Cayo Espanto Island Resort - San Pedro, Belize

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.
