San Pedro (SPR)
San Pedro is the main town on Ambergris Caye, the most northerly and largest of the 200 cayes off the coast of Belize. The barrier reef is just a 20 minute boat ride away making this truly a world-class fishing, diving and snorkeling destination.
Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a snorkeler’s dream, alive with schools of fish, big and small. Shark-Ray Alley allows visitors to get up close and personal with friendly nurse sharks and stingrays. The island’s clear, shallow waters and prevailing winds are ideal for windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing. North of the island, the Bacalar Chico Reserve is an adventurer’s paradise. The lagoon on the island’s western side provides an excellent opportunity for birding and flat fishing for tarpon, bonefish and permit. There is even a small Maya site, Marco Gonzalez, on the south end of the island.
San Pedro town has a unique feel and offers sophisticated international cuisine in beach side restaurants, mixed with local cafes and bars serving traditional Belizean food and drinks.
The island is also home to many award winning hotels, spas, tour operators and resorts. The town streets bustle with local artists and craftsmen displaying their wares. Best of all it is also the place Tropic Air calls home.
