Come visit Caye Caulker, Belize

Image
Belize’s tranquil island getaway of Caye Caulker floats gracefully atop the glistening aqua and emerald waters of the Caribbean Sea.  Surrounded by swaying palm trees and rustic boat docks, the shores of Caye Caulker lie just a few hundred meters inside the second largest barrier reef in the world.  The reef’s coral formations shelter a clear, shallow canvas of water that takes on an ever-changing array of multicolored shapes and hues.If you can pull yourself away from the transfixing Caribbean waters, when you set foot on the shores of Caye Caulker, you’ll quickly get a sense that the island moves to its own beat, fitting its well-deserved billing as the tranquil, laid back member of Belize’s northern cayes.  Caye Caulker might be described as lightly developed, with just enough business establishments and services to make for a comfortable vacation without jeopardizing the local culture and authentic tropical island atmosphere. Front Street Front Street runs parallel to the coast o…

A low-pressure system located about 800 miles east of the Lesser The Antilles has become a little better defined since yesterday, but most of the associated shower and thunderstorm activity is displaced to the west of the center of circulation.  Upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development during the next day or so while the low moves westward at 15 to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic Ocean, crossing the Caribbean Sea on Friday.  An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system on Thursday, if necessary, and interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of the disturbance. * Formation chance th…

The Phoenix Hotel is giving back to the community

Image
"The resort has been awarded recognition for its continuous community efforts and fundraising for various causes such as Oceania and hosts popular weekly beach cleanups to help keep Belize beautiful."

When history, modern sophistication, Caribbean beaches, and a free happy hour come together in one place, we need little convincing to visit. Then you throw in The Phoenix resort’s prime location, pristine property, and “give where you live” philosophy, and we’re ready to relocate to the charming town of San Pedro on the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize.

The upscale resort sits where the historic Paradise Resort Hotel, Ambergris Caye’s second ever hotel, was originally built in 1970. Owners Jerry and Linda McDermott sold the property in 1991 before repurchasing in 2004. Today, the McDermotts’ daughter Kelly McDermott Kanabar, her husband Mukul Kanabar, and their business partner Mark Maggiotto have started from the ground up, turning the ever-favored thatched cabanas and bea…

Corozal Friendliest community to visit in Belize

Image
The people tend to be very friendly. Corozal is a small and sleepy town with great views of the bay. If you want to rest, this is a great stop. If you arrive on Sunday, you'll find most businesses closed, although a few of the small restaurants and general stores will be open. There are very few tourists, so it is a good place to see Belize off the beaten track, and consequently, accommodation, food and drink, and other items are cheaper than in better-known places.
Very regular buses are available between Corozal Town and Chetumal in Mexico, running about every 45 minutes during the day. The journey lasts about 1 hour and costs around 3.00Bze$ or 20$ pesos Mexican if you are still in Chetumal coming to Corozal.

Fairly regular and inexpensive buses are also available to and from Belize City and Belmopan, as well as other destinations in the country. Tropic Air and Maya Island Air offer flights on smaller prop-driven aircraft between Corozal and Belize City, San Pedro, and Caye Cau…
