Destination guide

San Pedro: the jewel of Belize

The island of Ambergris Caye has long been the jewel of Belize's tourism industry. Unlike many of the beachy hotspots along the Caribbean, the island has carefully managed huge influxes of travelers without overdevelopment. If you visit, you'll likely stay in one of the colorful waterfront San Pedro vacation rentals, where you'll be just a half mile or so from Belize's biggest draw – the largest barrier reef in the Western hemisphere, with all its opportunities for diving and snorkeling. If that's not your thing, don't be put off. You can have just as much fun kicking back under the swaying coconut palms.

Things to do

The Mayan heritage of San Pedro

So, you're not going to find any historical site on par with the country's big boys, like Caracol or Xunantunich. That said, it's thought that Ambergris Caye was once a trading outpost for the Mayans and you can find the ancient 2,000-year-old remains of Marco Gonzalez, the largest of 18 small sites on the island. For something a little more current, when you stay in a San Pedro vacation rental, don't miss immersing yourself in the island's legendary nightlife. It doesn't matter if it's a weekday or weekend, there's always a party somewhere in town.


San Pedro is a mecca for scuba divers

If you're a scuba diver, you've come to one of the world's greatest underwater spots. Mile upon mile of barrier reef, packed with every imaginable marine creature, both big and small, awaits you near your San Pedro vacation rental. If you want to spend a day above the water, you won't be hard pushed to find a water sports outfit along the main drag plying everything from paddleboards to jet skis, as well as cruises where unlimited rum and Caribbean sounds perfectly accompany the melting sunset. Even getting around the island is fun with rented golf carts and bicycles being the islanders' main choice of transport.


Consistently good winter weather in San Pedro

Belize has a fairly consistent meteorological timetable and if you score a San Pedro vacation rental between the end of November and mid-April, you'll likely find it bright and sunny, with little chance of rain. It always, rather perfectly, overlaps with the clearest waters. If you want to save a few bucks, skip the winter throngs and don't mind the humidity, you could try to slip onto the island in May or June, the latter being the start of lobster season, when drum barbecues across the island are topped with these delicious crustaceans. Any other time of year, you'll likely be the only foreigner and you'll certainly need an umbrella.

Natural features

Sharks, turtles and manta rays in San Pedro

The ocean around Ambergris Caye teems with marine life and it would be almost criminal not to spend at least a day out under the water. If you're a first-timer, make a beeline for Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley, a reserve whose residents include schools of harmless nurse sharks, sweeping manta rays and huge loggerhead turtles which eat fishermen's conch scraps. If you're in luck – and you'll need it with these elusive creatures – you might spot a giant manatee feeding on the sea grass, among other creatures of the deep.
