San Pedro is the main town on the island of Ambergris Caye. There is a huge selection of bars and restaurants there, as the beach stretches for miles and miles. This island is a little more upscale than Caye Caulker. The Palapa Bar and Grill (at right) gets great reviews.
Caye Caulker is where you want to go for serious partying of the younger set. There are many "backpacker" style lodging options on the island, and many choices for great bars and restaurants. The snorkeling is only OK, but if it's a social life you are seeking, this is the place for you. Don't miss the Barrier Reef Sports Bar when you go:
Placencia is similar to Ambergris Caye in that the beach streatches for miles and there are bars and restaurants located all along this sand highway. We recommend the Barefoot Beach Bar (at right).
