Directions to Cayo Espanto
Getting to Belize is easier and faster than traveling to most any other major Caribbean destination. On the mainland, there is plenty to experience and explore in this eco tourism-friendly country – Mayan ruins, the Jaguar Preserve, countless birding expeditions, and world-class scuba diving and snorkeling. But with little effort – a 20-minute plane ride to Ambergris Caye and a 3-mile boat ride – you can bask in beauty and end-of-the-world-style luxury at Cayo Espanto resort.
Cayo Espanto is located on its own private 4-acre island, 7-minutes by boat from San Pedro. American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest, Copa Airlines, Aeroméxico, Avianca, Sun Country, WestJet, Air Canada and Delta Airlines offer service to Belize City.
When you arrive at Cayo Espanto, your only worry will be where to relax first: in the plunge pool, at the water’s edge, or on the twin lounge chairs at the end of your very own dock. No worries about jockeying for position on the sand; the seven beach villas are situated so that you may not see another guest for the duration of your stay.
Once you arrive at Cayo Espanto, the award winning chefs leave no decisions for you to make. A new menu is created daily to perfectly suit your tastes, based on a survey you are asked to fill out before you even arrive on the island.
Winners of awards from all over the globe, Cayo Espanto’s master culinary artists prepare the most succulent dishes with the freshest tropical ingredients in the world. Whether it is breakfast in bed or a candle lit dinner on your personal veranda, the epicurean cuisine at Cayo Espanto is nothing short of tantalizing. The personalized creations are an awakening to the palate.

A stay at Cayo Espanto is about discovering the tropical islands and enjoying the water. Although most of the guests come to Cayo Espanto to relax in privacy, there are others who spend their time exploring – by land or sea.
