San Pedro, once a quiet fishing village surrounded by coconut plantations, is today the #1 tourist destination in Belize. The main draw of idyllic Ambergris Caye lies in its unique situation alongside the impossibly turquoise blue waters of the world’s largest living barrier reef and second largest in the world. This close proximity provides unparalleled access to some of the best snorkeling, diving, fishing, water sports, and seafood in the Caribbean. Combined with an eclectic mix of festivals and rapidly evolving culinary and nightlife scenes, Ambergris Caye tops 2021 lists of best places to invest and retire overseas.
Since the recent arrival of several major worldwide hotel brands, (Hilton, Marriott and Margaritaville to name a few), Belize’s largest island has quickly become one of the hottest real estate markets in the Caribbean. Ambergris Caye has managed to keep its quaint and colorful charm while simultaneously offering up the best of Belize in residential/resort developments, beachfront homes, condominiums, property and unique hotel experiences.
