If you are considering a visit to Ambergris Caye, you absolutely must buy this book. We too fell in love instantly with this little island, (just like Rebecca describes) after our first visit in 2013. We bought property, and have been visiting several times a year since. We have been following the author, Rebecca, on her blog, "The San Pedro Scoop" since the day we first arrived for her helpful and always timely information. Her love and passion for Ambergris Caye is undeniable, and her knowledge and recommendations are always spot-on, very honest and authentic. This book is not a typical tourist guide, but rather an amazing and comprehensive compilation of all the BEST things Ambergris Caye can offer any visitor, as experienced from her personal perspective. And that is exactly what makes it so good. It IS personal, goes straight to the heart, just like Ambergris Caye! There truly is something for everyone, and no matter what type of vacation you are looking for, she's covered it all! I am so delighted she wrote this guide, and will be buying multiple copies for all my future visitors.
This book is a must read for any first timers, seasoned veterans or anyone interested in learning about the most beautiful Island of Ambergris. As soon as it was available I downloaded the book. We have been to the island many times and are excited to have our own personal tour guide in electronic form. Ironically we are at the island now and are using it as a tour guide to experience new adventures. I highly recommend this book
We have been to Ambergris Caye six times since 2012 when we fell in love with San Pedro on our honeymoon. Rebecca managed to not only list our favorite spots, including putting our VERY favorite on the map at the start of the book, but she also managed to give me some information that I didn't already know! This book is a very true-to-life guide to Ambergris Caye, and I wish we had had access to it when we first started traveling to Belize because it's VERY hard to get good, up-to-date info about this lovely place :) It made me want to go back right now, and I heartily recommend it to anyone looking to travel to Belize in general and Ambergris Caye in particular.
This book was very helpful from an informational standpoint. We just went to Ambergris Caye 2/1-2/8/20 and the book helped us plan our trip very well. We did most of the 50 things we wanted to do! (not all 50!) The biggest disappointment is there is NO CLEARLY DEFINED MAP to use in the book. She states they are readily available at any gift shop. We did not find one. We were constantly looking up locations on the internet, but not all in our group of 20 people had internet in Belize. Downloaded maps we printed out were fuzzy and not useful enough. The basic line is: Ambergris Caye is VERY SAFE and FUN to visit. The book is helpful BUT NEEDS A PULL OUT MAP with all her 50 special locations indicated on it!
We have visited Ambergris Caye 3 times over the past 3 or 4 years. We fell in love with it almost immediately and on our second visit purchased a little piece of our future. This book captures all of reasons we fell in love with this place in a neat, little package. Many of the suggestions we have experienced for ourselves, but there were so many that we have not and I cannot wait for our next visit to check out more! -- If you are considering a visit to this area of Belize then this book is a MUST HAVE. -- Rebecca, I have been following your blog since right after our first visit. I was in search of learning more about this lovely place from a local's perspective, and your blog was the ONLY thing like it I could find. Thank you for taking the time to visit all of these places and sharing your experiences with the world.
My entire family are now reading this book in preparation for an upcoming trip. Rebecca Coutant's writing style is awesome, this book is laden with humor and advice that feels so genuine. The title promises 50 activities to do in Ambergris Caye, but the desciption for each activity contains additional suggestions and specific ideas for getting the most out of your visit to the island. All in all I suspect there are closer to 70 big experiences listed in this book. Published in 2019 so you know the suggestions are still fresh! Thanks Rebecca!
Bought this insightful guide to Ambergris Caye to research for an upcoming trip exploring the island for future group travels. We were apprehensive about travels to Belize in general but this down to earth description of current fun things to do and things to see has been enlightening and should be a must read for anyone planning a first trip. What a great guide. Thanks Rebecca we’ll enjoy the trip.
It is awfully hard to boil-down the myriad options to partake in the food, culture, and fun of Ambergris Caye, but this is darn near perfect. If a first timer were to use this as a roadmap to sample the island, hitting just half of what Rebecca suggests, you would have a blast and feel enriched beyond belief. Amazing work.
This book is great. I haven't been to to Ambergris Caye yet, but I LOVE this book and plan to use the information to guide many of activity and eating/drinking choices during our stay. A great combination of local knowledge and flavor, unexpected or less common activities, plus advice on some typical "touristy" things I was unsure whether to do but she advises are well worth it. Can't wait to do the local food tour - totally my kind of thing. I love the details about favorite eating and drinking establishments as well as business and activities. Thank you for writing this!
