The amazing adventures and variety of activities in the town of San Pedro make Ambergris Caye a perfect tourist destination in tropical Belize.
Ambergris Caye is known as the largest among the islands in the amazing country of Belize and is considered a primary destination for tourists and travelers in the western Caribbean. The town of San Pedro is the only town on the island; and, for centuries, the charming island of Ambergris Caye has been the core area of the maritime trading in the country. Fishing and tourism are the historic livelihood of the local citizens in the island, and for the last 30 years, Ambergris Caye has developed its scuba and diving trade, as well as ecotourism.
Because of all of these things and more, English-speaking Ambergris Caye has claimed the throne for the top prestigious award at the World Travel Awards (WTA). The island did not just hit the top spot for the first time but, for the incredible second time in a row. The WTA is known as the largest awards ceremony in tourism, and gave incredible Ambergris Caye “Mexico and Central America’s Leading Destination for 2016”.
The Director of the Belize Tourism Board has gone on record saying they’re very excited about their second consecutive award, despite the competition with other, bigger destinations.
Every year, the island of Ambergris Caye accommodates thousands of visitors from all over the world. In 2014, Ambergris Caye Island was voted the # 1 Island in the World two years running by the globally renowned Traveler’s Choice Awards, with Trip Advisor ranking it among the top 10 islands anywhere.
We at Captain Morgan’s are very pleased with these accolades, and we hope to see you here in magical Ambegris Caye soon… whether it’s for your first time visiting, or a return trip to paradise.
