Conceived as a starting point for charter explorations of the islands off Belize, the Catamaran Island is now a full-service hotel built on a sailor’s paradise of lagoons and coves. Famous for its aquatic ambiance, its 36 bungalows look out onto the Rio Dulce, one of Central America’s most beautiful ecospheres.
The Catamaran Island Hotel is more than just a lodging: it’s attached to a marina and leisure complex that features canoeing, windsurfing, fishing, scuba diving, and much more. When you visit, you can ride horses in a tropical forest or identify exotic birds from your patio. Whatever you opt to do, however, don’t miss happy hour in the Catamaran Bar: its piña coladas and margaritas are legendary.
