I've been here for a couple months now, and every day am reminded of just how lucky I am. From the white sand beaches and crystal blue waters, to the piping hot fryjacks, this island continually tries to steal my heart.
Golf carts, bikes and walking in town. Great local Belizean dishes, beachside tropical town, ... Fun area for a vacay in Central America. Con - Lots of trash around the streets and beach.
We went during the off season so the island was pretty empty. You can rent golf carts to take you around which we thought was pretty fun. Since it was the off season most places were closed. There were still some shops to visit and places to eat. Most of our excursions were done in the water which is just beautiful. Fine sand and clear water...can't beat that.
This great little island is a 15 minute puddle jumper flight from Belize City or an hour ferry ride. It sits on the second biggest barrier reef on the planet. Most of the hotels have a small dock and boats can be used as shuttles or they will pick you up for any sort of sea excursion (diving etc). The town has a ton of little restaurants and pretty decent night life. Even though everything in San Pedro IS walk able, it's only about 5 dollars to take a taxi anywhere in town. The northern half of the island has some more exclusive and isolated resorts but the area is not paved at all and there is a small toll. I would recommend renting a golf cart at least one day to explore the entire island, which is not difficult to do. Even though you are on an island, you can easily organize mainland excursions from there for fairly cheap. This little caye has a little bit of everything for everyone!
