The main settlement on the island of Ambergris Caye, San Pedro straddles the line between busy resort town and quiet Caribbean paradise.  The houses that line the shore are as colorful as the residents who are always helpful, friendly, and fun.  The type of activities available range from leisurely to active.

The Belize barrier reef is just a half a mile off shore, making scuba diving a very, very popular choice for visitors.  There are numerous diver operators and over 35 underwater sites to see.  If you're not ready to fully submerge, there is snorkeling as well, and the deep sea fishing opportunities are plentiful.  For sightseeing, you can get around on foot or rent a bicycle, and dining is an activity all its own.
