Ambergris Caye Timeshare
The largest island off Belize, Ambergris Caye offers a quiet getaway with its beautiful Caribbean beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Just off the island’s shores is the world’s second-largest barrier reef, making it a hotspot for diving and snorkeling. With an Ambergris Caye timeshare, you can indulge in watersports, tour Mayan ruins, explore lagoons and wildlife, or visit the town of San Pedro for culture and nightlife.
Snorkeling, Diving and Water Sports Galore
The Belize Barrier Reef is the island's star attraction. The reef is easily reached just a quarter of a mile from the shore, making it a paradise for snorkelers and divers.
Dive shops dot the beachside, offering classes and tours to underwater hotspots, like Hol Chan Marine Reserve, to see colorful corals, iridescent sponges and a rainbow of fish species like snapper, barracudas, parrotfish and moray eels. You can also swim with nurse sharks and stingrays at Shark Ray Alley here.
Aside from snorkeling and diving, Ambergris Caye offers a variety of watersports that include fishing, jet skiing, paddle-boarding, kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding and more.
If you don’t swim or prefer to stay dry, you can still experience the wonder of the barrier reef by going on a glass-bottom boat tour.
San Pedro Town
Don’t worry about getting dressed up to visit the only town in Ambergris Caye. This charming, waterfront town is so laid-back that you can just show up in your t-shirt, shorts and sandals, or even barefoot if you like. San Pedro is only a mile long, placing everything within walking distance.
Stroll around town and admire the colorful blend of Colonial, Spanish and Caribbean architecture. Browse the boutiques and shops for souvenirs. Step inside one of the restaurants to savor fresh seafood or the local dish of beans and rice.
For island nightlife, San Pedro is where you want to go. You’ll find several bars here along with three nightclubs. Outside town, you’ll find Saturday night beach parties and beach bars, including some that float on the water and others that feature a bowling alley on the sandy beach.
Kayak the Lagoons and Mangrove Rivers
While the Caribbean side of the island is popular, you don’t want to miss taking a kayak tour through the lagoons and mangrove rivers on the western side. You can see a variety of wildlife such as howler monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas, manatees and a diversity of bird species.
Crab Racing with the Kids
If you want a fun night with the kids while visiting your Ambergris Caye timeshare, head to Crazy Canuck’s in San Pedro. Every Tuesday night, this lively venue hosts hermit crab races, where the kids can name their crabs and win prizes. Here, you can also enjoy live music, good food and other activities like horseshoe tournaments.
No vacation to your Ambergris Caye timeshare would be complete without exploring ancient Mayan ruins. The closest site is Marco Gonzalez, which remains unexcavated but offers some interesting artifacts and a fun jungle adventure. If you want to see more impressive sites, you can arrange a tour that includes jungle walking, wildlife viewing and cave exploring.
When to Visit
While the island may get crowded during the peak season (November through mid-April), it may be worth it to visit to your Ambergris Caye timeshare during this time due to the clear, sunny skies and warm temperatures. If you don’t mind rain and occasional storms, summer (June to September) may be an option. Late September and October present the best time to escape crowds, but some establishments may close during the offseason.
