Ambergris Caye : just another island of Belize?
Among the others hundred islands – or cayes – of Belize, Ambergris Caye is known to be a hot sport for nautical and outdoor water activities.
Located in northern Belize in Central America, this island is a narrow strip of paradise surrounded by azure Caribbean waters offering a real escape from the reality. It is approximately 36 miles long and was once part of the Yucatan Peninsula. Mayan have also occupied this territory in ancient times – over 1500 years ago – and their footprints can still be seen today with the channel they have built which separates the North of Belize’s Ambergris Caye from the South of the Mexican Peninsula at Xcalak in the Quintana Roo area (see map below).
Ambergris Caye isn’t just another island of Belize but a singular territory, separated by more than 6 miles of warm sea waters from its mother country.
San Pedro is the one and only town on the island of Ambergris Caye and is a hub for maritime trade for centuries.
What to do in Ambergris Caye
Ambergris Caye offers the typical attractions and activites that one expect to find when travelling to the Western Caribbean.
Fishing, diving, snorkelling, hiking and ecotourism are the most famous outdoor activities here. Indeed, the island’s geography combines so many benefits such as two beautiful coasts – one facing the Caribbean sea and the Cayman Islands and the other one protected by the mainland’s relief – and a not too tropical climate that enjoying outdoor and nautical activities there take on a unique dimension compare to any other place!
On another hand, the rich variety of things to do in San Pedro Town such as dining and shopping makes Ambergris Caye the gateway to Belize.
