Our visit to Itza Resort at Long Caye was our second in over a year and a half. The new management team has done extensive renovations to the rooms, and the result is a wonderful improvement. We took a group of 14 divers there for a 2-night stay in February, and wished we could've stayed longer. The management and crew were very warm, helpful and accommodating. The food and service was great. The snorkeling and diving from Long Caye is world class as it sits on Lighthouse Reef atoll with the great Blue Hole in close proximity, and other famous dive sites near Half Moon Caye and Long Caye itself. The walkways that lead you through the littoral forest of mangroves and other shorline tropical trees are enchanting. Kayaking is a must, and this location is great for kitesurfers. The views from this secluded location are stunning. If you go, you will want to return. We, at Avadon Divers, will definately be taking more diving groups out to Itza Resort at Long Caye again and again if we can.
