There are two choices for golf:
Caye Chapel Golf Resort (7,005 yards, par 72) This beautiful 18-hole seaside course occupies much of Caye Chapel, a privately owned island between Belize City and Caye Caulker. You can go by water taxi from San Pedro. Challenges include brisk prevailing winds from the sea and the occasional crocodile. Caye Chapel, 16 mi northeast of Belize City, tel. 501/226-8250. Unlimited golf for the day, clubs, cart and poolside lunch, US$200. Daily 9-4.
Roaring River Golf Club (1959 yards, par 32) If you've ever wanted to play golf in the jungle, this new 9-hole course near Belize's little capital, Belmopan, is your chance to do it. Don't expect a country club setting, but it's fun. The setting on the pristine Roaring River is ideal, and you can even take a dip in the river. Mile 50 1/4, Western Hwy., 2 mi west of Belmopan, tel. 501/820-3031, US$30 including clubs. Daily.
