Ambergris Caye is the largest of Belize’s 200 or so cayes at 35 miles long. The caye consists of collections of mangroves, swamps and lagoons, and beaches. The reef runs up to and touches the island in the northeast at a rocky point.
How you choose to spend your free time on the island is up to you. Many like to go to the gym or spa, of which there are plenty of options on the island. Others like to eat out often and are regulars at the bars and clubs. This is an island whose economy is based on tourism, so there is always a party going on.
Boating, sailing and fishing are fun diversions both day and night, as can be kayaking, scuba diving, or any on-land sports. You could join a local football (soccer) or volleyball group for fun and exercise. For the sport spectating enthusiast, sports bars are not hard to find.
The traditional Belizean culture native to Ambergris has been complimented by its uncompromising acceptance of newcomers. The genuine, community-based attitude of San Pedranos has been well compensated for its willingness to welcome foreigners and allow their own culture to adapt.
The happy result of all this intermingling is cultural vibrancy, enthusiasm, and synergy; the island’s newly arrived children working in conjunction with her strong, island-based family.
Some come just to vacation or all of the year away… others to start businesses… or charities… or families… or to even get dual citizenship and become fully Belizean. And all residents of Belize can avail of her freedom and low-tax—or even tax-free—benefits.
