I mean this in the best way possible. Jet's is one of a kind with a larger than life owner. An awesome way to start your Belize journey and get a little liquid courage before your puddle jumper flight. A shot or two of One Barrel and a Belikin is my go to, but the rum punch is also tasty.

So hold your nose, close your eyes and embrace the weirdness. It's expensive but not for an airport bar with no other options. The hot dogs are tasty but don't ask a lot of questions. Grabbing a spot at the bar and people watching is the primary activity. If you have a college team sticker or a first responders patch... More

If you've been to the airport before, odds are you know of this place. Jett is a stable and a must see place when at the airport. He makes homemade sandwiches but the real reason to go is to catch that last minute local beer before heading back home. It also helps that he's a great host.

We love this bar, it is great for a quick drink waiting for your flight to the islands. The rum punch is a great way to start your vacation.

I try to stop in for a drink here each time I fly out of the Belize City International Airport. However I know it's not for everyone. The drink selection is a bit limited, and the selection of food is extremely limited. After sitting for a while, you may notice that Jett's has no running water within its tiny footprint;... More

Who knew an airport bar could be so much fun? It's a very tiny place without much seating but it's not to be missed if you have some time to kill while waiting for your plane. Try some rum punch and enjoy your time talking to Mr. Jett and his friendly bartender!

Small, friendly bar right by the boarding gates at Belize international airport. Jett is there, he's an offbeat character with a strange voice but friendly, welcoming and a good host. If you're accustomed to corporate bland overpriced airport bars, this is more like an actual dive bar, right in the terminal, where you can talk to fellow travelers and get... More

The owner is unique and by himself is a good enough reason to stop in, I've heard a few bad things but never witnessed them. The hot dogs are great while waiting in the international section of the airport. Jet came out and talked to us and showed us pictures of his daughters, wrote a birthday note for my travelling...
