You did it! Vacation, here you come! It’s one of the most exciting times, the planning stages of what to do on your big vacation. For most of us, we average maybe one big vacation a year, so ideally we’d love it to be a mixture of excitement combined with some relaxation – this is why Belize stands out. Ambergris Caye island, a few miles east of mainland Belize is known for its natural beauty, the incredible Belize Barrier Reef, the Great Blue Hole, exquisite foods, and friendly people. As far as resorts go, Grand Caribe is the perfect blend of modern luxury and comfort. It’s the best place to stay to get the most of the island and have a Belize island experience that’s worth remembering for years to come.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, though, let’s talk about how to get to Grand Caribe. There are three ways to get to Grand Caribe, and the first is by water taxi. You can take a taxi from the international airport directly to the water taxi terminal. From there, it takes about an hour and a half to get to the island, with trips every hour. That gives you just enough time to grab a quick cup of coffee and a postcard from a nearby snack shop. If you have your sea legs about you it can be quite thrilling to be on the water. Together the wind, the sea spray, and the roaring engines are a part of the fun and excitement.
The second way to get to Grand Caribe is by airplane. Catch a local flight from the international airport on any of our domestic carriers, either Maya Island Air or Tropic Air. The trip lasts anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes, and the views of the historic old capital and the many shades of ocean blues from up high are truly sensational. We’d be happy to arrange your Maya Island Air flight, including concierge service. That means when you arrive, a Mayan Island Air representative will be waiting for you at the arrivals gate to escort you to your plane. It’s quick, convenient, and easy. Just email your itinerary to us, and we’ll take it from there.
The third way to get to Grand Caribe will blow your mind. We’ve partnered with Astrum Helicopters to offer an exhilarating tour of either the Belize Barrier Reef and/or the Great Blue Hole from up high. These natural attractions are within a few miles of Grand Caribe and present breathtaking views and heart-thumping excitement. At the end of the tour, we circle back around to the island and resort, arriving at our on-site helipad. It’s one of those once in a lifetime experience. Just contact us to arrange your transfer from the airport and tour.
Once you get to the resort, you’re free to do as little or as much as you’d like. Grand Caribe Resort located two miles north of the main town of San Pedro is a resort community like few others. We offer fully furnished condos and beach walkouts, 800 feet of private beach, two restaurants, grocery and wine shop, fitness center, conference room, 24-hour medical services, spa treatments, and tons more. Feel like fishing or sailing? Talk to our concierge team for information and tips on what to do and where to go.
