Some of the smartest investors in the world are buying property in Ambergris Caye, Belize. There are several reasons investors are interested in this location. One is that the real estate is affordable and the demand is increasing by the day.

By getting in early, they will have an opportunity to either rent out their property or sell it for a profit down the road. Doing both at the same time is also possible. Another big reason investors are so interested is because there are many things to do on Ambergris Caye.

If You Like the Water then You Will Fall in Love with Ambergris Caye

One of the most popular activities is to sail on a catamaran. You can sit with your feet dangling in the water as your catamaran sails past the white sandy beaches of the caye. You can make this a romantic voyage with just you and your significant other, or you can make it a party atmosphere with all your friends and drinks on hand. Either way, it’s going to be memorable. Other ways to explore the island from the sea include jet-skiing, kayaking, canoeing, para sailing and windsurfing. You can also go kite-surfing, but it’s difficult to explore when you’re kite-surfing. You will be too focused on the task at hand, which is having fun while in mid-air.

Under the Sea Exploration

If you would like to explore under the sea, then you will be happy to know that Ambergris Caye is home to a great barrier reef. Scuba diving is very popular here, and there are many professional companies that can guide you. If you prefer a simpler approach, then you can snorkel.

Other water-based activities include cave exploring, river-tubing and swimming. This is a water lover’s paradise, especially if you fall into the adventurous category. It’s important to note that those who love the water and visit Ambergris Caye often rave about their experiences. Having an opportunity to experience all these activities in warm and crystal-clear water helps a great deal.

If you prefer to stay dry, then don’t worry; there are still dozens of things to do on Ambergris Caye. One of your first stops should be a Mayan Center. This is one of the most riveting experiences you will find anywhere in the world. Not many people get to see the ruins of ancient culture almost completely intact.


Ambergris Caye is also home to over 500 species of birds and lots of butterflies. For the best way to spot birds, visit Lalas Bird Sanctuary. There is a perch for people, which allows for superb viewing. If you want to see butterflies, then head to the Butterfly Jungle. For more nature and wildlife viewing, go for a walk on the Ecological Nature Trail. You can also walk, bike or take a golf cart to a secluded waterfall.

Other nature-related activities include the Belize Zoo, wildlife refuges, a seaside picnic and reef camping. Many of your friends and family might have interesting travel stories, but how many of them can say they have been reef camping? Another option is to head to the south side of the island, which is quieter and home to a lagoon. Here you might spot a crocodile or two.

Traditional Activities

There is a championship golf course, bicycle rentals, village festivals, nightclubs, restaurants, movie theaters, shopping, live music, Mayan Ruins and beautiful sunrises. Of course, sun-tanning on the beach is also highly recommended.

Come down to Ambergris Caye for the most memorable experience of your lifetime. Better yet, buy a property that you can rent out and then sell for profit down the road.
