute and The House of Culture (housed in a 19th century colonial Governor’s residence) all showcase stunning ancient artifacts and historic memorabilia. St. John’s Cathedral is the oldest Anglican Cathedral in Central America. The City is also one of the main shopping areas in the country and there are some interesting local and more exotic restaurants. The tourism village for cruise ship passengers is centrally located downtown. There are several upscale hotels here and a casino.
Outside the city to the West, the Belize Zoo offers a chance to see the native animals of Belize in their natural habitats. Tropic Air offers a tour of the Belize Zoo together with zip lining. Driving north of the city lies the Maya site of Altun Ha.
Belize Municipal also offers an extremely necessary cargo service from the city to the Cayes.
