Posted by Valeria Espinoza on Jan 8, 2013 9:00:09 AM

Ambergris CayeWhen it comes to beautiful places in the world, few areas can beat Ambergris Caye in the Caribbean Sea. This is the biggest island of Belize, situated northeast of the main island. Visitors will find a rich history as well as activities such as diving and fishing, all located near the exotic Caye Beach Resort.

About the Island

The Caye is one of many hundred islands north of Belize in Central America. The island is about 36 miles long and only about 1 mile wide. Situated on the Belize Barrier Reef, which is almost 200 miles of coral reef, the island offers many scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities. Some adventurous visitors can try sky diving over the island and its turquoise seas as well.

The northern tip of the island is called Mexico Rocks and nearly touches the reef itself. In addition, San Pedro Lagoon is on the western side of the island and connects to the Caribbean via a little saltwater river, nearly reaching the center of San Pedro, the main town on the island.

Other attractions on the island include warm, white beaches, mangrove forests, lagoons and tropical savannahs. In addition, there is shopping and dining available in San Pedro.

Hotels and Resorts

When visiting the island, there are several San Pedro Belize hotels and resorts. Most visitors prefer to select the Exotic Caye Beach Resort by booking a room online through www.belizeisfun.com, thanks to comfortable rooms that come equipped with a small kitchen. This allows guests to buy food in town and avoid eating out for all meals. In addition, many guests enjoy being able to make their own coffee in the morning and relax while looking out at the view from the resort.

When researching potential hotels and resorts, be certain that the hotel or resort offers air conditioning in each room, as well as cable television, night security, high speed Wi-Fi, laundry and maid service. Check out the resort amenities as well. For example,look for a freshwater swimming pool, a beach bar and even a private boat dock. Seek resorts with a honeymoon suite, as well as one, two and three-bedroom suites available.

Activities

Simply put, it would not be a true visit to Belize without spending some time exploring the beautiful and amazing jungle here. Other available activities include tubing, exploring ancient ruins, fly-fishing and diving the Blue Hole, which is a natural limestone cave over 400 feet deep in the Belize Barrier Reef. The first person to explore the Hole was Jacques Cousteau, which means that visitors enjoy a piece of history as well as spectacular beauty.

Many guests also enjoy taking advantage of the local 18-hole golf course, sailing, kayaking and snorkeling.

Come to Belize!

When it comes to visiting one of the Belize islands and choosing among the San Pedro Belize hotels such as the Exotic Caye Beach Resort, tourists are encouraged to select a relaxed, comfortable resort with many amenities and activities. Enjoy spending time in one of the most beautiful areas of the world and participating in fun and exciting activities like golfing, scuba diving, fishing, snorkeling, shopping and sightseeing.
