1. Discover Marine Life Diving and Snorkeling on Ambergris Caye

Without a doubt, one of the most popular ways to spend time on Ambergris Caye is to be under the water. Thanks to opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving, visitors can see the many different fish and marine life that live in the stunning reef surrounding the caye. You can rent snorkeling equipment and swim right out from the coast, but you can also take boat tours to incredible reef destinations like Shark Ray Alley and the Hol Chan Marine Preserve.

2. Listen to Live Music

Although Ambergris Caye is far from a crowded destination, it does boast some exciting nightlife. In San Pedro, you can visit some of the bars and clubs like Big Daddy's, Jaguar Temple and Barefoot Iguana, each of which boasts some great live music. Listen for the traditional Punta music, which features heavy drum beats and a rhythm that you will find it easy to dance to.

3. Head Out For Deep-Sea Fishing

While many of the local residents enjoy fishing on Ambergris Caye's saltwater flats, it is much more exciting to head out to sea for bigger fish.

For serious anglers, catching these large fish is truly the experience of a lifetime.
