Getting Here and Weather

When booking an international flight, which airport do we choose?

Choose BZE (Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport, Belize City). You benefit by the unique location of St. George’s Caye – 1) the shortest travel time to any island resort; 2) we greet you when you arrive and bring you to our marina and to the resort; 3) you pay nothing for your transfer (with minimum stay); and 4) easiest access back to the mainland for jungle adventures.

Which airlines serve Belize?
Direct non-stop flights to Belize are available with United Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Alaska Airlines. Direct non-stop seasonal (Nov to Apr) flights to Belize are available with Sun Country Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Jet Blue and Frontier Airlines. Additional flights are available through WestJet, Air Canada, Avianca, Copa and KLM.
Do I need a visa to travel to Belize?
U.S. and Canadian citizens can visit Belize with their passport; no visa required.
What is the charge for the airport transfers?
Airport transfers are included with any stay 4 nights or longer.
If I’m staying somewhere else in Belize before or after St. George’s Caye, how do we handle transfers?
Just let us know your travel plans—our staff will pick you up and drop you off anywhere in Belize City. If you are flying to or from another destination within Belize, be sure you use the MUNICIPAL airport—this will save you money and time.
When I look at the weather report for Belize, it shows rain. Is it really going to rain on my vacation? When is the best time to visit?
First, don’t believe the weather forecasts because they are for the mainland, not for our island. Second, understand that “rainy season” does not mean it rains most days – quite the opposite. See details on our Location & Weather page.

Health and Safety

Is it safe on St. George’s Caye?
Our island is very safe. We are on a remote island with very few inhabitants besides our amazing staff who live here, and there is no public transportation to St. George’s so we don’t have unwanted visitors. We provide safes in your rooms should you want to lock up valuables and you may lock your room when you’re not in it. We also have a night watchman who patrols the grounds after dark and is available for guest emergency needs.
Can we drink the water at the resort?
We make our own drinking water and it’s safe to drink directly out of the tap (we filter rain water, and when there isn’t enough rain, we filter sea water using reverse osmosis). You may also purchase bottled water from the lounge in the main lodge or from the mini-bar in your room.

Activities and Meals

What activities are complimentary?

You get unlimited use of our kayaks, paddle boards, Hobie Cat sail boats, and snorkeling gear (for snorkeling off the beach/docks). You have 24/7 access to the saline swimming pool, and you may Try SCUBA in the pool with an instructor. See the Rooms & Rates page for full details on what’s included.

Do we need to pre-reserve diving or excursions?
You can arrange your activities and excursions with our staff after you arrive. We do schedule 48 hours ahead so it is best to let us know before you arrive if there is something you want to do on your first full day. (We offer packages that include the most popular activities and excursions.) The one exception is guided fishing because we need to ensure the availability of a professional guide for you. Fishing should always be pre-reserved.
Can I get my open water diving certification at the resort?
We have several incredible dive masters and instructors on staff to assist you, whether you’re a long-time diver or wanting to get certified for the first time. We offer a variety of SCUBA diving training and certification courses. If you’re planning to get certified, we recommend you do the classroom reading and studying ahead of time so you can maximize your time in the water while staying with us.
Are my meals included at St. George’s?

Yes. Since we are the only business on the island, we provide a meal plan for all guests. Learn more about Dining with us. (Meals are included with all of our packages.)

Are all drinks included?

We have coffee and tea available any time, and we serve fresh made juice with meals. We also include your first Rum Punch on the house every day. View details of our meal plan on the Dining page. Our full-service lounge, the Sand Bar, is ready to serve you from morning through evening.

Miscellaneous Questions

Where can we buy souvenirs?
We have a small gift shop in the main lodge featuring useful items and handicrafts made by native Belizeans who live in the villages our staff members come from. There are many items available at the Belize airport as well. We also offer an all-day excursion, the San Pedro Slam, during which you can do some shopping and experience the multitude of beach bars, restaurants and galleries.
Are there TVs in the rooms or lodge?
Most guests come to our island paradise to relax and unwind so we do not have televisions anywhere at the resort. We do offer complimentary WiFi service in the main lodge and outdoor dining area so you can stay in touch with friends and family.
