  • The best casa on the island!

    "First and foremost I want to say thank you to our host, Wolfgang and his grounds keeper Aiden. Wolfgang was easy and quick to correspond with upon booking and before our arrival. He answered all of our questions and was so helpful especially with suggesting places for excursions. He also had transportation waiting for us at the airport so we didn't have to worry about a thing! Once we arrived he already had goodies for us in the fridge and made suggestions for great restaurants, local spots to check out, and even took us on a short tour through town so we knew what to look for. The casita itself had everything we could ever need/want- full kitchen, AC, comfy furnishings, and much more. It was clean and spacious for me and my husband. We loved the shower too! The high windows let in the natural light and had beautiful views of the palms trees and foliage. Adien the grounds keeper worked so hard to make sure we had a nice and pristine beach everyday and even scooped out the seaweed from the water for us! As far as the island, it is very laid back and full of wonderful people. Everyone was friendly and it had a small town feel. Maria's fruit and veggie stand was the best place for inexpensive fresh fruit, veggies, and juices! The restaurants were great, but the local spots were much cheaper. Snorkeling at Hol Chan reserve and Shark Ray Alley is a must! Driving the golf carts were fun and an adventure in itself. It was the best way to get around the island. San Pedro will definitely be an annual spot for us! And we will be looking to stay at Casita Buena Vista for sure! You can't beat the location, the hospitality, and of course the wonderful amenities! Thanks, Wolfgang for making our short stay so amazing. I wish we had more time to explore... We look forward to next time :)"

  • All Good in at B'ALam

    "Great house on a peaceful beach. Caretaker ,Rhonesh, was very helpful and knowledgeable of Island. We were able to use the resort pool near by at Portifina. Take a fishing boat out early in your stay and have the Captain clean/filet your fish and eat them during your stay. Food can be a little expensive on the Island"

  • the home was awesome, everything you see in the photos about the house and pool are right.

    "We loved the place we stayed at, a little dissapointed at how the beaches of San Pedro were kept up. The weather was absolutely perfect and the restaurants were very good, the average price for two and a couple of drinks for each will run you about 80-90 dollars. An avereage hamberger is about 12.00 american money. All in All I would give San Pedro a 6 oout of 10 because I'm a water lover and it let me down."

  • PERFECTION!

    "Our family just finished a 2 month stay here at Casita Tortuga and the only thing we do regret is not having stayed longer! The home itself is absolutely beautiful inside and out but the backyard is definitely the extra perk. Designed and maintained so beautifully and not to mention being able to enjoy every sunrise and sunset in it is more than you could ask for when choosing the perfect "home away from home." Everything was great and the location of the home was just right- not directly in town yet close enough to walk or even hop on a quick golf cart ride to the store. We personally enjoyed being right outside of the busy San Pedro town area as it was a very convenient yet quiet spot (Perfect!). The neighborhood is quiet and people are very friendly. We felt very safe with our 4 year old son in this location and to be honest, the whole island felt pretty safe. The home owners, Donna & Charlie, were beyond helpful with anything and everything. They literally went out of their way to ensure that we were 100% happy and comfortable in the home which makes all the difference when experiencing a country for the first time. The home was stocked with any and all supplies you would find in your own house and more. All in all, we felt very lucky and blessed to have found SUCH a perfect spot on Ambergris Caye. I would recommend this home to anyone who loves beautiful views and enjoys living amongst the locals as we do.. It's a far better and more memorable experience this way! :) This home truly let's you enjoy the best of Belize without the "touristy" feeling. PERFECTION!"

Before traveling to any country, you should know when to go and a little about the destination. Belize is in Central America where the weather is great all year-round, though it can rain in the afternoons during the summers and spring. Near rainforest areas, you can expect Belize to be verdant and brilliant with colors such as the picturesque mangrove swamps. Ambergris is not on the mainland of Belize; instead, it's a key in the northern section of the country. On one side you have the Caribbean and on the other side is a small bay. The key is 1.6 kilometers wide and 40 kilometers in length. Much of the island is ringed with white, sandy beaches.

Ambergris Caye Villas Near the Maya Community of the Past

Belize, like much of Central America, was founded with the Mayan culture. Ambergris Caye was home to a Mayan community during the pre-Columbian times.

You can really see how the Mayans lived and learn about their culture by visiting Altun Ha and Xunantunich.

Temptation is Just a Short Boat Ride Away at Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye requires you to take a boat ride from the mainland of Belize to the key. Once on the island, you can explore its many attractions. Do not worry about fighting temptation; sky diving, scuba diving, watersports, sailing, zip lines, and more all await you in this tropical paradise. Scuba diving or snorkeling trips leave daily from the docks to reach Belize Barrier Reef.
