Walking North Ambergris Caye from Costa Maya to Grand Caribe, Part Three

This walk is taking longer to blog about than it was to walk but I took SO many pictures since I have been such an infrequent visitor to these foreign climes.  Part One, I barely budged traveling from Costa Maya Resort (Mile 6.5) to Portofino (Mile 6 North).  Part Two took me from Portofino to Rojo to Los Encantos (Mile 4.5). Let’s get moving.  I passed a very active little dive shop but I didn’t see a name a the resort. IMG_2693-2 Just down the beach is Rendezvous Restaurant and Winery.  The only one on the island. IMG_2696-2 A bit further is Belizean Shores. IMG_2699-2 And then in the lot is a turbo sized construction project teaming with workers.  All of the rebar is almost like a sculpture…almost. IMG_2701-2 IMG_2705-2 And I would imagine this is only the beginning…the pool at the Venezia will be quite impressive.  Huge.  A bit of Venice right here in Belize. IMG_2704-2Next up is Coco Beach with some very impressive pools of their own.  Complete with a rock formation water slide and swim up bar.

Next is one of the most intriguing properties on the island, probably my favorite.  I wrote a post about Essene Way last year.  A wedding chapel?  Lots of concrete angels?  A huge whale that looks like it belongs on a Jersey Shore putt-putt course?  Trust me, it’s interesting stuff.

It’s also housing for quite a few people.  I resisted the urge to walk around…there is a boat to catch.  I passed Captain Morgan’s and then Belizean Cove Estates.  I can see why the TV show “The Bachelor” used this location a few years back.  No bachelorettes lounging about today.

Next up Capricorn Restaurant.  Not time to stop!

Don’t stop now!  Next is El Pescador Lodge and Villas.

Aji Tapas Bar & Restaurant is a very cute spot with some excellent happy hour prices.

IMG_2737-2At this point my feet were starting to hurt.  The Palapa Bar was my original final destination but this dock looked so appealing…

I thought I’d give Coastal Express water taxi a call to have them pick me up here at Grand Caribe.  So I settled down to wait in the sun…

A girl’s got to amuse herself somehow…

The End.

  • Enjoyed your walk photos and description as we have been by many of those places numerous times (especially in Part 3). The busy dive shop is White Sands, Elbert Greer’s place, and the “resort” there is Journey’s End. We see people (usually large groups of younger folks) there all the time, but it doesn’t seem to be operating as a resort any more — maybe a retreat for church groups or humanitarian groups? Not sure…

    Good Tour! I think that Dive Shop is White Sands, Elbert Greer…

    I think you are right about the dive shop…I just couldn’t find the name!
