Ambergris Caye or Caye Caulker

by katievalk »

I much prefer Ambergris over CC for many reasons, including beach, restaurant and hotel options and more important, variety of placfes to stay, either close to town or much further north on the 26 mile caye, in areas close to the reef with walk in snorkeling.  Its not fair to compare the two islands as they are different enough from each other that CC would appeal to budget travelers and Ambergris to people with seeking more diverse services

Here are some articles about Ambergris. http://www.myvacationpages.com/travel-lounge/category/belize/

I would say stick there, easier to get around, more restaurants, and stuff. You can go to Caye Caulker for a day, but you'll want to go inland too, so I think its a bit easier.

I agree with Pauline. Caye Caulker has two large reserves - a marine reserve that contains some of Belize's Barrier Reef, and the Caye Caulker Forest Reserve. But if you only have a short window, going to inland Belize will allow you to national parks, in addition to Mayan ruins. As to how much time you spend in the rainforest depends on how interested your kids are in seeing the wildlife, and how much patience they have for hiking in the humidity.
