Our guests elated to find how much (or little - depending on your goals) there is to do at the island. With easy access to the mainland there are so many combinations of adventures, cultural immersions and ways to build memories to last a lifetime. Check out just some of what awaits you at the island! 

Explore the culture of Belize - Travel by boat across the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, going past nearby Caye Chapel and Caye Caulker, to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.

(For guests who do not want to snorkel or dive, you have the full day to explore Ambergris Caye.) Then we venture back to San Pedro for lunch at the restaurant of your choice (we can provide recommendations) and an afternoon of shopping and visiting galleries, gift shops, and beach bars/restaurants, before returning to St. George's with plenty of time to unwind and freshen up before dinner.
