January 14th 2014 by Oscar Castaneda for Balaam Eco Adventures

Just a short 15 minutes flight from Belize City or if you prefer a  1 1/2 boat ride and you arrive at San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.  Its  the largest and most popular Caye (pronounce as "Key") in Belize and has been rated as a top beach destination in the world by millions of Trip Advisor travellers from around the globe.   It is a mile or so long and encompasses only a few street blocks (front, middle, back street). Most of the houses are wooden with zinc roofed houses. San Pedro town is the heart of Ambergris Caye and offers a wide range of Belize Adventure Tours, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, and banks. Since the airstrip is also located in town, most resorts and hotels are only a hop, skip & a jump away. 

The main means of transportation are golf carts however bicycles, scooters, and some cars and vans are also available. The streets are sandy and unpaved so be sure to leave your fancy clothes and high heel shoes at home. There are no traffic lights, no freeways or highways, and no high rise buildings either.
