Why Stay At Grand Colony Island Villas?

Luxurious island villas fronting a white-sand beach on picturesque Ambergris Caye.

The Scoop
Grand Colony Island Villas are nestled along a tranquil private beachfront affording prime views of the Caribbean. Amply spaced (the smallest rings in at 1,100 square feet) one-, two- and three-bedroom residences group around a free-form pool in the center of the resort. All air-conditioned units are smartly appointed with marble or hardwood floors and mahogany furniture. Sprawl out across the living and dining areas, full kitchens, two full baths with Jacuzzi and private furnished balconies. Modern amenities like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, DVD players and Wi-Fi Internet access cater to tech-savvy beach bums. Contrast adventurous island exploration with an afternoon of languid pampering at the day spa, which specializes in soothing body treatments like Hot Stone and Thai massages. Fine dining is just a quick stroll away: Rico’s Bar and Grill boasts an overwater location and delectable island-style surf-and-turf cuisine. Sit back on the deck to savor colorful sunsets and a tropical rum punch or two après dinner.

Insider Tips
Arrange for a complimentary transfer from San Pedro Airport to Grand Colony Island Villas before your arrival.

Go fishing: Expert angling guides pick you up at the resort’s dock and introduce you to the best spots teeming with Tarpon, Grouper, Snapper and Permit.

Ambergris Caye, Belize 

BELIZE@FriendsTravel.com

 

Bought sight unseen by a California doctor in 1972, the site of El Pescador enjoys some covetable sandy shores on Ambergris Caye, off the coast of Belize. Located just a few miles north of the isle’s busy tourist town of San Pedro, the resort is made up of a two-story mahogany colonial lodge and three-bedroom, three-bath luxury villas. The attention to detail is a far cry from Belize’s typically uninspired hotels: hardwood floors, handcrafted furniture, bamboo accents, and local art on the walls.

Belize Travel Guide

Blue Hole

Blue Hole

About the same size as Wales, Belize rests on the Caribbean coast between Mexico and Guatemala: an exotic, English-speaking, adventurer’s paradise, just a couple of hours away from three major United States cities. Almost half the country has been preserved as nature parks and reserves, including tropical forests teeming with wildlife and hiding mysterious Mayan ruins, and 174 miles (280km) of coastline featuring the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere.

The reef and the country’s numerous offshore cayes, or atolls, have made this one of the world’s most desirable destinations for scuba divers and marine researchers. They come to explore unique features like the famous ‘Blue Hole’, a collapsed submerged cave 1,000 feet (305m) in diameter and 412 feet (126m) deep.

Archaeologically Belize is fascinating too, having been the site of mighty Mayan cities from around 1,000 BC until the inexplicable disintegration of that great civilisation around 900 AD. There are believed to be thousands of Mayan ruins in Belize, of which about 600 have been discovered and excavated, many now open to tourists.

Like most Caribbean countries Belize was occupied by British and Spanish colonialists over the centuries before gaining independence (only lately recognised by neighbouring Guatemala which laid claim to the territory) in 1981. Today it is a happy-go-lucky multi-ethnic nation of warm, friendly people, very welcoming of the tourists on whom the country’s economy relies heavily.

The main urban city (although not the capital) is Belize City, which offers some attractions like a world-class zoo, a new museum, historic buildings and the Maya site of Altun Ha. Basically, though, Belize is a destination for the outdoor enthusiast and adventure traveller. There are not many nightclubs, expensive shopping venues or fancy restaurants, but there is plenty of scope for diving, snorkelling, fishing, hiking, birdwatching, kayaking and exploring.

Leading the Way in Adventure Travel – FriendsTravel.com

Leading the Way in Adventure Travel

Since 1987 Island Expeditions has pioneered sea kayak and snorkel trips that have set the standard for others to follow. Who would have thought that when we first began our sea kayak and snorkel trips at little-known Glover’s Reef Atoll that a decade later it would become both a treasured National Park and be recognized as a United Nations World Heritage Site. In 2003, we opened our newest basecamp on Halfmoon Caye, Lighthouse Reef. With its rare beauty and astonishing marine life it will surely become one known as a world-class sea kayak and snorkel destination.

Our exploratory river and jungle trips in Belize continue to define the cutting edge and are unequalled for wildlife, whitewater and spectacular scenery. These adventures not only bring you to the most beautiful and pristine locations in the country, but we also take you there at the right times, with the top guides in the country and with the quality gear you need to explore to the fullest. On the Barrier Reef, in the rainforest, and on the rivers our years of experience and knowledge of Belize are with you every step and paddle stroke of the way.

To offer you the widest choice of experiences, many trips are designed (and departure dates organized) so that you can combine different reef and inland trips together. Special discounts are available when two or more trips (totaling 13 days or more) are combined.

Why kayak and snorkel
with Island Expeditions in Belize?

Each year, more people choose Island Expeditions than any other compan for real adventure in Belize. With more than twenty years experience kayaking and snorkeling in Belize we know the reef system like few others. Choose from our all inclusive luxury basecamps on remote coral atolls to our classic sea kayak journeys paddling from island to island along the southern barrier reef. From first-time kayakers to seasoned adventurers we have a trip that matches your interests and activity level. Our guides have a reputation as the very best in the country and from the moment you arrive in sunny Belize we’ll take care of all the details, so you can leave your worries and cares behind and enjoy the sea kayaking and snorkeling adventure of a lifetime!
