About San Pedro
When you’re associated with a chart topping song by one of the world’s most popular recording artists, you must be doing something right.
Madonna’s La Isla Bonita, beginning with the line, “Last night I dreamed of San Pedro” is widely considered to be a tribute to Ambergris Caye and the island’s main town of San Pedro. And after one visit to “The Beautiful Island” of Belize, you’ll quickly make the connection.
Whether you arrive by boat or fly into San Pedro’s John Greif II Airport, the minute you step ashore you’ll know you’ve arrived someplace special. With Belize’s famously wonderful weather further enhanced with Caribbean sea breezes, postcard perfect scenery complete with swaying palm trees, thatched roofed bars and restaurants, golf carts plying cobblestone streets and an unmistakeable Caribbean ambiance, Ambergris Caye and San Pedro are the very definition of an island paradise.
And for an island only twenty-five miles long by barely a mile wide, Ambergris Caye boasts an amazing variety of things to do – from swimming, snorkelling, diving and fishing to enjoying vibrant island nightlife. From formal to swimsuit casual, San Pedro has you covered – or uncovered, as the case may be.
After spending some quality island time on Belize’s La Isla Bonita, don’t be surprised to find yourself singing:
“This is where I long to be
La Isla Bonita”
