Cayo Espanto is a 4-acre private island surrounded by warm tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea. A seven-minute boat ride from San Pedro brings you to this island paradise with just seven luxury villas. Each ocean-facing villa has an expansive deck and plunge pool to give you total privacy. Rooms are furnished with colourful decor and luxury bedding with ceiling fans or a/c. Every villa comes with an open-plan living room and kitchen, and everything from cocktails to spa treatments is tailored to meet the demands of each guest.
Cayo Espanto has a terrific on-site massage therapist and an extensive spa menu. Located within minutes of the second largest reef in the world, the scuba diving and snorkelling opportunities are unmissable. The island is 20 minutes from The Belize Barrier Reef with its colourful underwater world. We highly recommend a private yacht charter to the famous Blue Hole (please let us know in advance, so we have plenty of time to organise the boat, dive instructors and crew).
