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. 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!
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!
Exploring Ambergris Caye There is so much beauty to explore around the island of Ambergris Caye, and you can do a lot of it by golf cart! I also 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!
