North Ambergris Caye News

It has been smokin hot on the island today. tacoboy and I are going to go for a walk and hopefully find clothes line at Marina’s or Super by South so we can string a 10 x 12 green tarp and have some shade for the pool.

I have a few things to report for North Ambergris Caye area today. First off Grand Caribe Resort and Condominiums is offering a great 14 Night Special; pay 7 nights and stay 14 nights.  Special runs from August 15th to December 24th, 2011 and January 1st to February 1st, 2012.

Grand Caribe has 500 feet of beachfront, 3 swimming pools, a wonderful pier, Foot Prints Poolside Bar and Grill serves great food and drinks right on site. You can even have meals delivered right to your condo! There are also  Several restaurants within walking distance and a  full service concierge can book any tour Belize has to offer.

If you are a tropical swimming pool fan I would definitely put a visit to Grand Caribe on your list. I am in the works of planning a pool there – stay tuned for more info on that.
