We had been waiting all year to visit our favorite, Cayo Espanto, again! Our second visit was just as fabulous as the first.
We wanted so much for our three daughters (ages 7, 9 and 11) to experience this tropical paradise with us, that we decided to bring them along. We were hesitant because one of the reasons people love coming to Cayo Espanto is to enjoy the luxury of peace and privacy. We were a bit concerned that our children may cause a problem for others, yet the island assured us that all would be fine. Once we arrived, we realized that we had made the right decision. The island is set up such that every villa (there are 7) is so incredibly private and secluded in it's own way, that it was as if our little family were alone on a tropical island together. The experience we had could never be duplicated at at a resort. Taking our children out of the hustle and bustle of the world was magically bonding for our family. The staff took great care in creating special activities just for us! Watching my children snorkel for the first time in the crystal, blue waters was something I'll never forget. The sea life one can see here (without having to deep sea dive) is rivaled only by a few other places in the world. Every day was filled with excitement and at the same time was refreshing and rejuvenating for my husband and me.
The service at Cayo Espanto was again... impeccable!! The staff always seemed to know just what we needed (wanted!) without our even asking. We have traveled extensively throughout the years, and we can honestly say that there is a true difference between the service here vs any other. Always smiling, energetic, respectful, and creative.
Chef Patrick and Chef Richard are simply amazing. Everything we were served was absolutely delicious, and the presentation was always beautiful. I cannot say enough about the food! It was always over the top perfect!
Traveling to Cayo Espanto is so easy. You are able to leave in the morning and arrive by lunchtime which gives you another full day. The staff is there to help you from your arrival at the Belize airport all the way to the island which makes it so simple and problem free. We loved our private boat ride with German, the fantastic island boat captain, from the San Pedro airport directly to the island. It's a short ride, but just long enough (I believe 7 minutes) to make your arrival so exciting. The entire staff lines up to welcome you with your favorite frozen beverages. (They are actually there to greet you each time German brings you back from any boating excursion!)
Our trips to Cayo Espanto are always worth the money. Whether you are searching for a tropical paradise for pure romance, for peace and privacy, or for a magical bonding experience for your family, there is truly no other island like it!
