Ambergris Caye (often called San Pedro, after its only town) is one of the most-visited areas of Belize. Located only 35 mi/55 km northeast of Belize City, its resident population of nearly 10,000 expands with tourists, part-time expats and construction workers building new hotels and vacation condos. It has more than 150 resorts, hotels and "condotels" (small low-rise condo developments managed like hotels).
Ambergris is an informal island where shoes are optional everywhere—a place for maximal relaxation. San Pedro offers some of the best, most varied restaurants in the country. At night, live music can be found in the island's bars and clubs.
