Ambergris Caye is the largest of the Belize cayes (islands) and is the #1 tourist and retirement destination in Belize, rated as one of the top islands in the Caribbean. If you’re curious about how to get to Ambergris Caye, access is by private boat, public water taxi, or plane – it’s about 36 miles from the Belize mainland. Tropic Air and Maya Island Air offer regular flights to Ambergris Caye from the mainland – just a short hop and a jump away.
Of the legendary sights and many things to do in Ambergris Caye, a visit to the Great Blue Hole should top your list. This gigantic limestone “sinkhole”, formed after the last Ice Age, was once a cave which morphed into a hole when the cave’s roof gave way – overrun by the Caribbean Sea. The Ambergris Caye Trip Advisor rates this as one of the Top 10 attractions on Ambergris. Contact the San Pedro Tourist Guide Association for a list of qualified guides.
If you’d rather sip a Mojito at a swim-up bar than paddle in a 415’-deep sinkhole, head for Coco Beach Resort, the only San Pedro Resort that made it into Expedia® 2011 Insiders' Select® List of the Top 500 Hotels in the World (chosen from 130,000 hotels).
