There is so much offered – please make sure you have time to take advantage of everything, but most of all make sure you have time to relax in one of our hammocks on the beach! ☺
Interaction with Guests
Once booked, I’ll send you a multi-page document with further information on the condos, the resort, and the area. And of course I’m happy to answer any questions at all via email or phone!
In addition, you are connected with our concierge team who can help you with island flights, golf cart bookings, tours, etc. Our concierge team together has nearly 30 years experience living on Ambergris Caye and can answer any questions you may have before your arrival and during your stay! We also have an on site caretaker at the resort who can help with any questions or issues that may arise.
Ambergris Caye, “La Isla Bonita”, is a popular tourist destination. San Pedro is a quaint little town of about 13,000 residents that has retained its charm while handling the growing number of visitors. Sunset Beach Resort is located 2.5 miles/4 km south of the town core, which means you are away from the crowds yet still within easy reach of everything. Not only will you be able to enjoy a restful day on a quiet beach, you will have a quiet night as well – no bar or restaurant noise, just swaying coconut fronds and the occasional fish jumping in the water!
Town is not far away when you want to go in for some live music, shopping, restaurants, etc. But there are things close by too; here are a few things within walking distance of Sunset Beach:
--Suya Tour operators (1 minute walk)
--Marin’s, a small grocery store (2 minute walk)
--Restaurants: Lone Star Grill & Black Orchid (4 minute walk)
--Island Time Beach Bar & Grill (10 minute walk)
--A beach yard filled with coconut sculptures! (5 minute walk)
The Belize Barrier Reef, the longest in the western hemisphere, is just 1/2 mile (1 km) off shore. Sit on the beach or your veranda and you can see the waves crashing over it! The water is warm and crystal clear--ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing.
It's also easy to take a day trip from the resort to visit Maya sites such as Altun Ha and Lamanai; or a trip to observe some of the 500 species of birds found in Belize and/or catch a glimpse of monkeys, manatees and crocodiles in the wild!
Most people rent golf carts when visiting Ambergris Caye (it’s not possible to rent a car). Our concierge team can arrange your golf cart rental and have it waiting for you at Sunset Beach on your arrival if you wish. Rental costs depend on the cart size and time of year but start at about US$275/week.
As mentioned, there are also complimentary bikes & kayaks available at the resort. It’s about a 10-15 minute bike ride into town.
It’s also possible to walk to town, either via the beach (40 minutes to an hour, depending on how fast you walk) or via the road (slightly longer).
Taxis are also available.

About the Host, Barbara, Vacation Rentals In Belize & Colombia
I've lived most of my life in the U.S. but have also lived for a couple of months to up to two years in different countries: Germany, Spain, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador & Belize. Since 2011 I've been living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle while exploring, working & volunteering in new & old places in North, Central & South America and Europe -- right now I'm in Colombia! It's a great way to keep learning!
I was lucky to meet a couple from Dallas, who own the Cartagena, Colombia, & Ambergris Caye, Belize, vacation rentals I'm listing. They asked me to help them out and I've fallen into doing something that I love -- helping people like you with their travels. Let me help you with your dream vacation!
We also partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with Fundación La Vecina, a community organization in Cartagena, and in Belize we partner with Ambergris Caye Elementary School (ACES) and the Saga Humane Society in San Pedro. We'd love to have your help!
