Sunshine, beautiful cayes, immaculate turquoise waters….Belize is a tropical paradise. Over 100 atolls and cayes dot Belize’s coastline. From sandy flats, to urbanized islands, every caye offers a unique experience.
Cayes stretch from north to south. The most popular islands in the north are Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. They are most popular due to proximity to the Belize Barrier Reef and Belize City. San Pedro Town is roughly an hour by boat or a 15-minute flight. Caye Caulker is roughly 45 minutes by boat or a 10-minute flight.
These cayes are the perfect base for scuba divers and snorkelers as the Belize Barrier Reef is a few feet away.
The Belize Barrier Reef, spanning 180 miles, offers unparalleled snorkeling and diving experiences . Home to over 500 species of fish and 100 species of coral, it makes for a lively and extraordinary underwater experience. Whether you go snorkeling, diving, do water sports or just spend the day on the beach relaxing or exploring the islands, you are sure to have a great time.
Heading south, islands are more remote. Stay at a private island and enjoy the seclusion in a private beachfront suite, with the view of the Caribbean Sea.
Island hop between San Pedro and Caye Caulker. Explore the island by golf cart or go on beach walks. When in Caye Caulker swim at the split and sip on a lizard juice.

Dine by the Sea
Make sure to order the catch of the day! Being on the islands, seafood is always fresh. In San Pedro, explore the island through its cuisine on a food tour, allowing you to taste authentic dishes of Belize.
