Mata Chica Resort is located north of San Pedro Town in Ambergris Caye and what better way to get there than by a fun and exciting sight-seeing helicopter ride to the island.
There are two different routes to choose from in the transfer from the Belize International Airport to the resort. The options are as follows:
Option 1: Direct Route to Mata Chica Resort (Blue Route)
Upon leaving from the Belize International Airport, you go directly into the breath-taking view of the Caribbean Sea. Flying through the air you will pass over a few small cayes such as the ‘Hen & Chicken’ Caye. Enjoy the scenery of the open blue waters just breathing in the fresh air. Further along, you will pass over Congrejo Caye, and southern Ambergris Caye before landing at the final destination at Mata Chica Resort.
Option 2: Reef Flight Transfer to Mata Chica Resort (Red Route)
After leaving from the Belize International Airport, the flight takes you directly to the exotic view of the world’s second largest reef, Belize’s Barrier Reef. See the small cayes along the reef as they drench in the midst of the deep blue waters, such as Coffee Caye, Montego Caye and Long Caye. Following the path of the reef, be amazed at the different shades of colors of the Reef and look closely as you might see a manatee, dolphin or shark in the waters. You will then fly over the golf course at Caye Chapel.
Then, it’s one thing crossing over the split of Caye Caulker by land but imagine viewing it from above seeing all the formation of how the hurricane just divided the caye into two separate parts. Further down the path of the Reef you will be able to see the most popular snorkeling site in Belize, Shark Ray Alley at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, where it is guarantee you will be able to “swim with the sharks”. Enjoy the view of the Reef as you pass San Pedro where you will have a breath taking aerial view of the town, the flight continues further along the reef where you can be dazzled by the water view that borders the Reef until arriving to the final destination of Mata Chica Resort.
