Sun drenched and fringed with coconut palms, Ambergris Caye is the largest of Belize's over 200 Cayes. Only a stones throw from Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, the narrow Bacalar Chica channel dug by the ancient Maya separates it. Known as "La Isla Bonita", the island is filled with Caribbean charm. San Pedro, the main town, is a delightful blend of the Caribbean with a touch of Mexico and a dash of old Key West. Sandy streets are lined with small hotels, boutiques, dive stores and full menu of places to eat and drink.
