Grand Caribe chose its home carefully, settling on nothing less than the perfect mix that is found on the island of Ambergris. Just a couple of miles north of San Pedro town was its destined spot. Ambergris Caye proved itself to have all the qualities anyone could ask for, amazing views, close to the barrier reef with four park and marine reserves, a rich history at Marco Gonzalez Maya site. Mainland Belize is only 15mins by air or approx. 1.5hrs by water taxi.
Of the qualities above, the most noted would be the Belize Barrier Reef, being the largest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere it protects the island, keeps the beach calm and is an adventure on its own for snorkelers, divers and fishermen alike. This site to be seen lines the entire 25mile coast of Ambergris Caye. Of these 25 miles, 2.5 miles from downtown San Pedro town, there is a special spot consisting of 5 acres with 500ft of pure beach that makes the home of Grand Caribe. Its proximity to San Pedro Town its guests seclusion from the town but yet close enough to access easily.
San Pedro, once a fishing town, has maintained its small town roots while modernizing itself for its tourist visitors, with plenty of restaurants and tourist attractions. Yet more often than not its the small town itself that attracts these guests and keeps them coming back. Frequently visitors find themselves in the midst of a local wedding, quinceaños, or a local event such as a charity fashion show, or a high school football game. The hustle and bustle of the friendly laid-back locals makes the little town vibrant and colorful. And Grand Caribe’s proximity allows its guests to be a part of all of San Pedro’s local culture but also be able to escape to a quiet sandy beach.
So whether you choose to one day revel in peace and tranquility because at one mile north across the Boca del Rio bridge where no large cars are allowed and limited access is granted, visitors are guaranteed a worry free vacation; and in the next moment be immersed in another culture. Guests are free to change their moods as frequently as they care to do so. For example, A person can go snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve in the morning, lunch at Cowboy’s pool bar and grill here at Grand Caribe, sun at the pool all afternoon, have a sunset bike ride along the beach, followed by dinner and dancing in town; and its all possible in one day from Grand Caribe on the “Isla Bonita.” So come by and see what its like to have many vacations in one.
