San Pedro ©
San Pedro evolved from small fishing village and now represents one of the most visited locations in Belize.
Spend the 23rd (Sun) exploring nature at Bacalar Chico National Park and Marine Reserve. The adventure continues: explore the gorgeous colors at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, identify plant and animal life at Mexico Rocks, and don't miss a visit to Shark Ray Alley.

Plan my trip to San Pedro with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Chetumal, Mexico to San Pedro is an approximately 15-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Chetumal to San Pedro due to the time zone difference. December in San Pedro sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) so you can travel to Caye Caulker.
