The Caribbean is an astounding place, where sugary beaches fringe azure seas and the underwater sports are unsurpassed. In too many locations, however, noise, congestion and high prices seem to come with the scenery.

Not in beautiful Belize. This English-speaking country, formerly British Honduras, is one of the overlooked gems of the Caribbean. Mayan ruins, rain forests, reggae and high tea all form part of its quirky, unforgettable charm. When in Belize, most savvy travelers flock to hotels along Ambergris Caye, a comparatively developed area with excellent tourist infrastructure.

What Expect in Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye resorts offer clean, secure rooms, and easy access to recreation. An onsite bar and restaurant is available for guests to drink and dine, and friendly residents and guests only enhance the experience. With so much ocean all around, a swimming pool may seem insignificant, but the best values for the Ambergris Caye vacation dollar will offer a pool, spa, and fitness options. You will find all of these at the Exotic Caye Beach Resort, along with high-speed internet for keeping tabs on the outside world.

Because Ambergris Caye is an island, resorts here typically offer tours and excursions into the mainland interior. A quality Ambergris Caye resort will also offer a grocery store, and may help guests with transportation to nearby San Pedro Town. Golf carts, not cars or motorcycles, are the way to get around here.

No Face Mask? No Problem!

For guests who’ve did the pulse-pounding adrenaline rush of snorkeling, diving, cave-tubing and other active pursuits, they may want to turn to yoga classes and other offerings that promote wellness and balance. At the Exotic Caye Resort, visitors may take a yoga lesson at any level from beginner to advanced. The resort provides complimentary towels, mats, and other accessories. If you’ve never tried yoga and are curious, it’s easy to drop into a class at the Exotic Caye and see for yourself.

Another sport making waves in Belize is fly-fishing. Generally associated with the Rockies and other high-altitude locations,Ambergris Caye fishing is gaining more fans everyday. Aficionados claim fly-fishing combines the meditation found in yoga with the mental discipline needed to psych out the piscine brain. In Belize, you don’t fish for trout or similar small fry; it’s all about fierce big-game fish like tarpon and bonefish. The Exotic Caye Resort practices catch and release, so reef life stays undisturbed. At this resort on Ambergris Caye, both four- and seven-day fly-fishing packages give anglers lessons, practice, and the unparalleled experience of landing one of these proud species.

While Crazy Canuck’s Bar at the Exotic Caye Resort gives revelers a place to dine and party, many restaurants and night spots thrive nearby.

Sample Caribbean specialties like conch or jerk chicken, and don't forget to quaff a local beer or two.

Get into the Swim

At the Exotic Caye Beach Resort, guest services can hook up travelers with the finest snorkel and dive boats. There's nothing like the enormous Blue Hole anywhere else in the world, and you may lose count of the number of turtles, fish and other species darting through the glass-clear seas.
