We're looking into Ambergris as a possible destination for a break from our ccccccccold Vermont winters. We like to snorkel (been to the Caymans twice and loved it there) and would like to try cave tubing. We'd prefer to stay at a place that can offer a bit of privacy, but not too far from good restaurants and shopping. Our budget is moderate. We appreciate any input. Thanks!!!

Seven Seas

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Try The Tides - great rooms, great management and an excellent dive operation.
Close but quiet location.

Both of the above suggestions are fine. Also consider Tradewinds Paradise Villas. They are a little closer to town (Shopping and Restaurants). Tradewinds Paradise Villas also has a large pool, fully equipped suites (daily maid service, veranda, 1 and 2 bedroom units, Kitchen, Ocean front and poolside rooms) and a full service tour operation to handle any activities including snorkeling. You can check it out at

Check out Caribbean Villas via this web site. Rooms and suites, 12-15 minute walk to town, quiet, only 10 rooms/suites on 2 acres of land with bird sanctuary; Xanadu is in same neighborhood and is also quiet.

Ahhh, but if you stay at 7 Seas, you can walk right around to the back and be at Papi's! Good food, cheap and Papi is a wonderful host! I've even run over at8-9 to grab a quick burger to go after a long day of sun, water and Belikens!
