Vrbo on Ambergris Caye
“Community, nature, and paradise.”
Ambergris Caye is the largest island in Belize and the main destination for travelers to this western Caribbean region. For centuries, Ambergris Caye has been a hub of the area’s maritime trade. Fishing, coconuts, and chicle (natural gum) were historic means of income.
The last thirty years have led to a large growth in both the dive and scuba trade as well as ecotourism. On the north end of the Caye, Bacalar Chico National Park protects wildlife and the Chac Balam Mayan ruins near the Mexico border. Off the south coast Ambergris Caye lays the world famous underwater world of Hol Chan and Shark Ray alley.
