How to Spend 3 Days in Ambergris Caye

How to Spend 3 Days in Ambergris Caye

With three days on the island of Ambergris Caye, you’ll have plenty of time to snorkel, swim, soak up the sun—and even check out underwater cave systems and Maya ruins on the mainland. Here are some ideas for your itinerary.

Day 1: Ambergris Caye from Above and Below

Begin your stay at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, a popular snorkeling and diving destination replete with coral and tropical fish. For a hassle-free morning, head out on an excursion that includes transport and equipment. After lunch, get a bird’s-eye view of the crystalline waters off the coast of Ambergris Caye on a parasailing tour. Or, treat yourself to a private helicopter ride high above the Belize Barrier Reef and the UNESCO-listed Blue Hole, the largest oceanic sinkhole on the planet. 

 

Day 2: Day Trip to the Mainland

Make your way to the mainland for a day of ruin exploration and jungle adventure. Most tours begin in the morning at the fantastically preserved Maya ruins of Xunantunich, followed by a typical Belizean lunch at a local restaurant. Some also include the chance to go ziplining over the rain forest canopy, or inner-tubing through cave systems. If you’re back in Ambergris Caye in time for dinner, make a beeline for the Truck Stop, a food cart pod with lots of options and outdoor seating.

Day 3: Secret Beach

Now for some quality beach time. The most popular spot is Secret Beach, where you’ll find bars, lounge chairs, and opportunities for water sports—you can even prebook a floating mattress with a table. Later, if you can peel yourself off the sand, join a late-afternoon barhopping boat tour. Fishing enthusiasts might opt for a full-day excursion, some of which include a barbecue lunch and swimming stops. In the evening, either head into San Pedro for a seafood dinner or sign up for a local cooking class.
