A True Paradise Exists on Ambergris Caye

Posted by Valeria Espinoza on Oct 2, 2012 8:28:27 AM

Some people dream of living in paradise and do nothing about it. Others dream about living in paradise and make it a reality. If you fit into the former category, then consider changing your outlook on life so you can enjoy all the greatest things this world has to offer. If you fall into the latter category, then pack your bags and get ready to depart because paradise has been found.

You may have heard that “paradise has been found” on several occasions in the past, but once you read about Ambergris Caye, you’re going to understand why. This might be the largest caye island, but it’s still a small island with only 15,000 people living on it. The sense of community is unparalleled, with completely different walks of live living in harmony. There is no judgment when it comes to race or religion. Everything and everyone is accepted.

Ambergris Caye Amenities

Amenities on Ambergris Caye will trump any amenities you will find on other Caribbean islands. What makes this even more impressive is that real estate here is more affordable than on other Caribbean islands making it an ideal location.

Amenities on Ambergris Caye are plentiful, but what stands out more than anything else are the beautiful beaches. Since this isn’t a big tourist spot like other Caribbean islands, you’re never going to have to deal with big crowds on the beach. Think of this as your own tropical oasis, where you can sip on a cocktail from a lounge chair while reading a book and enjoying the gentle sea breeze. To your left and right, there might be palm trees sticking out from the sand, providing you with comfortable shade. Below you will be soft powdery sand. Above you will be the sun, but it won’t be too hot. Temperatures here are often in the mid-80s. If you want to go for a swim, don’t hesitate. The water is always between 70 and 84 degrees.

Grand Baymen, the #1 Community on Ambergris Caye

After sitting on a private beach, you can walk back through the beautiful Baymen Gardens then take a 10-minute walk into San Pedro Town. You won’t have to worry about traffic because almost everyone uses a bicycle or golf cart. In town, you will find fresh coffee, wine stores, stylish restaurants, cyber cafes, nightclubs and more. But don’t let the presence of cyber cafes fool you. The island does offer high-speed internet access from homes, condos, and hotels.

One day, you might want to switch up your routine and head to the west side of the island where you will find a secluded lagoon. Nothing on earth could be more peaceful. If you prefer more adventure, then consider diving the Blue Hole, which is a well-known spot amongst professional divers across the world. If you want to snorkel, there’s a barrier reef only a half-mile offshore. Other activities include bird watching, hiking, windsurfing, jet-skiing, sailing, swimming and exploring the Mayan ruins. Learn about other things to do on the island. 

If you live in the Grand Baymen community, then you will have even more to do. There is a three-tier pool, lit tennis courts and a fitness center. If all of this sounds like perfection to you, that’s because it is. Contact Grand Baymen to plan your first trip to Ambergris Caye today.
