The town consists of small colored houses on sand streets immediately adjacent to the clear blue sea. Sea breezes and trade winds provide all the cooling necessary. Small hotels, guest houses and condos are spread throughout the town. Most common modern conveniences are readily available. You have the choice of very modest to top of the line accommodations most of which are a few steps from the beach.

If you want a laid back comfortable shorts and tees Caribbean vacation at a fairly modest price then San Pedro Town is the spot. Many people feel the fishing, snorkeling and diving could not be better anywhere. If you are a type A personality then we suggest that you look elsewhere. The locals are mostly Mexican but speak English fairly well. The North end of Ambergris Caye is separated from Mexico by a narrow channel that was reportedly dug by the Mayan’s hundreds of years ago.

Unlike Cancun with plastic package tourist packages San Pedro visitors have more freedom to roam and enjoy paradise. Ambergris Caye is a long thin island that about 25 miles in length and is the largest of Belize’s more than 200 islands. Getting their means using a water taxi from Belize City or flying to the only airport that is located right against the east side of town. The primary mode of mechanical transportation is via golf cart. There are few cars and trucks on the island but that is slowly changing and not for the better.
