While San Pedro’s  town core is loaded with restaurants, stores, boutiques and more! There is certainly much more to explore if you dare to venture off the beaten path. A drive north beyond the resorts and paved roads  took us on a ride filled with scenery that made me understand just why so many fall in love with Ambergris Caye.

North Ambergris

While it is not prohibited to drive along the Northern beaches we do ask however that if you decide to take on the adventure to practice caution while driving, as our beautiful beaches are also turtle nesting grounds! Most turtle nesting beaches are further north of El Secreto Resort, commonly Basil Jones and Punta Azul areas, but it’s always encouraged to be mindful and keep a look out for nests and turtle crossing any where on Ambergris Caye 🙂

With that said please do enjoy the view!

I don’t think we’re in San Pedro anymore 🙂

“Beach in the Habaneros Area not commonly known to be turtle nesting site.”

Isn’t this a spectacular view, absolutely no filter needed!

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
