I will be traveling to Belize and I was wondering what the Basil Jones area of the island is like.

Also, any info and prices on available 1-2 bedroom condos near San Pedro would be great.

I think the Basil Jones area is the prettiest part of the island.The isolated beaches are wide with lots of palm trees.The water is very clear and the reef is close to shore.Best of all no boat traffic.All you hear up there is the wind in the palms and the surf crashing on the reef.Good fishing, snorkling and beach combing.Check out for a good history of the Basil Jones area.In case you are wondering I own property up there so I spend most of my time there.It's isolated but that's what makes it special.Basil Jones area takes about a 40 minute boat ride to get there but worth the trip.

Night Life??Just the stars and the critters.At this time there is no resort up there.Just a few homes.Late this month we will be staying at Casa Caribe which is several miles to the south.So we will just walk up to our property and spend the day.If you want to charter a boat to visit there from town may cost you $50 US.
Hi,Sandshaker!!See you Dec. 30.

Great pic's of the construction! Doesn't look like the storm had much affect on the plant life. Didn't get the opportunity to visit that far north on the Island last summer, but plan to do so this June. Will have to check in with you prior to the trip.

ScubaLdy - Thanks for the insight --What prices are you refering to??

Is it hard to get to San Pedro from Basil Jones, & what is the preferred means of transportation?

I am interested in the Basil Jones Resort, but I also want to enjoy other parts of the island. Any suggestions??
