Hatchet Caye Resort is located on the edge of Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve, just seventeen miles east of Placencia village. Getting to the island is easier than you might have imagined.
If you are visiting from outside of Belize you will be arriving at the Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Ladyville. After arriving at the airport, you can take a puddle jumper domestic flight on Maya Island Air to Placencia, which takes roughly 45 minutes and then a boat ride to the island, which takes about an hour. Or, you can now arrive in style with a direct helicopter ride from the International Airport to Hatchet Caye Resort. This newest transportation to the island is done by Astrum Helicopters and takes approximately one hour.
Astrum Helicopters has been operating in Belize for the last 12 years. The company operates Bell 206 & 407 turbine powered rotary wing helicopters with highly experienced pilots that have several thousand hours of flight time. Hatchet Caye Resort is now an authorized agent for Astrum Helicopters and can arrange your flight to the island for you.
So, the next time you are planning to visit us, you might want to consider our newest transfer option, and arrive in style on the island. To find out more about this transfer option and cost check out our Location and Getting Here page or email us at reservations@HatchetCaye.com.
