Ambergris Caye



Ambergris Caye is the largest of almost 1000 Cayes of the northern waters of Belize, measuring 25 miles in length.  It is located just 35 miles northeast of Belize City and can be reached by a 20 minute plane ride or an hour and a half boat ride.

On the east side of Ambergris Caye lies the Belize Barrier Reef.  At the far north portion of Ambergris Caye lies what is called "Mexico Rocks" where the reef nearly touches the shore of the island.

San Pedro is the major settlement on the island and is located on the southern portion of the island.  The town itself measures about a mile in length and is only a few blocks wide.  Between 4000-7000 locals live on the island. There are three main streets:  Front St., Middle St., and Back St.

The main mode of transportation is golf carts, however there are some vehicles on the island. The streets are filled with shops, galleries, local resturants, dive shops, and hotels.
