Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is Belize’s most-visited destination, located just 35 miles northeast of Belize City it is only a short flight or water taxi away. If you’re not this far in the process, go back and check out the Belize Travel Guide to start from the baseline (Booking flights and deciding destination) then you’ll arrive back here. 

If you’re ready to get to the island, here are the things to think about before you get there


Depending on the size of your group, there are a few options:

Hostel: Sandbar 

Banana Beach


The typical transportation around the island is by Golf Cart, there are dozens of companies on the island but we prefer to use C&S Golf Carts.


There are a few things that are “must-do’s” on Ambergris Caye, you are less than a mile from the Belize Great Barrier Reef…so it’s a good idea to get out and snorkle or dive by the reef. 

For all diving and snorkling tours, we prefer to use the guys at Chuck and Robbie’s Scuba Diving and Instruction. See a complete list here:
