  • "UnBelizeable" ... Beautiful!

    "Dear Nancy and Rob, Thank you a million times over for sharing your lovely Belizean home with us. It truly surpassed our expectations! We were greeted at Grand Caribe by the most extraordinarily cheery and wonderful staff who checked us in, gave us our golf cart keys (loved the golf cart) and led us to C4 (Spectacular, to say the least. That view from your balcony is priceless.) The walk through the court yard to the C4 rendered the most spectacular views of gorgeous coconut trees swaying in the breeze, the lovely manicured and landscaped lawns, the banana bunches dangling from vines, the pools, the ocean...Oh how we miss it! Once settled in, we dined at Rain (WOW! We're still salivating over the ceviche!) and had our 'Welcome to Grand Caribe" complimentary drinks. The next morning we booked our dives, fishing trip, etc. directly with the concierge. The Reef, The Blue Hole, Hol Chan, Lighthouse and a Night Dive were all amazing! We dined at Elvi's Kitchen, Lick's Beachside Cafe, Estel's, Waruguma, Blue Water Grill, and twice at Rain (who cooked our catch from the fishing trip into the most delicious Japanese fusion dish and conch ceviche). We even visited the Chicken Drop. We loved San Pedro, met many locals, and I (Cuban) met many compatriots who live and/or work there! This trip was just absolutely UnBelizeable! We can't wait to return to Ambergris Caye and revisit C4. Again, muchas gracias por una experiencia inolvidable. Ana and Joe P."

  • Best vacation ever! (2 couples)

    "I had read the numerous reviews on the Adagio Villa( prior to our stay) and believe me it has stood up to all the kind words mentioned of this luxury villa.We have had the fortune to stay at numerous villas and this one ranks at the top. Dennis was professional and extremely detailed while booking the villa and catered to all of our requests. Spectacular location , sunshine and beautiful home were overshadowed by the caring staff of the villa which really made the difference. Camille (aka Natasha) did a spectacular job and is a great cook ,plus lots of fun! Florencio also was a great help with the water sports ,kayaking ,snorkelling,etc., plus a lot of fun. Both were a great reference for guiding us on the island throughout our stay. Over all a great vacation and the staff and owner of the the villa were first class. Looking forward to our next visit to the villa , as we will be a repeat for sure at this property!!!"

  • Relaxing getaway

    "My husband and I had a great experience staying in the condo. Everything was very nice and the location was wonderful. I loved being so close to the pool and the ocean. Also it was so convenient being near the corner store! When we arrived we had a golf cart waiting for us and didn't have to worry about the hassle of trying to find a place to rent from. The only critique i have is the internet is extremely slow, so don't plan on using WiFi - but with so much to do nearby, you shouldn't need to. Also, if you are wanting to go downtown often, the condo is a bit far away."

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.

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.
