My husband and I are looking at a week in Belize in March of 2001. We want to dive and snorlel and like remote areas. A rustic room on the beach with snorkeling at the front steps is all we need.Is Ambergris what we are after or would one of the other cayes suit us better? Does anyone know of some reasonable places to rent where we can also get food? Will appreciate any and all imput.
Thanks!

Look north of the "cut" (Boca del Rio) for more seclusion on Ambergris Caye. You can find some very nice houses for rent. If you truly want rustic, them some of the outer cayes are supposed to have a few options. I believe Glovers Caye has a nice inexpensive spot for camping/lodging. Check out http://www.ambergriscaye.com/seaside/ for some other Ambergris Caye options.

There is really no good snorkeling off the beach on Ambergris (the reef is several hundred yards out). There are some places close to shore where a little artificial reef attracts fish, and there's a good deal of life in the seagrass, but for great snorkeling off the shore you'd need to go someplace like South Water Caye which is directly on the reef. You might look at the Pelican Beach cottages there. It's a small, remote island with not much else to do other than eat, sleep, dive, snorkel, swim and fish. There are a few other islands on or near the reef that are like that in central and southern Belize.
