On the way back to San Pedro after 5 nights at Tranquility Bay, my son pointed out that the problem with all the other places we passed is that there were no yellow t-shirts. This was after a truly heart-warming sendoff from the dock by several of the people who took such great care of us and became our friends in this piece of paradise. I am reluctant to name names as I don't want to miss anyone, but thank you to everyone who made our vacation so wonderful.
The isolation, the proximity to the reef, and the beautiful beach are all wonderful reasons to choose Tranquility. It would be excellent for anyone, but for a family I can't imagine a better place to go. My kids (ages 8 and 11) were never bored - they swam, they snorkeled, they played in the sand, and they sat with their friends who worked there and chatted. On the snorkeling tour we did all the guides watched out for them and made sure they were safe and included. The restaurant staff knew them and their preferences and treated them with much kindness.
The cabins were clean and comfortable, and quiet. The resort was full, but even at that it usually felt like we almost had the beach to ourselves.
We would love to return to Belize, and if it works out one day we would certainly return to Tranquility Bay.
