DayDreamin’ in Tres Cocos, Ambergris Caye: A Brand New Bed & Breakfast

Just this past weekend, I was invited to spend the night at a brand new bed and breakfast that just opened in the lovely neighborhood of Tres Cocos on North Ambergris Caye.  Just close enough to town to walk or bike ride (just over a mile) for all the restaurants, bars & shops but far away enough for some evening peace and quiet.  And maybe a walk just a few hundred feet down the lane to one of San Pedro’s most famous spots, The Palapa Bar.


To get there Sunday afternoon, I walked over the bridge north…on the newly paved road for a bit and then the beach…


I took a left at the Palapa and I was at the newest bed and breakfast on Ambergris Caye.  DayDreamin’ Belize.


Four lovely little cabanas and an office.  All clustered around a small pool…


that are surprisingly luxe.  Absolutely beautifully finished.  From the gorgeous tile work in the washroom to the 800 to 1000 count sheets on the bed and the uber-comfy mattress and the fan…THE FAN!  I could not stop obsessing over it.  It’s like art.  (If you’d like to know more…)



Mounds of thick white towels.IMG_8228 IMG_8232

And even one to leave that embarrassing mascara smear on…it’s inevitable!IMG_8234

Curtains to pull shut for privacy…IMG_8241

And a front porch to just watch the world go by.IMG_8243

And…eating my breakfast.  After being swaddled in beautiful sheets, surrounded by huge soft pillows, watching a bit of TV and just relaxing, I stumbled out of bed minutes before my self-appointed breakfast time of 8am.

The cutest dog (a Chihuahua/Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix) named Molly ambled over to say hello.

Why so serious Molly?

And a delicious Americano coffee from the on-site coffee shop, Marbucks.  Look at this machine!

Around the bend…


And over to the AK’Bol dock for one of my favorite places to swim in the ocean.


What a lovely night’s stay.

These guys are just opening now!  And the coffee shop (Marbuck’s) is open for all.

Love this tiling.
