The best things to do in Ambergris Caye is anything that has to do with the sea. This would include anything from diving, to boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, or fishing. If you are a person who likes being in or on the water, Ambergris Caye is the place to do it.
Personally, I like just being here. I like the weather. I love the people and the sense of community. Ambergris Caye does not have as much of a consumer based lifestyle as it is in North America. If you want something, you have to get creative on how you can make it happen here because not everything that you are used to in North America is available here in Ambergris Caye. If you are looking to get away from that consumer mindset where you are constantly looking for the bigger, better thing or the thought of what you are going to get out of something or to live an instant gratification lifestyle, Ambergris Caye is a much better place to be. We don’t have chain stores here. We don’t have McDonald’s or a Walmart. What really drives this island are all the independent, small owner, entrepreneurial spirit as opposed to the big box stores that we are used to in North America.
