Ambergris Caye, a small island off Belize, has the famed Caribbean assets of sparkling aqua-colored water, white sands and so many sunny days in a row, visitors lose track of time. Corporate and group events on Ambergris Caye would resemble vacation days even if meetings were involved.
Scuba diving, exploring caves and waterfalls, snorkeling and zip lining might be somewhat distracting if workdays are on the agenda. On the other hand, these activities could be rewards, bribes, surprises or incentives.
Corporate events on the island certainly have great potential to be pleasant, if not mellowing. A relaxed work group might make more progress in a new setting surrounded by beautiful scenery than in a city office building surrounded by noise.
The Exotic Caye Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye has a large, private beach. Thatched-roof oceanfront suites of one to three bedrooms are light-filled and clean, and most people will not be in them except to sleep. Corporate and group events on Ambergris Caye can have all the amenities on the wish list here.
A marina, bar and restaurant are part of the Exotic Caye Beach Resort, so non-work time is easily filled with fun and relaxation. Many guests are content to lie on the beach and gaze at the water, and why not? Corporate groups can also take advantage of the Adventure Tours scheduled by the resort if anyone has the motivation to move beyond the bar and the beach.
The coral reef here is a natural wonder, and the second largest reef in the world. It is, in reality, the largest in the western hemisphere. Snorkelers and scuba divers will be chomping at the bit to get out there and explore, but don't touch; the coral may cause allergic reactions.
If underwater activities do not suit, there are surface alternatives. Kayaking, wind-surfing, jet-skiing, canoeing and sailing can also be arranged making it impossible to be bored here. These activities may encourage an esprit de corps within the group. They may also encourage hotdogging; be prepared.
Shark-Ray Alley may sound ominous, but it is a favorite spot of visitors to the area. Any photography buffs in the group? This is the place for that. The boat arrives, and the sting rays and nurse sharks appear. The dive-master feeds small fish to the sharks, which are about four to six feet in length.
The sting rays have a two to four foot "wing" span and like to swim beside the divers. Who does not want a shot of that? Disposable underwater cameras do exist for those who do not want to get completely outfitted with photography gear but want bragging rights after the trip.
