Tourism meets real estate investment in Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is located 35 miles north east of Belize City and can be reached either by a 20 minute flight or a 1.5 hour boar ride. Ambergris Caye was formally part of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, now separated from Mexico by a canal dug by the Mayans. The Caye has emerged as Belize’s premier tourism destination given its beauty, accessibility, and proximity to world class diving and snorkelling. The largest barrier reef in the western and southern hemisphere runs parallel to its Eastern shore. Click here for a map of the island.
