Visitors on their first trip to Belize will most likely want to get to beautiful Ambergris Caye at some point during their trip. There are two ways of getting from the mainland of Belize out to the Cayes.
When you arrive in San Pedro, you will notice that there are 3 main modes of transportation: golf cart, bicycle, and walking. One of the factors that will likely determine which mode of transportation you choose is the location of your hotel and your comfort level of exploring a new town.

Ah yes! Each New Year is indeed a fresh start. A new beginning. It is a time to reflect on what we accomplished the previous year and what we still need to or would like to put into motion in the new year. At the proverbial ‘end of the day’, it really is all about setting goals more than making resolutions. Since resolutions tend to fall by the wayside fairly quickly, like going on a diet, setting goals makes so much more sense. So, whether we have short-term or long-term goals, or something in between, setting goals for ourselves is the best approach to bringing about the most amount of positive change.
Which brings me to a subject I am really excited about. Belize has taken steps to put into motion a full service International Airport on Northern San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. This will be Belize’s second international airport and will make traveling to San Pedro so much easier. It will also bring long-term socio-economic benefits to this beautiful country. There are definitely some great things in store for Belize and I can appreciate the goals these remarkable people are setting.
It is a goal of ours each year to put a smile on kid’s faces. This past Christmas, Grand Baymen teamed up with our sister organizations, Georgetown Trust and Caye International Bank to help raise over $7,500 USD for The Living Word Church’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive. There was much merriment and many smiles on the 1,000 young faces that all received a Christmas gift and cupcake from Santa himself. Thank you all so very much for your generosity and for your donations to this wonderful cause.
