Ambergris Caye On your Own

It's the Belize you won't believe! After meeting your guide for this Belize excursion, you will be driven to the nearby airport where you will board a Cessna Caravan (12 to 14 seats) for your scenic 20-minute flight. During this Belize tour at 1500 feet, and with windows under the wing, you will be able to see the many islands that dot the world's second-largest barrier reef system.

Upon arrival in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, you will have approximately 4.5 hours of free time on your own to shop for local gifts, sample the local cuisine, relax on the beach or explore and see why many describe it as the Caribbean of 30 years ago.

Ambergris Caye (pronounced Am-BUR-gris or Am-BUR-grease Key) is the largest of more than 200 cays along the coast of Belize. The island is 25 miles long and a little over one mile from side to side at its widest point. Its history included Maya, European Pirates, and Mexican Refugees who fled during the Caste War. Their descendants make up most of the island's population today. Once dependent on the coconut, then fishing industries, the islands major source of income these days is tourism.

San Pedro Town, the only inhabited area on the island, is a small bustling village complete with colorfully painted wooden houses of Mexican and Caribbean decor. They are now home to gift shops, boutiques, bars, cafes, and restaurants. A short walk in town (which is only three streets deep) and you can feel the friendliness of the people and see the ease of their lifestyle as no shoes, tee-shirts, and shorts are the typical island dress code. The people of the island speak English, Spanish, Creole, and Maya all at the same time, making it their own island dialect. Most transportation is by foot, bike or golf cart.

San Pedro's restaurants range from seafood to burritos; from Italian to Chinese, but when in Belize, try the local cuisine (fish, barbecue, rice, and beans, etc.).

There are no shopping malls here. You will find quaint little gift shops and street-side vendors offering tropical apparel as well as the work of local artisans. These include local paintings, pottery, sculptures, handmade dolls, hats, baskets, beach chairs and hammocks.

All too soon, it is time to return to the airport for your flight back to Belize City.
