The Lodge at Chaa Creek: My Personal Paradise Found…Part One

The way the crow flies, The Lodge at Chaa Creek in the Cayo District of Belize is less than 100 miles away from the beaches of Ambergris Caye. Less than 100 miles!  From the turquoise Carribbean and coral reef to the lush green jungle and impressive Mayan ruins, this district is a totally different worldKeep reading »

Hotels For Your Budget: San Pedro’s Conch Shell Inn

One of the questions I get asked most frequently is about budget travelling to Ambergris Caye.  Some are back packing from Mexico and trying to keep the budget as tight as possible, some just want to spend money on eating, drinking and diving rather than on their lodging.  Both make sense.  So…over the next few months, IKeep reading »

Indigo Beach Homes and A Walk Up North

On Monday I took a rare water taxi ride north (yes NORTH!) to visit Indigo Condominium/Beach Homes.  They are 4.5 miles north of the bridge and still being finished.  They are projected to open in November. Here was my view when I first got on the dock. And the view from the top floor backKeep reading »

A Day At Grand Caribe Resort

Yesterday I went up to Grand Caribe Resort to help out with a wedding.  Just a few miles north of town and the bridge, Grand Caribe is actually quite easy and quick to travel to…by golf cart or by boat.  Heck…these days you can actually take a taxi there.  The road isn’t bad at all…AfterKeep reading »

Tranquility Bay Resort: Ahhhh…The Beach I’ve Been Looking For

Alt Test

I just (reluctantly) returned from a few amazing nights at Tranquility Bay Resort on northern Ambergris Caye.  Located within the Bacalar Chico National Park, Tranquility is a small resort 13 miles north of San Pedro town.  With only 10 cabanas on a perfectly private white sand beach, you almost feel like you are in anotherKeep reading »

THE HOTEL on Ambergris Caye: I am Seriously Impressed

I’ll admit.  I was skeptical (I usually am).  A New York style deli?  An Irish pub?  In Belize?  I visited The Hotel yesterday for a St. Patrick’s Day bash and honestly?  I could not have been more impressed.  So much more than I thought it would be.  I am going to try to temper theKeep reading »

The Blue Tang Inn: What A View

Let’s flash back a bit to better weather.  This is #2 in my hotel review series.   (To view #1, check out:  Sunbreeze Hotel) At the north end of town, Blue Tang is a small inn (I believe 14 rooms) that I have walked past 1000 times.  It is very cutely painted and covered inKeep reading »

Location, location, location: The Sunbreeze Hotel

I’ve been getting lots of emails asking me one question:  Why don’t you show us places to stay?  Well…ummmm…because I stay in my condo.  That’s why.   But, you are right, SanPedroScoop should be more accommodating to her hoards of fans.  It can’t just be me, me, me all of the time.  So here is myKeep reading »
