Cayo Espanto is a private island resort three miles off the coast of Belize near Ambergris Caye. Seven luxury villas, each with its own private dock, face blue waters, infinity pools, hammocks, and perfectly raked sand. There are five one-bedroom villas and two two-bedroom villas, as well as one over-water home where you can see the fish swim beneath your feet. Two committed butlers look after you and provide complete privacy until you walkie-talkie them to satisfy your desires.
All-Inclusive Options or Rent Out Cayo Espanto!
With all-inclusive rates starting at $1,695 per couple, this premium getaway isn’t cheap. Is there another option? For roughly $15,000 per night, you can rent out the entire Cayo Espanto to a group of up to 18 people. This price includes indulgence, including personalized menus created by a professional chef and a staff determined to make your holiday one to remember. From arrival (when you’re greeted with champagne) through departure, every moment is full of surprises (when you find your dirty laundry washed and folded for packing ease). The concierge can organize extraordinary off-island adventures such as a helicopter cruise above the Great Blue Hole or a tour of ancient Mayan ruins.
An Island with an Awesome View
While getting to Cayo Espanto requires a few steps, the resort makes the procedure as painless as possible. After arriving in Belize City, a representative from the island will meet you and take you on a local flight with Tropic Air to San Pedro, which takes around fifteen minutes. (A negative COVID-19 test is required for entry in Belize, but if you don’t have time to get one in the three days leading up to your arrival, you can take a fast test for $50 at the Belize City airport when you arrive.) Before returning to the United States, you’ll require a negative COVID-19 test.) Another friendly face will greet you in San Pedro and escort you to the Cayo Espanto boat, which will take you to the private island in 10 minutes. You’ll know you’ve arrived in paradise as soon as the island comes into focus and you see the employees lined up to greet you (all wearing their characteristic masks, of course).
After a long journey, start your fantasy holiday with a massage to calm your muscles. The expert hands of the on-site massage therapist are a delicious pleasure whether you choose to have your spa treatment on your private dock, in your villa, or on the beach.
Outdoor Movies Under the Stars
You might be wondering what to do in the evenings in Cayo Espanto because there isn’t much nightlife. Your dedicated butlers have a range of special pleasures in store for you, such as setting up a private movie theater on the beach. On other nights, a bonfire, stargazing, and s’mores may surprise you.
