A trip to Belize isn’t complete without a stay in Ambergris Caye. This island is the tourism capital of the country-and for a good reason. Whether you’re slipping away to the-not-so-secret-Secret Beach, eating lunch on the water, or fist-pumping through the night at the Jaguar’s Temple Club, when the fun is done, you’re going to need a place to rest your head. Here are some things you need to look for when searching for your temporary domicile while on La Isla Bonita.
Choose Your Style of Stay
Ambergris Caye, although a relatively small island, has a plethora of different places to stay, and each has its own style. However, the most important decision you are going to want to make is what basic type of accommodation you’re going to want.
Backpackers love Ambergris Caye, and there are several great options for them. However, if sharing a bathroom and razor-thin walls is not your style, you may want to select something a bit more comfortable.
On the other hand, the hotels on Ambergris Caye offer you both comfort and convenience. They also offer a lot of variety in terms of amenities, so it’s important to know what you need before going. Although Ambergris Caye certainly has the most fervent economy in all of Belize, many of the accommodations are lacking amenities that most people would consider basic. Here are some things you’re going to want to ensure your hotel or resort has.
Central Air Conditioning
Even though the average temperature is in the mid-’80s, central air conditioning is not a given on this otherwise beautiful island. In Belize, sometimes rooms are offered at a great price, but it’s because there is no AC. Make Sure your hotel doesn’t ascribe to that approach.
Most places have Internet, but how far does it reach? Can you do work away from your room? Do the more chill areas allow you to get online? Check for this first.
An Iron and Other Accessories
You would be shocked how many places do not have irons or ironing boards. Yes, you’re on a great vacay, but there’s nothing wrong with looking sharp as you take a spin up to Rain or over to Estelle’s.
