Itinerary

Day 1: Ambergris Caye Island

Stop At: San Pedro, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize Cayes
Our group tour starts on the island of Ambergris Caye. It can be reached from the capital Belize City via a 1.5-hour boat ride or a very short and cheap flight. You would be picked up at the dock or at the airport, your choice. Tour members would be arriving at different times. Some may be jet lagged while others, not. Those who arrive early enough and have some energy could join us as we explore this island by golf cart. Ambergris Caye is commonly referred to as ‘Isla Bonita’ (beautiful island) thanks to the singer Madonna, who made reference to this island and its turquoise seascapes in a 1987 hit.
Duration: 15 minutes

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: We finalize room bookings about 10 days before departure. We choose only quality accommodation. We'll keep you posted.

Day 2: Hol Chan Marine Reserve & Caye Caulker Island

Stop At: Hol Chan Marine Reserve, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye Belize
Today we should be making a daytrip via a quick boat ride (4 miles/6.4 kilometers) to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve followed by a 30-minute boat ride to Caye Caulker.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve gives us the opportunity to swim with sharks and sting rays. These creatures have a great tolerance for snorkelers and look forward to being fed scraps of food. Caye Caulker measures about 5 miles (8 kilometers) north to south by less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) east to west. There are only 3 roads in town, all of which are sandy. Despite its size, there are over 50 hotels and a number of restaurants and shops. Caye Caulker is quite popular especially with backpackers. The boat ride back to Ambergris Caye takes about 30 minutes.

*Note that in the event the boat company cancels the daytrip tour to the Great Blue Hole, which happens on occasion due to bad weather, etc., we would offer you a suitable alternative for the day. A popular option is a visit to Secret Beach, which is about a 45-minute drive away from downtown (a.k.a. San Pedro) Ambergris Caye. Alternatively, if a plane ride over the Great Blue Hole is available and if you are interested in that, we could offer it to you at an upcharge of $103 USD per person.
