Ambergris Caye is the largest island in Belize and the main destination for travellers to this western Caribbean nation. Ambergris Caye's biggest claim to fame comes as a dive destination. Most visitors to Ambergris Caye visit because of the superior diving and accessibility to dive sites such as Lighthouse Reef, Turneffe Islands as well as many excellent sites right off Ambergris Caye. All this combined with excellent weather conditions and clear warm water, the variety of dive sites and in the unlikely chance that a diving accident should occur, a hyperbaric chamber just minutes away from any of the dive sites. Ambregris caye is definitely a divespot not to miss!

The weather is usually quite pleasant year around. If you're looking for fine dry weather without clouds and with lots of sunshine then you should visit Ambergris Caye between December and April. This is the dry season and the high season. Between May and November the skies can be cloudy, humidity is higher and rain is more likely. This is the low season, and there are fewer tourists and prices are lower. But if you want to see whalesharks then this is the time!

Fly into Belize International Airport (Airport Code BZE). There are a number of flights from Houston, Miami, and New Orleans. From the airport you can take a 15 minute flight into Ambergris Caye with Maya Island Air ( or Tropic Air ( Or a cheaper option is to take the water taxi for 1,5 hours to San Pedro. But because of the time and hassle taking a water taxi and the cost of the cab ride to and from Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport to the water taxi terminal, you are better off flying into Ambergris Caye.
