Five Reasons to Return to Ambergris Caye (Belize)

We visited Ambergris Caye (Belize) six years ago and planned to return this summer. I became a certified Open Water scuba diver in the Island, and I would never forget my first dives in Belize. The island is 40 Kilometer in length – it’s just like the distance from Minneapolis to the border of Wisconsin State. It’s a small island but charming and inviting. Followings are our reasons to return to Ambergris Caye.

Fun People to Scuba Dive with

Belizeans in Ambergris Caye are easy going and friendly. I had positive experiences with Belizeans, from the immigration officer (who kept my Indonesian passport for a night since I did not have a visa to enter Belize) to Belizean scuba divers.

Beautiful White Sandy Beach

No need to explain here, as the picture speaks for itself. One thing to appreciate: the entire beach in the Island is for public!

Delicious Fresh Food & Beautiful Hotels next to the Beach

One thing I remember, the Belizean ceviche was fresh and tasty! Hotels and resorts in the Island are majority located next to the beach, and as well the restaurants!

Impressive Marine Life

I hope I will meet these amazing animals again. The best locations for scuba diving and snorkeling in Ambergris Caye are Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan Marine Reserve.

Exploring the Island with Golf Cart

Unfortunately, we did not explore the Island on our first visit. This time, we hope to explore the Island from the south to the north with the golf cart, and hopefully no rains during our visit 🙂

  1. Selamat pagi Indah. An apology for not not visiting for a while… Been traveling a bit. In Paris now. London next week. 😊 How have you been? Fully adaptd to your new home? Going back to indonesia any time for a holiday? Take care.

      • Hello! We just crossed path! I’m back in Mexico. Paris and London were very nice and safe. No idiot blowing himself up. Let us touch wood. A shame we did not coincide in mexico, but maybe you went to cancun directly? How was diving in Belize? Went there a few years ago, snorkeled a bit. Lovely. 🙂

  2. Noteworthy lodgings with a brilliant shoreline, nourishment and marine life. In addition, it’s additionally exceptional to you on an individual level.No wonder you returned there… :- )Looks totally shocking! I’ve for a long while been itching to scuba plunge… perhaps sometime in the not so distant future!

  3. We enjoyed Belize when we went on a cruise. You reminded me of the great beauty! Your post was incredible showing all aspects of the island!
