The Banana Beach Resort is located on the powdery white sands of Ambergris Caye, just south of the main town of San Pedro. Known as a haven for fun and adventure, this resort has become a favorite location for idyllic weddings which the staff will gladly help in arranging.
Ambergris Caye is the largest of the many islands that speckle Belize’s reef, the second largest reef in the world and the largest in the western hemisphere. With the reef’s location in the beautiful Caribbean waters it offers some of the world’s best dive and snorkelling experiences and of course some excellent opportunities for fishing and other water sports such as sailing, kayaking or just swimming. As the caye is only a 20 minute flight from the mainland though, jungle trekking and other great adventures can also be easily arranged for there.
A large variety of rooms are available but whichever choice you make, your room will be beautifully furnished by way of rattan furniture and exquisitely decorated with hand-woven tapestries from the Yucatan and ceramic art. The rooms themselves range from a Three Bedroom, Three Bathroom Ocean View Suite with private balconies and verandas, AC, ceiling fans, cable TV, living room and fully equipped kitchen, to a one bedroom accommodation that has a veranda and kitchenette.
