  • A wonderful place to for a getaway!!

    "This was my second trip to San Pedro but first time staying at the Belizean Reef charming condos. The room was perfect for my needs, affordable, very clean and comfortable. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. The rooftop deck was awesome!!!! I spent several afternoons lounging around reading my advanced diving book. It is close to town.. so if you want to cook there are several little shops close by but there are also some fabulous restaurants and bars. Mystical Adventure is right outside on the beach and the guys there are great if you want to do some scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing or just have a chat. haha.. Everyone I have met in San Pedro has been amazing and really inviting! If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable little getaway, I would highly recommend this place!"

    "We are ending our week's vacation at this beautiful condo and hate to leave. I am sitting on the large balcony looking out to sea and the view is amazing. The condo is close and convenient to everything, being right beside town but very secure. There is a locked gate on the ground floor so only guests can access. The maid and property managers were very attentive and the condo is spacious and cosy. We used the company right at the front of the condo for a snorkelling excursion and they were great. It is wonderful to have the beach at your doorstep. I would definitely highly recommend this spot. We rented a golf cart one day to explore the island but the rest of the week we walked everywhere that we wanted to go. We loved the Blue Water Grill for eating on the beach just a 2 min walk down the beach. We felt very safe walking on the beach, even at night!!! Can't wait to come back."

  • Relaxing & Gorgeous Views

    "Our stay at the Grand Caribe was very nice. The unit was comfortable and had exceptional views over the pool and ocean. The housekeepers were fabulous and the grounds were immaculate. My only very small issues were that the kitchen doesn't have enough kitchenware to really cook (missing a cutting board, broiler pan, baking dishes and mixing bowls). And being a health fanatic, I HATED cooking on toxic non stick pans. The bar/grill on the grounds was expensive, and the food was so so. But Akbol the restaurant a couple blocks south had exceptional food and really good prices. There were also other bars and restaurants in walking distance and we even did the 2.5 mile walk along the water to town a couple of times. It costs $5 us/person for a water taxi trip one way to town, and Estel's in town has great breakfasts. Sitting out on the dock watching the fish and manta rays (we even saw an eagle ray) was entertaining. The resort staff are all very friendly and always willing to help. We were w/out internet access for over 2 days during our stay and the electricity was out for a day but these types of things aren't in the owners control anyway and the resort did a barbeque lunch the day of the planned power outage."

Ambergris Caye Travel Tips

Ambergris Caye Vacation Rentals at Tropical Paradise

Ambergris Caye, Belize is often considered the dive capital of Central America due to its crystal clear waters and tropical reefs. Ambergris Caye, Belize is just one of the places you might consider vacationing if you have a hankering to see Central America. VRBO can help you set up the perfect getaway with Ambergris Caye vacation rentals. These rentals provide fully equipped kitchens, locations to sandy beaches, and plenty of room for a family reunion. Whether you travel in summer or mid-winter, you know the ocean can provide plenty of entertainment. You may not even have to get out of the hammocks provided at most Ambergris Caye house rentals.

Important Facts of Ambergris Caye House Rentals

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. Archaeologists have found red ceramics, bones, and ruins to support their knowledge about the Mayan culture. Not far from Ambergris Caye villas is a most important Mayan ruin. 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. It is the second largest barrier reef in the world, and the reason Belize is considered one of the world’s greatest places to dive. Tropical fish, reef shark, turtles, and sting rays are just a few inhabitants of the clear blue seas.

Your choice in Ambergris Caye vacation rentals will provide you with a kitchen, and San Padro City is filled with local markets for fresh fish, produce, and other delights. If you want a break on your vacation to relax and dine out, you have plenty of inexpensive restaurants on Ambergris Caye. In fact, Ambergris Caye is Belize’s best place to find numerous restaurants.

Conch season is from September 30 to July 1, while shrimp are in season from June to August. The piece de resistance, however, is the lobster. Lobster is available from mid-July to mid-February. You can even catch your own if you are inclined.
