Fodor's Review

A good, though pricey, base for fishing, snorkeling, and diving trips, this Belizean-owned resort at the north end of beautiful Southwater Caye is only 50 yards from the reef. Accommodations, which spread out over half the caye, range from cozy wood cabins to a trio of concrete dome "igloos" to standard rooms. You'll sleep so close to the sea that the sound of lapping waves may lull you to sleep. The resort has its own PADI dive shop and boats for diving and fishing. Swap

stories with other travelers in the bar and restaurant. Packages start at BZ$4,400 double for three nights in a standard room including meals, transfers, a snorkel tour, and taxes. Extra-cost upgrades include private cottage and dive and fishing tours. Rates don't include Southwater Caye Marine Reserve fee of BZ$10 a day or airfare to Belize.
