Belize is our Central American Jewel, sparkling in the middle of unexplored jungles and numerous natural attractions. When it comes to making you feel at home, being the only English-speaking country in Central America gives Belize an edge. We are bordered by Guatemala, Mexico, and the sparkling Caribbean Sea, which is where our little Island lies.
Our whole country is smaller than the state of Massachusetts! Yet, for such a small country, we lay claim to a huge barrier reef!
Our healthy and growing Reef is the longest in the Western Hemisphere (approx. 200 miles)! It comprises more than 170 cayes (like ours!), 3 atolls (gorgeous underwater aquariums), mangrove systems, flats (for fly-fishing!), and wide-open expanses of sea.
Our waters cover 200 nautical miles and our sea territory ranges from Ranguana Caye to the Sarstoon River, an area of 12 nautical miles.
We are best known for our amazing diving and snorkeling sites, atolls, and cayes, all located along the 185 miles long Belize Barrier Reef.
Ray Caye Island Resort offers a unique vacation alternative to the hustle and bustle of Belize’s larger island and mainland beach destinations. Our Private Island, off the coast of Placencia in Belize, caters to travelers who are looking for an exotic and fun vacation that is also authentic and natural. Our island resort has everything you’ll need and more to ensure a great time at Ray Caye whether it’s for a day or a week. Getting to Belize is easier than you may imagine; with daily international flights from many cities across North America and Canada, arriving at the Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Ladyville, Belize.
The Lionfish Grill is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 am for breakfast. Our daily menu is served from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm. Dinner is served from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Dine in the restaurant, poolside, or at the end of our covered pier. Ask our server about private dinners for special occasions (room service fee applies; subject to weather & staffing).
Ask to speak with the Chef at your first mealtime if you have any food allergies. The bar is also open from 7:00 am until as late as you like.
If you would like to visit Placencia Village for a few hours or an entire day – check at the bar for boat transfer times – we would be happy to have you catch a ride to/from the mainland when we come in to pick up guests or supplies as long as we have a trip already scheduled.
You will find a safe, AC remote control, and Power Card in your room. Should you have any issues or need help with any of these gadgets please let the bartenders know so that they can call Maintenance to come and assist you.
Our dive shop and adventure center stocks most of the items most commonly forgotten while traveling! We also carry sundries and drinks for in-room snacking.
WiFi is found all over the island. The connection offered is not meant for streaming or video chat, but more for checking email and messaging. Limited cell phone service is available at the LionFish Grill, and, ‘time and charge’ paid calls are available at the office. You can find WiFi codes on the back of your room door.
Electricity is standard U.S. 110 volt, 60 cycle AC from our inverters charged by our solar panels and backup generators. We want you to be comfortable but encourage energy conservation as well. Our water is potable, produced by our reverse osmosis desalination plants. Rainwater is harvested and hot water in each cabana is provided by a solar heater.
Remember, you are visiting a tropical island paradise. You may find insects and mosquitoes, depending on the weather. We encourage you to use insect repellent when necessary to avoid bites and itches.
