It’s worth noting the roads are not paved for much of the way and can certainly add to your vacation adventures. While taxi service is available on island (pay direct), most of our guests enjoy the convenience and novelty of renting a golf cart. You must have a valid driver’s license and be over 18 to drive a golf cart. Reservations are required; the cost will simply be added to your incidental bill for payment upon departure.

Q. WHAT IS CASA CANGREJO’S ADDRESS? CAN I SHIP ITEMS AHEAD?

A. We don’t stand on formalities here on the island. Casa Cangrejo is the third house after Las Brisas.

Additionally, your items could get stuck in customs – for a very long time. In other words, shipping your items to Belize is not advisable.

Q. IS THERE A SAFE?

A. Yes.

Q. HOW IS THE BEACH? CAN WE SWIM OFF THE BEACH?

A. The beaches of Belize have Seagrass or "Turtle Grass" growing, this is harmless and in fact is an important part of Belize’s ecosystem. This grass can grow in our shallow waters as we have such strong protection from the World's second largest barrier reef. This means our waters are warm, calm, and shallow for quite a way out and we do not for the most part of traditional walk-in beaches. For guests wishing to swim in the Caribbean, our dock has stairs leading into the water, diving is not permitted. Please note: periodically, Belize, along with other areas of Central America, The Caribbean, Mexico, and USA, will experience periods of Sargassum Seaweed washing ashore. Sargassum Seaweed comes from the Sargasso Sea in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and is normally kept at bay by water temperatures and currents. We work diligently to keep our beach clear; however, guests should be aware when visiting coastal areas that seaweed may be present.

Q. IS THERE A POOL ONSITE?

A. No.

Q. DO YOU PROVIDE BEACH TOWELS?

A. Yes, one per person.

Q. CAN WE DRINK THE WATER?

A. We start you off with 5-Gallons of purified drinking water in a dispenser. Additional 5-gallons can be provided upon request.

Q. IS THERE A DUTY-FREE SHOP ON THE ISLAND?

A. There is no duty-free shopping available on island. When you arrive in Belize, there is a duty-free shop at baggage claim where you can stock up on liquor and other items if you’d like.

Q. HOW CAN WE GET GROCERIES?

A. We can provide recommendations for provisioning services in advance of your arrival or you can grocery shop once you are on island.

Q. ARE THERE RESTAURANTS, BARS OR GROCERY STORES NEARBY?

A. Nothing within easy walking distance. The closest small grocery store is approximately 2 miles away as are the closets restaurants and bars.

Mighty Fine

  • 5 of 5

Maurice Livingston was a very professional helping us organizing our golf cart and the "Day at sea". I highly recommend this Day at sea with Allen and George for not only are they, excellent host but also very knowledgeable of the environment not to mention great cooks. After catching plenty of snappers we had a wonderful meal before snorkeling the reef.

The property is isolated from San Pedro which suits my style. The private dock makes a great place to unplug.

Do be aware of insects whenever you visit a coastal property. Mosquito repellant and baby oil for noseeums (sand fleas) will keep you out of trouble.

Enjoy your visit!!!

Amazing place to stay with amazing staff

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough things about this home. It is wonderfully furnished, air conditioned, and has a beautiful set of land with amazing staff. If anything was needed the management team was incredibly quick to respond and assist. A couple of things I would note before booking, this home is a fair distance away from the 'downtown' part of the island -- although if you have a golf cart it is only a 15-20 min ride. Also, the water off and around the pier is quite weedy so I would have liked to known that prior as we didn't swim much because of that-but the home itself more than compensates for any of those things. I would highly reccommend this home.

Secluded and adventurous just like we hoped

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cangrejo is a gem, perfect 3 bedroom for 6 with alll the latest setup, we rented a golf cart for the short 15 min ride into town, were picked up on our own private pier for fishing and catamaran adventures. Caught enough fish to last 4 days and enjoyed the kayaks and personal bbq grill - so cool !
