Ambergris Caye, is located off of the coast of Belize, a country on the east coast of Central America in the Caribbean Sea. The island is about 40 kilometers (25 miles) in length, and about 1.6 kilometers (1 mile) wide. There are just under 17,000 people who call Ambergris Caye, home! Rugged landscapes, exploring by golf cart, gorgeous sunrises & sunsets, swimming with sharks, and admiring the beauty of the Belize Barrier Reef are all reasons why I loved Ambergris Caye, Belize!

I traveled to Ambergris Caye at the end of May, and the weather was beautiful. I had one day to where a shower came through, but only lasted for about five minutes. I couldn't believe how affordable staying in a luxurious one bedroom condo, actually was!
Grand Caribe Belize The island of Ambergris Caye has so much to offer, especially when it comes to accommodations. I looked into several places, but narrowed it down to staying at Grand Caribe Belize. This beautiful resort is conveniently located two miles north of the town, San Pedro. It's charm really impressed me, and was in the Top 10 Resorts in Belize, and in the Top 25 Hotels in Central America. I stayed in a One Bedroom on the Beach, and it was very luxurious! The rooftop restaurant Rain, and the pool bar had incredible food with such wonderful service. I just loved everything about this resort, and would absolutely stay here, again and again.
Exploring Ambergris Caye There is so much beauty to explore around the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. The best way to do it, is by golf cart! It's such a fun, refreshing way to admire the scenery. I rented my golf cart from where I stayed, and it was worth every penny! Tranquility Bay was probably one of my favorite spots along the island! It is the fourth beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site I visited, while in Belize! I arranged a boat transfer from my resort to Tranquility Bay to explore further north than what I could travel via golf cart. There are no road this far north, so it's pretty desolate and relaxing! The deserted homes, pink sand, and my favorite, Turtleman's House, were some of the beautiful things I saw along the way! I also rented a private Cessna 172 with Tropic Air, and explored the Belize Barrier Reef! The shipwrecks, the Great Blue Hole, Lighthouse Reef, and Half Moon Caye were absolutely out of this world! There's no question in my mind why these places are UNESCO World Heritage Sites! Lastly, I took a boat to Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley in the Belize Barrier Reef to explore the beautiful underwater world. The amount of marine life with the gorgeous colors, made it such a surreal experience!
