Belizean Shores Resort

And Marina, Cayo (Jul 26).

It is said that if you swim in the clear Caribbean waters of Cayo, you’ll see the missing piece of paradise. This is the main reason why a lot of people book their holidays in Belize at this location. It is located on the Spanish Lookout of the island and is also a favorite among sailors.

The snorkeling and diving is excellent and the sealife is rich. It is also a good place to visit with kids because of the numerous amusement attractions such as water slides and the ferris wheel.

The island is also a great destination to enjoy the sun and surf with your friends.

It’s a great place to relax and have fun surrounded by nature and the peaceful surroundings.

St Georges Caye Resort

St Georges Caye is a great anchor point for digging into the heart of Caye Caulker, or swinging onto a boat to visit the other islands in the area. The resort itself is small but welcoming, and its beachfront bar and expansive dining room help to provide the perfect atmosphere for fun in the sun.

On the side of the island where the resort sits, there are plenty of opportunities to get into the water, whether you’re interested in snorkeling in the deep waters right in front of the resort or taking kayak excursions to the area’s many surrounding cays.

The resort has its own onsite dive center, and you’re welcome to use the equipment at your leisure.

St Georges Caye provides unique opportunities for snorkeling to those looking to see the coral reefs in their indigenous state, as well as to those looking for a more guided dive experience.

The anchor point for Caye Caulker’s many local tours, you’ll meet many of the area’s locals and dive masters who will be on hand to show you the best places to see while on your excursions.

Belizean Dreams Resort

Location: Cayo District

The Belizean Dreams resort is a private eco-resort located 8 miles past the village of San Juan. It has a land area of 6000 acres that includes the Pakana Reserve. The land is reclaimed from the World Bank (under the umbrella of the Cayo Environmental Resource Foundation or CERF in Belize).

Each of the three guest rooms has its own pool, and the accommodations are basic, but everything works very well. The facilities are clean and the resort itself is very safe.

Located on a private beach on an island in the center of the San Pedro Canal, it is surrounded by jungle and natural beauty. It is a peaceful retreat that offers a rare juxtaposition between nature and the community it lives within.

It is only a fifteen-minute drive away from Monkey River Town. As it is a private resort, it offers a certain privacy that many other places in Belize cannot.

There are three restaurants at the resort’s main building. It features an outdoor pool and an indoor Jacuzzi, and has an on-site dive facility.

Its restaurants are well-regarded. They offer Belizean food, and in fact, at lunch hour, the small main dining area turns into an open-air market, where patrons can buy fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, eggs, and other groceries and food items.
