Pool and Snacks at Costa Blu Resort on North Ambergris Caye

When I first arrived on Ambergris Caye over 10 years ago, there was a large, all-inclusive dive resort way up north that seemed SO far away…

6 miles north of San Pedro town, before there was a road, was Costa Maya Dive Resort.  It closed down soon after I moved here – and my first stop there was 2013.  Pretty much abandoned.

A few years ago, Sandy Points Resorts took over.  They own/manage a bunch of resorts on the island – some of my favorites, in fact.  And they did a beautiful job rebuilding and reviving…

And now there is a road, a paved road for 4 miles and then a decent packed road for about 5 more…

The resort is called Costa Blu Resort – and it has one of the biggest beach fronts on the island.  Beach front right on the Mexico Rocks Marine Reserve – one of the prettiest stretches of reef and water off Ambergris Caye.

Yesterday, with a break in the cloudy weather, I stopped in for a snack and a look around…

Because the property has existed for a while…15 years perhaps?….the landscape is beautiful.  Full grown coconut trees that I love.

A big beach restaurant with a swim up bar.

Today is a GORGEOUS day and I’m heading over to Caye Caulker…

I’ll be reporting back.  But for more information on Costa Blu Resort, definitely check out their website.  And if you have any photos of the resort way back when, I would love to see them!  Please let me know.
