Where is Indigo Belize?
Indigo is located 4.5 miles north of San Pedro town on Ambergris Caye in Belize, Central America. It is about 20 minutes in a golf cart from Indigo to San Pedro town center. Ambergris Caye is about 36 miles from Belize City. Belize City is about 13 miles (25-45 minute drive) from BZE, our international airport in Ladyville.
The whole of Ambergris Caye is about 1/4 mile away from the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world.
Indigo is a small collection of 15 privately owned condos, all 3 bedroom. The property is on the water and each condo offers spectacular views.
Belize has 186 miles of reef which span our Caribbean waters from north to south. This is the 2nd larges reef in the world, and the worlds largest LIVING reef. Because of the reefs proximity to our country we don't have "typical" beaches that you find in other places. Here on Ambergris Caye, in Caye Caulker, and on Caye Chapel we have almost no waves. The reef acts like a shelf. East of the reef is open water, the deep blue sea. West of the reef varies in depth from a few inches to perhaps 15-20 feet. Most shore lines are wading water, many docks have only 4-6 water surrounding them.
Do I need to exchange my US currency?
Exchange is not necessary, all vendors/stores accept US currency. Please be sure your bills do not have rips or writing on them.
Cash is preferred. Some places only take cash, but most take credit cards. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted, a few places accept Amex and Discover. Most restaurants take credit cards. Frequently a credit card processing fee is added to the transaction. Some credit cards companies may add additional international transaction fees, check with your bank or credit card company for details about your card. It's always a good idea to notify your credit card company or bank that you will be traveling. Credit Unions and Banks often block charges from international sources, unless notified. Frequently a minimum of $20/BZD is required to run a credit card.
Some vendors take only cash such as produce stands or small vendors, trinket stands, bakeries. A few stores offer cash discount such as the 10% cash discount at The Green House for purchases over a $100/BZD. You need to ask for this discount.

What are the Risks on Ambergris Caye?
Sunburn is the greatest risk, bring lots of sunscreen and reapply often, the sun is directly overhead and much stronger than most north American's are accustomed to. Sun hats and rash guards can also be a great help.
Mosquitoes and bug bites: Wear bug spray, especially around foliage, after rain, and at sunrise and sunset. Typically the risk near the beach is low as long as the sea breeze is present.
Petty theft: Do not leave valuables or belongings unattended on the beach or in town. Indigo is 4.5 Miles from San Pedro in the safe, quiet, and Tranquil Mata Grande neighborhood. We have full time day employee's and night security for added safety. Our island vibe is laid back, dress is casual, and flip-flops a must. It's advisable to leave your valuables such as gold, diamonds, and jewels at your home, there's little need for them here.
We are traveling with children, is there any concern?
Children can do just about everything there is to do in Belize, we have many families visit our country and partake in activities.
A note from the U.S. embassy, “U.S. citizens traveling with minor children may be asked by immigration officials to show U.S. birth certificates for each child. When children are not traveling with both parents, immigration officials often request signed documentation to establish the children are traveling with the permission of both parents. Such documentation may include notarized letters from the parent(s), custody or adoption papers, and death certificates in situations where one or both parents are deceased.”
If your are traveling with your children and both parents are not present U.S. immigration may request a notarized document giving permission for the child to travel. Please be sure to check with the U.S. embassy and have the required documents before arriving at your international airport in the U.S.
Are there restrictions for people with disabilities?
Generally speaking, Belize is not well equipped for persons that are disabled. However, if you are not wheel chair bound, you should be fine. On Ambergris many roads roughly paved and golf carts are the main mode of transportation. Most of the terrain is sand and beach. A few places have entry ramps, but mostly it's steps.
Where do we buy food?
If you would like to order provisions for your vacation you can do so at www.matagrandegrocery.com Tammy and Justin do a fabulous job of making sure your condo is stocked before you arrive. Keep in mind most items cost more here than what you pay at home, so shopping at duty free and bringing dry goods such as peanut butter, cereal, and granola bars can be convenient and more economical. A welcome meal is also recommended. One of our cooks can prepare a delicious Belizean meal that will be ready in your condo at your arrival or later in the day. You may also schedule additional meals for your stay. Please advise us of any specialty dietary needs when making the reservation. We have a number or grocery stores in town that you stop and shop at before coming north to Indigo, or, you can take your cart to town as most people do.
Protect our Reef, our waters, and our way of life
When traveling to Belize please bring or purchase reef safe sunscreen and natural bug spray. Help us keep our country beautiful for generators to come so your children and ours will enjoy it's beauty, as we have.
