You arrive on Ambergris Caye for your fabulous Caribbean vacation and are expecting sunny days to enjoy the beach and of course, go out on a snorkeling or diving tour. All of a sudden, that splendid sunshine time is taken away by a cloudy day with rain showers. Well, this time of the year in the tropics often calls for chances of rainy weather conditions, and it is good to be prepared. So, what do you do then if staying all day in your room is not the ideal plan? Don’t worry, we got you covered. Here are four activities you can enjoy on Ambergris Caye on a rainy day in Belize as you wait for the skies clear up.
Sign up for a delicious class at the Belize Chocolate Company on Front Street. Here, you can learn all about the process of making quality chocolate, from cacao farming to the harvesting of the cacao beans, which then become delicious chocolate loved by many beyond Ambergris Caye. Every week, Belize Chocolate Company receives a fresh batch of cacao pods all the way from a local farm outside of the Maya village of San Antonio in Toledo. Cutting them open for people to taste the sweet pulp, the class is usually in the mornings, but you can check at the shop for specific schedules and prices.
There are several coffee shops in town to choose from. This includes Lavish Habit on Barrier Reef Drive, Green Espresso Café Bar on Pescador Drive, and if you don’t mind a drive south of town, Rum + Bean at Mahogany Bay Village. Grab a warm cup of coffee or try any of the variations of their frozen coffee blends.
A yoga lesson under a palapa over the water is another option to enjoy that cloudy and wet day. One of those places near town is Victoria House Resort & Spa or the Ak’Bol Yoga Retreat northward. Call to reserve that moment of relaxation and meditation during the cozy rainy spell.
