Family of 4 heading to belize in early August and I dont know what caye to stay on. Please help. I was going to try to rent a VRBO place to stay, I want nice beaches to wade in and snorkel, restaraunts and shops to window shop. I dont want seclusion and I dont want super packed crowded bumping into people tryjng to sell me stuff every 15 minutes. I would love to rent a scooter or golf cart. We want to stay in a nice accomadations not low budget accomadations. We dont want to take a 2 hour water taxi ride to get there, too long. Ight tame a day trip to mainland for cave tour.
I am staying at the Spindrift Hotel and would like to go out on a hobie cat ….Where is the nearest place to walk and go sailing?
So my boyfriend and I are from the U.S. and we're thinking about moving to Ambergris Caye, Belize in the next couple of years. Could someone please give me a little information about the things I'll need before making this move? Also could I get an average number on the amount of money I'll need to have saved before making this move? Are there many job opportunities for people coming from another country there? I know I'll need to get a work permit how long will that take can I apply for one before I move?
My friend has free room for me for 5 days in belize next week if I want to go... Will I be bored out of my mind for that long there? What will I do ? Will I meet girls? How much money will I be spending if my room is free?
Should I fly or take the 3 hour boat from Belize city to ambergris...please give your reasons why...
Hello - headed to Ambergris Ca in a couple of weeks with 10 other family members.
We are clear on using bottled water for everything. Curious about the fruit and veggies there. Do you suggest cooking everything or will we be safe with raw fruit and veggies.
Also where can we buy good seafood for cooking dinner at the resort?
Thanks so much - Virginia
Are there mopeds to rent?
I will be spending the month of October on Ambergris.
I am bringing my cat with me.
If I want to spend 4 to 5 days on the mainland are there kennels or (preferably pet sitters that are trustworthy
Is it possible to find a pet sitter or kennel for a cat on Ambergris
This is my first time to visit Belize, not sure what to expect if I decide to visit from Oct 8 - Oct 15th. I enjoy water acitivities and would love to visit mayan sites and do some hikings when weather permits, with that being said, my main concern is the likelyhood of being able to do all these outdoor activities in mid October. I've heard anytime is a good time to visit Belize but the hurricane season could rain a lot and ruin the experience. Any suggestions and/or past experiences are appreciated.
We are looking to bring hard salami, beef jerky, some snacks like popcorn, jars of dip, etc. How about a bottle or 2 of alcohol? Is there any issue with this? Will customs give us a bad time?
My husband and I are going at the last week of May. Very excited! Staying at changes in latitude I think close to San Pedro. Want to snorkel as much as possible! Sny info appreciated!! Have traveled the world and last March 2013 spent a long time in Thailand and some time on Kaoh Tao! It was amazing as is all of Thailand!! Beth
I have been told to stay North of San Pedro as the Mosquitoes and sand flies were less than South. Have looked at several nice properties south but am avoiding them. Is this correct? Currently looking at Grand Caribe
Please help!! My husband and I are making last-minute plans to vacation from July 1-6. We want a nice beach vacation, not overly touristy but not too remote. We'd love to go somewhere with clear water and comfortable beaches, great snorkeling (right off the beach and/or cheap and easy to get to), and some kind of small town with local restaurant options.
We think we've narrowed it down to 2 good options: Ambergris Caye and Placencia. I understand that Ambergris Caye is a little more touristy than Placencia, but it doesn't seem like it's gotten too bad. Which place has the better beaches, the better snorkeling, the more interesting town? Or, is there anything else that we should be considering in comparing the two? Any information or opinions to help tip the scales would be useful!
(Side note: the two hotels were looking at are Corona del Mar in AC, and Maya Beach Hotel in Placencia.)
Does anyone have experience with Ak'bol Yoga Resort on Ambergris Caye. I am thinking of spending some time there in December and would welcome guidance.
This is our first time in Belize and I we are traveling to Ambergris Cay/Staying at Legacy Beach Resort. Can you tell me if any good seafood places on the Island?

Hi. Considering a trip to Ambergris Caye next Spring. Looking for a nice bungalow for two on the beach where the water is accessible - no sea grass. Luxury is not essential. Have looked at Hotel del Rio, Paradise Hotel, as well as Coral Bay Villas and Captain Morgan's. All suggestions welcome!

I worry about the water especially for the pregnant daughter...we all want to relax and read, walk and fish, swim and snorkel...but nothing beyond that...it's a chance to get away from winter in the northeast of US...do we need repellant for bugs? I need a response quickly since I will be packing this week for departure next weekend...this is a first for all of us, so I want it to be memorable...shall we stay in the resort restaurants for dinner...which onces are close to Xanadu that won't require too much walking.
