With so few people and so much space, Belize's main attraction is its incredible, largely untouched natural environment. The steamy rainforest and spectacular coral reef, along with a chain of tiny paradise islands, are within touching distance of the United States, with Miami being only a two-hour flight away.

 

The highlight to most visitors are the cayes, a necklace of islands strung the length of the coral reef that offer some of the best snorkeling, diving and fishing in the world. Unforgettable islands, the cayes range from upbeat tourist spots to stranded desert isles, where the only other life you are likely to see will be the pelicans, palm trees and crabs.

 

Ambergris Caye is the ideal place to experience both Belize's pristine sea life and its unspoiled jungles, caves, ruins, and rivers. Perfect for both the outdoors enthusiasts and nature lovers, as well as those who simply want to kick off their shoes and relax in a hammock that is gently swaying in the Caribbean breeze while listening to the soothing sounds of the sea.

 

San Pedro Town is named for the patron saint of fishermen. Just offshore, snorkelers and divers admire delicate sea fans, iridescent sponges and teeming corals all glowing with color. Pet a graceful stingray or swim with the sharks. Rent a sailboat, windsurf, or jet ski. Cast a line and come back with dinner. Sometimes the airstrip feels like a street party with flights buzzing right into the center of town. The only sounds generally heard along the beach include softly breaking waves and exotic birds.

 

The tropical climate averages 80 degrees F, with winters down to 60 degrees F and dry. Summers up to 95 degrees F with brief, refreshing showers. Wear light clothing except in the jungle where long sleeves and pants offer protection. Pack a sweater for winter evenings in the mountains. The time is GMT - 6, the same as US Central Time. Daylight Savings Time is not observed.
