Why Stay At Las Terrazas Resort
It's the best of two worlds: exceptional resort service plus the privacy of fully furnished townhomes on Ambergris Caye, the ultimate diving destination off the lush coast of Belize.
Built in 2008, this resort made a splash when it opened on one of Central America's emerging destinations, Ambergris Caye, in Belize. Located just over three miles from the island town of San Pedro, the four-acre white-on-white property is far enough to be a secluded getaway—yet close enough that bikini-clad vacationers can hear the reggae wafting from nearby beach bars. Comprising 39 one-, two-, and three-bedroom town houses (each with a full kitchen, washer, and dryer), accommodations are well suited to both couples and families. Adventure types opt for diving excursions in the Northern Hemisphere's largest coral reef, while foodies in search of island barbecue head straight to San Pedro by way of golf carts. When all else fails, there's always an afternoon by the pool in the shade of a palapa umbrella with a rum punch in hand.
Be sure to check out the activities offered by Las Terrazas, including the popular half-day snorkel trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley or an excursion to nearby Mayan ruins.
Those who opt out of the resort's meal plan (breakfast and dinner are included) will want to ask about the hotel's grocery service, where travelers can order provisions such as Marie Sharp's Hot Sauce and Belikin beer.

Why We Love Ambergris Caye
The weather is mild, the beaches are beautiful, and the history is rich—Ambergris Caye is part of the land of swaying palm trees and colorful sunsets.
