Fodor's Expert Review Costa Blu Dive and Beach Resort

Beachfront, 6.5 miles (10.5 km) north of town, Ambergris Caye, Corozal, Belize

With tropical colors and aqua accents, this new resort invokes the ocean at every turn and makes a great resting place between your marine tours. The staff is warm and welcoming and all rooms have an efficiency kitchen. The airy restaurant, with chic restraint indoors and a palapa outdoors, has a menu ranging from pizza to coconut snapper but is a touch overpriced. Costa Blu works with local dive shops and hires some of Ambergris’s most reputable guides. Other outings include sailing, kayaking, and mainland tours. Complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, and bikes are a plus. Recently opened, this is the fourth operation of Sandy Point Resorts, so it benefits from seasoned management.
