Ambergris Caye, Belize


It’s almost summer and that means that it’s time to hit the beach! Consider changing things up this year. Instead of heading to California or Florida, pack up your passport and venture out of the US to find an international spot where you can relax and soak up the sun. Ambergris Caye, the largest populated island off the coast of Belize, is an up-and-coming travel destination that boasts glorious beaches and beautiful water, making it the perfect spot to kick back with a tropical cocktail and a great book.

Ambergris Caye is easily accessible – located a few hours south of the eastern tip of Mexico, it’s a direct flight for many (just two and a half hours from Dallas, for reference) and a simple connection for others. My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Ambergris Caye, and, let’s just say this: we’re ready to pack up our swimsuits and head back as soon as possible.
