Ambergris Caye in Belize
Ambergris Caye in Belize is emerging from a sleepy little Caribbean fishing village with sandy beaches, gently swaying palm trees and brilliant blue waters to a more vibrant, energetic, Caribbean Style Island filled with adventurous and fun activities.
San Pedro is the main city on Ambergris Caye, located 35 miles north of Belize City. The area was first discovered by tourists about 40 years ago but, to its credit, has resisted the exploitation and development of massive tourist complexes.
The lodging facilities, as in the rest of Belize, range from budget to luxury–something for everyone. Even though this is one of Belize’s most popular tourist destinations, it never feels crowded. The native population of about 2500 will make you feel most welcome.
The main reason for visiting here would be a love for water-related activities. San Pedro will cater to your every whim, whether it be swimming, snorkeling, diving, sailing, windsurfing or sport fishing.
You can even take day trips to the mainland, to see Maya ruins, go birdwatching, or look for manatees.
None of these activities are required, however, and there are plenty of beaches and hammocks beckoning you to relax with a cold drink.
We personally recommend anything made with one of the many varieties of Belizean rum. From your hammock, you can view the barrier reef and all of its related activities, just a half-mile offshore.
The primary mode of transport on the island are golf carts. There are a few “cart rental” agencies in town and, for a fun adventure, spend a half day driving up to the north end of the island stopping buy at the wide array of restaurants and bars on the beach.
