Ambergris Caye is reminiscent of the Hawaiian Islands in 1962. This tropical island of enchantment can best be described as an extraordinary fusion of contemporary and yesteryear. As you travel the sandy streets of San Pedro in a golf cart―the primary mode of transportation―you’ll see an eclectic array of trendy bistros, boutiques, restaurants and bars.
Paradise is Nearby
The best part is that all of these attractions are in proximity to hotel rooms on Ambergris Caye at the Exotic Caye Beach Resort. The resort’s accommodations feature oceanfront condo suites whose adept and friendly staff is eager make your vacation the best it can be.
They are delighted to assist you in arranging a day-tour to the main island of Belize, a parasailing adventure, hydro sliding, horseback riding, jet skiing or a fabulous voyage in glass-bottom boat. Or perhaps your dream vacation includes catching up on your reading while lazing in a hammock or taking in the local arts and culture. If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place!
Local Culture and Shopping
There are some nice Belizean art galleries on the Caye to browse. Some feature the paintings and sculptures of local artists, while other galleries focus on lithographs, watercolor, jewelry, ceramics and masks. If you are curious about the culture of the indigenous Garifuna, ―descendants of Amerindians and Africans― there is a gallery at which you can learn everything about them, and more.
If shopping strikes your fancy, simply stroll down Front Street for a diverse shopping experience you won’t forget. There are no malls here; just serene relaxed shops for you to enjoy. These shopping venues specialize in merchandise such as art, wines, clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, bamboo and wood furniture, ceramics, music, Cuban cigars, fresh, local foods, coins to name a few. Bonus: the downtown area is designated as a “pedestrian-only” zone on Saturday and Sunday evening. This makes for a delightful evening of shopping and strolling without the worry of golf cart traffic as you walk to and from your Ambergris Caye hotel room.
So you see it makes perfectly good sense to make resort reservations on the Caye. Everything you’d possibly want to see, do, or experience is within reach.
