Where to stay in Ambergris Caye?

Waking up on the Caye means astounding views of blue ocean and white sand.

While the natural beauty on Ambergris Caye is breathtaking, you'll also be astonished by the considerable selection of luxury accommodations. Not sure where to start? Don't sweat it. The Caye is small enough to walk and bike from a resort to San Pedro’s bustling city center, but large enough to find quiet spaces for you to relax.

Here’s a quick peek at a few of the best places to stay when you vacay on Ambergris Caye.
