For clothing pack shorts, t-shirts, sandals, bathing suits and sarongs. Ladies, bring something frilly and beachy for a night on the town (but forget the high-heels as they do not do well in sand!). Fancy dress for men means a shirt with buttons. Ambergris Caye is a very casual place – shoes are not required anywhere. Don’t forget your sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray and hats! If you have snorkel equipment bring it along so you may explore the reef in your own villa kayak. Bring a couple of small flashlights for moonlight strolls along the beach. If you have craving for certain snacks or have special dietary needs please inquire about availability in San Pedro. If you forget something, chances are it can be purchased in San Pedro – from casual clothes to drugstore sundries, the town is well stocked with all the basics of daily life.
Bring a fair amount of US currency in small (20’s are fine) denominations. Traveler’s checks are also a good idea to have along. Seascape accepts all major cards including American Express. Larger shops, hotels, restaurants and tour companies take Master Card and Visa, and a few take American Express. There is an International Banking machine at Belize Bank should you need to access funds that way. While at Seascape you can charge almost everything to your villa and settle the bill at the end of your stay. The official exchange rate is $2 Belize to $1 US. Credit card companies and bank machines charge you a fee for conversion. Cash can be traded at a direct 2 to 1 rate in shops and at the occasional “casa de cambio”. Ask for assistance from the Jazz staff.
Of course! If you are hoping for a generic air conditioned mall you’re in the wrong place, but that is what most folks love about San Pedro. Small shops carry a wide variety of jewelry, art, wood carvings and an almost infinite variety of really clever t-shirts. Gifts of Belizean hot sauces, jams and savories; or jungle herbs and spices are also available throughout San Pedro. Ladies – there are some pretty incredible hot-weather dresses and beach-wraps available as well.
There are fine dining and casual eateries within a 3 minute beach walk from Seascape, and many more within easy access by a bit longer walk, or by cart or water taxi. “In the neighborhood” – "O" Restaurant, Rendezvous Restaurant and Winery, Caliente, Blue Moon, Capricorn and Rojo Lounge. In Town – Blue Water, Casa Picasso, Fido’s, Mesa Cafe, and Elvi’s – the list is too long for this information package, but we will supply you with a complete directory when you arrive. San Pedro is a GREAT place to eat. From a little hole in the wall with home-cooked rice and beans to world class cuisine – it’s all here for you to explore.
Various bars and discos around the island provide an opportunity to enjoy local music and to mingle (and dance) with a wide variety of people. Several times each year there are town festivals that offer unique entertainment. Your Villa consultant will provide you with the latest information.
Seascape Villas is predominantly adult oriented but we can accommodate children and their needs.
Absolutely! Ambergris Caye is extremely safe. You will find the Belizean culture one of the friendliest in the Caribbean and Central America. People are always willing to lend a hand or engage in a conversation or story. Do bring a flashlight for your evenings outside the villa – without one there is the possibility of tripping over a coconut or a sleeping tourist.
That’s a great idea, take a look at our Things to Do! We have selected partners that we highly recommend. Do you want to take a sail? Learn to scuba dive? Get an exclusive spa treatment? Go cave-tubing? Snorkeling, fishing, and Mayan ruin trips are available every day. Just let us know and we’ll arrange everything for you. For your convenience we will charge your activities to your Villa account which will be settled before departure.
When you found Belize you were already 80% there – add Seascape Villas as your home away from home and you have arrived. Seascape is far enough from town to avoid the bustle and noise of daily commerce, yet close enough to put it’s amenities within easy reach.
