Belize has several rather popular beach resorts for belize weekend, among which Caye Caulker, Placencia Peninsula, and Ambergris Caye should be mentioned. Ambergris Caye is the most favorite destination in Belize for island-seekers as well as divers, it is approximately 15 minutes by flight and 1 1/2 hours by water taxi from Belize City. Twenty-seven miles long and the country's biggest island, Ambergris features the most resorts in Belize including a number of dedicated dive resorts and the finest array of restaurants, shops and bars in Belize. Most, if not all, resorts on Ambergris Caye offer diving to the nearby reefs. There is a complete selection of reef trips available, single and two tank day trips, night dives and specialty tours.
For some time now, the town of San Pedro has been Belize's principal sun-and-fun destination, and it is here that you'll find the country's largest concentration of hotels and resorts. The compact "downtown" area is a jumble of small hotels, souvenir shops, restaurants, dive shops, and tour agencies. Though San Pedro continues to attract primarily scuba divers and fishermen, it is today popular with a wide range of folks who like the slow-paced atmosphere, including an increasing number of expatriates and retirees. People compare the island to the Florida Keys 40 or 50 years ago, though it is rapidly catching up. Ambergris Caye still has no paved streets, but golf carts and automobiles are proliferating and constantly force pedestrians and bicycle riders to the sides of the road. In the wake of rapid construction, wooden Caribbean houses are giving way to concrete and cinder-block buildings, and even a small strip mall or two. Development has reached both ends of Ambergris Caye, and steady construction appears destined to fill in the blanks from north to south. Still, most of the resorts located north or south of San Pedro are isolated and tranquil retreats, set on the shores of crystal-clear waters. You need to know something about the region before weekend in belize.
Despite the fact that much of the island is seasonally flooded mangrove forest, and despite laws prohibiting the cutting of mangroves, developers continue to clear this marginal land during. Indiscriminate cutting of the mangroves is already having an adverse effect on the nearby barrier reef: Without the mangroves to filter the water and slow the impact of waves, silt is formed and carried out to the reef where it settles and kills the coral. There is still spectacular diving to be had just off the shore here, but local operators and long-term residents claim to have noticed a difference and are expressing concern.
