There is so much more to a beach resort than lounging in the sun, sipping your favorite umbrella cocktail. Here on Ambergris Caye you are at the epicenter of Belize’s marine activities and have the privilege of capitalizing on the diversity created by Belize’s Barrier Reef. You can plunge in and get wet, or stay on the surface and enjoy the Caribbean Sea from above. From snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving to fishing, sailing and kayaking there is plenty for you enjoy!
From beginner to advanced there are a number of ways for you to enjoy the warm waters of the Caribbean. You can snorkel at the popular and famous Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley, or dive one of 30+ dive sites located just outside the reef. And of course the diver in you should demand to experience the Great Blue Hole and Turneffe Atoll day trips.
Enjoying the water and staying dry sounds absurd, but it really isn’t! The barrier reef creates a bed of calm, sheltered waters that are ideal for sailing and fishing. Sailing trips can include snorkeling, or just time under sun and sail. Due to the diversity of the reef eco-system, fly fishing, deep sea fishing and reef fishing can all be enjoyed.
Mainland activities can easily be enjoyed on a day trip from the island. With mountains, jungles and rivers there are plenty of things to see and do. Take a trip back in time to explore the ruins of the great Mayan civilization. With over 20 sites in Belize the most excavated and popular are Altun Ha, Cahal Pech, Caracol, Lamanai and Xunantunich. Often times they can be combined with other mainland adventures such as zip lining, cave tubing, or visiting the amazing Belize Zoo.
