San Pedro, Ambergris Caye

San Pedro ©
San Pedro evolved from small fishing village and now represents one of the most visited locations in Belize.
Spend the 4th (Tue) exploring nature at Bacalar Chico National Park and Marine Reserve. There's much more to do: stroll through Hol Chan Marine Reserve, cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, explore and take pictures at Shark Ray Alley, and look for gifts at 12 Belize.

Plan my day in San Pedro using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

New York City, USA to San Pedro is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Traveling from New York City to San Pedro, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from New York City in August since evenings lows in San Pedro dip to 78°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) so you can travel to San Ignacio.

The cultural hub of the district, San Ignacio neatly blends tourism and tradition, expats and indigenous peoples into a convincingly authentic, but modern and welcoming inland town.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Ignacio: Belmopan (Guanacaste National Park & Blue Hole National Park). There's much more to do: Head underground at ATM Cave Belize- Actun Tunichil Muknal, steep yourself in history at Xunantunich Mayan Ruins, tour the pleasant surroundings at Green Iguana Conservation Project, and explore the galleries of Cappello's Art Gallery.
