Natural wonders, ancient monuments and pure relaxation on a Caribbean paradise island.
You’ll find Victoria House nestled among tall swaying palms and tropical gardens, with the scents of hibiscus and bougainvillea in the air, on the white-sand shore of Ambergris Caye. Lay in the sun on the hammock outside your thatched-roof casita, or slip into the pool of your private beachfront villa, and feel the stress melt away.
The pristine beach and warm sun are a big draw, but the ocean just minutes off the coast of the hotel is hiding a bigger one: the second largest barrier reef in the world. That, along with teeming sealife and clear water, make Victoria House a mecca for water sports fans. You can learn to dive if you’re just starting out, or take a much deeper plunge into the Great Blue Hole or Shark Ray Alley if you’re looking for something more challenging.
There’s lots to explore on land and below too: you can walk the remarkably intact ruins of the ancient Mayan civilization, or head underground into caves the Maya considered portals to the underworld. Back in the land of the living, you’ll find bars and restaurants in the lively town of San Pedro just a bike ride away.
