Cayo Espanto, Belize
Cayo Espanto, a luxury island beach resort off the coast of Belize, is elevating the private-island experience to a higher plane.
As a landmass, there isn’t much to Cayo. A sandy path winds through a forest of palms down the center of the 4-acre island, branching off to each breezy, mahogany detailed villa, which is screened from its neighbors by silver-trunked black mangrove trees. The focus is on the spectacular villas. And their focus is on the outside world of turquoise and royal blue. The island rises just a foot or two above the surrounding waters, which are the favorite haunt of bonefish. The elusive speedsters are sport fishing’s most prized catch, and Cayo Espanto, Spirit Island, could be named for these silver ghosts of the flats. But it isn’t really about the fish.
THE ULTIMATE RETREAT
World class snorkeling, Scuba diving, catered meals, attentive staff, and massages are all a little piece of wonderful which awaits you at Cayo Espanto. Anglers come from all over the globe for the unbelievable fly fishing and climate. Whether it is bonefish, tarpon, barracuda, parrot fish or snappers, the chase is all around. Graced with an average temperature ranging from 23C (73F) in the winter to 29C (84F) in the summer, Cayo Espanto has the perfect weather for a dream vacation.
