Many travelers to Belize ask whether it's possible to split a one-week vacation between the jungles and cayes. Absolutely! If you're looking to plan a "rainforest and reef" vacation, you can pack in plenty of fun in the sun in just a few days on Ambergris Caye, or La Isla Bonita. If you've got three days to spend in San Pedro, here's an itinerary to introduce you to the highlights of Ambergris Caye.

Erin D's City Tips

  • Belize has very strict regulations on certain foods, primarily lobster and conch in San Pedro. Adhere to the laws as it's illegal to catch, consume, buy, or order out of season.
  • Some resorts, restaurants, and bars close for a period of time during slow season, often in August and/or September, so verify a business is open if it's on your must-visit list.
  • Slow season on Ambergris Caye corresponds with Atlantic Hurricane Season, and it's not uncommon to find tours canceled during inclement weather.
  • Belize currency is a standard 2 BZ to 1 USD. If you plan to use US dollars, ensure they aren't torn or wrinkled as they won't be accepted.
  • Tipping is customary in San Pedro, with 10% being the minimum usually offered.
  • If you're interested in renting a golf cart, I recommend Isla Bonita Golf Cart Rentals at Caye Mart near the roundabout just north of town.

    Meat pies are a Belizean breakfast specialty you won't want to miss. Boogie's Belly is the best place to get them in San Pedro now. Be warned -- they are popular, so get there bright and early or you might find them completely sold out.

    If you're a certified diver, or looking to complete your certification while in San Pedro, head to Chuck and Robbie's on the beach just north of town. Chuck and Robbie's is the primary dive shop I use, and I'm certainly not alone. Many repeat travelers, expats, and locals all dive with Robbie and the staff. I did my certification with them years ago, and Robbie's instructor was professional and great at calming people who might feel anxious during the check-out dives.

    Erin D Says:

    One of the more iconic ways to spend a few hours of your first afternoon in San Pedro is to lounge in the tubes at Palapa Bar. Recently Palapa Bar relocated from north of the bridge to the Wet Willy’s Dock in Boca Del Rio, right on the beach near Blue Tang Inn, Sandbar Hostel, and Melt Café. Palapa Bar is one of the more popular hangouts for tourists, expats, and locals alike. Palapa Bar has a varied menu of bar food appetizers and entrees to choose from, loungers on the deck, and tubes in the water. Bartenders like Marcial, Chee, and Abner will take good care in ensuring you have an expertly mixed cocktail in hand!

    Elvi's is one of San Pedro's most iconic restaurants. Chef Jennie has done a great job of bringing traditional Belizean dishes to life, with a concentration on traditional Mayan flavors, much of which has been lost in culture today. I've sampled a large portion of her menu so far, and am hard-pressed to find something I don't enjoy.

    Breakfast at Estel's on the beach is a must at least one of your vacation days in San Pedro. And, if you're a later riser, breakfast is served all day so you're still in luck. The fry jacks and homemade tortillas are two of my favorite things to get with any breakfast item. If you're a carb lover and can't choose, eat them both! On Sunday, Charles has his BBQ grill ready to go so come in for some amazing ribs, pork chops, chicken, and sausage.

Hol Chan is the oldest marine reserve in Belize and a popular spot for snorkeling tours and check-out dives. The once depleted fishing area has begun thriving again thanks to its protected status, and there are over 160 species of fish and over 40 types of coral in the area now.

    While Pedro's is a backpacker-style hostel and hotel, the bar is very popular with many locals and expats. If you love Jagermeister, and even if you don't, it wouldn't be a trip to San Pedro without stopping in for at least one drink at Pedro's Inn. Pedro's has an impressive wall of photo-worthy empty Jager bottles, and if you're brave enough, ring the bell and buy the entire bar a round of Jager shots.

    If you liked meat pies and want to try another local Belizean breakfast specialty, stop by Neri's Tacos for some rolled tacos. The simple concoction of meat, onions, and chili rolled in tortillas is a beloved breakfast staple here. If you don't like spicy food, order them without chili and add your own hot sauce as desired.

    Start your day off by visiting some of Belizean's local artisans, and checking out the variety of products available on Ambergris Caye. Caye Coffee Roasting Co. is located south of town, and Paul and Marci are always eager to show guests around and talk about their roasting process. If you're a coffee lover, it's a great opportunity to meet with an artisan roasting company. Caye Coffee makes three varieties, Front Street (more mild, breakfast blend), Back Street (more bold), and Middle Street (the best of both). Be sure to bring some coffee back home with you. If you run out before you leave and Caye Coffee isn't open, you can purchase the coffee in most grocery stores and at the Belize International Airport now.

    Apart from snorkeling and/or diving along Belize's Barrier Reef system, you should take a sunset cruise at least once during your stay.

The party-style catamaran has a bar and is perfectly outfitted to take in one of Ambergris Caye's signature sunsets.

Choose from a variety of options like mixed, bean, pumpkin, beans, shrimp, spinach, and lobster (when in season). Try a variety and/or order off their expansive menu.

    Finish off your evening in San Pedro by visiting one of the island's best beach bars. Wayo is originally from the Cayo District in Belize, but has been living on the island of Ambergris Caye for years. He is affectionately known as "Wayo from Cayo," and has a loyal following from locals and expats to repeat travelers who come down once or twice a year to catch up. It's a great neighborhood bar for those looking for a less touristy experience and an opportunity to mingle with a variety of people.
