San Pedro, Ambergris Caye
The most popular beach destination in Belize is the beautiful island of Ambergris Caye.
The main town on the island is San Pedro and is very laid back and relaxed. San Pedro Town offers small beachfront hotels, lots of water activities, several interesting restaurants and a little nightlife too.
It’s only a 15 minute flight from Belize International Airport to the new San Pedro Air Terminal, and normally someone from your hotel will be there awaiting you. After checking in, wander down the beach to Cholo’s Sports Bar and have an ice cold Belikin, the beer of Belize.
For lunch or dinner, you must try the famous Elvi’s Kitchen. We loved the Shrimp in Watermelon Sauce and enjoyed Basil Ice Cream for dessert. Be sure to find time to stop by DandE’s to try the coconut frozen custard and the watermelon or mango sorbet.
If you are interested in a bit of nightlife, start your evening with live music at Fido’s before heading over to Jaguar’s or Big Daddy’s. The after hours crowd moves to Big Daddy’s after Jaguar’s closes.
The number one excursion that you can’t pass up in San Pedro is the snorkel to Hol Chan Marine Reserve. It’s a two stop snorkel that includes Shark Ray Alley. There are more beautiful fish than you can count and lots of sting rays and nurse sharks. Yes, you get to swim with the sharks and it is a truly spectacular experience.
San Pedro is the perfect destination to kick back, relax, and have fun. You can choose to do everything or nothing at all!
