Hi all!

We stayed with Raymond at Ocean's Edge Lodge in Tabacco Caye 4 years ago and loved it, but it seems to have dropped off the map as far as guide books and the internet are concerned. Does anyone know if they are still in business and/or contact info? We also met Gerald and Carmita there and they took us out to see their resort (Sacrifice Resort) on the way back to the mainland. We would like to spend a night or two with them as well if anyone happens to know their contact info. We know what to expect, but to us Belize is more about the people than the accomadations. We're comming back in May and any help would be much appreciated!


Happy 10 A.M. smile

When I google it all I get are (really bad) hotel reviews, but no contact info. Did you find something else? Would you mind posting a link for me? Thanks laugh

I know that tobbaco caye diving is not running anymore I think where the reviews are concerned Tobbaco Caye is an aquired taste and the accomodations are not really up to scratch for the price you pay for them.

I can easily see how people could arrive there with the wrong expectations and be very disapointed. When I stayed there I loved the location and proximity to the reef but amazed nobody actually fixed up one of those places to resonable standards as they would have a cracking location.

For a few more bucks, better accomodations, a larger caye, less people and inns and on the reef, look at South Water Caye.

I've visited Tobacco Caye several times when I've been staying at Thatch Caye (nearby) and IMO it's a tropical slum. I agree with Gaz's comments, and also with Katie that Southwater Caye is FAR nicer.

Tobacco Caye is not high end but it surely is quiet. I loved it and stayed there several times. Take books. Relax... smile

FYI..this was a while ago and it looks just like that youtube clip.
