Resort with Waterfront Cabanas on Private Caribbean Island
The Belize Barrier Reef is the second-longest reef in the world. It’s dotted with hundreds of islands, or cays, just off the coast of Belize. Eight miles from the mainland, Yok Ha Resort has one of these private Caribbean cays all to itself. The resort has exclusive access to some of the best snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving in the world. And Dangriga, the cultural capital of Belize, is a short boat ride away.
Yok Ha Resort comprises five brightly colored cabanas scattered along the edge of the Caribbean Sea. One is red with yellow trim, another is fuchsia, and a royal-blue unit opens onto a yellow-and-orange porch. The most secluded cabana, Loa—or “Beautiful Lady”—is ideal for couples, with a private deck hovering over the water. The Chaac deluxe cabana also has stunning ocean views, and the oceanfront standard rooms have private verandas and exotic furnishings.
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the island. You can hop into one of the complimentary kayaks or rent scuba gear from the onsite dive shop and explore the offshore coral reefs. The resort also offers a number of half- and full-day tours—one takes you to Belize’s famous jaguar preserve, which also has howler monkeys and pumas. Back at the resort, Chief’s Place serves complimentary meals, including three-course dinners with fresh seafood specials.
Stann Creek District, Belize: Wildlife Sanctuaries and World-Renowned Scuba Diving
Waterfoot Caye is one of the many islands located off the coast of Belize, sitting 8 miles from the mainland. Stann Creek District is situated at the heart of the country’s central region and is one of its top tourist destinations.
Mayan history: The Mayans occupied this region as early as AD 250, and the interior landscape is still strewn with impressive ancient ruins set against the Maya Mountains.
Excellent scuba diving and snorkeling: The Belize Barrier Reef—the second-longest reef in the world—runs the length of the coastline around Stann Creek; Eagle rays, octopuses, dolphins, and sharks are just some of the creatures that inhabit its cays and atolls.
Dangriga: From the shore, you can walk to Dangriga, the capital of the Stann Creek District and the historical home of the Garifuna people.
