The island of Ambergris Caye in Belize is located 35 miles offshore from its mainland. It is reached via a 20-minute commuter aircraft flight forward from Belize City. Ambergris Caye's airstrip is the only paved road on the island. The streets through the laid-back little town of San Pedro are just packed with sand. There are relatively few cars on Ambergris Caye, with walking, bicycles and golf carts providing most of the mobility. Many North Americans have purchased land on Ambergris Caye and they have opened numerous small Belize hotels and lodges catering to scuba divers and fishermen.
