The largest island in Belize, Ambergris Caye is located off the coast of Belize, running parallel to the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Stay at a property outside the town of San Pedro and snorkel the clear blue waters to explore the rich marine life and coral gardens along the reef. On the south coast of the mainland, properties near villages such as Placencia and Hopkins are also ideal for relaxation and snorkelling. The lush jungle and waterfalls of nearby Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary can be easily explored. The lodges and hotels are almost all situated on the long beach leading up to Placencia village, which is lined with bars and restaurants.
