Tobacco Caye Paradise Resort is located on the Belize Barrier Reef. Its cabins overlook the Caribbean Sea.
A small Belizean-own lodge with six private “over the water” beach cabanas situated on “stilts” in the sea. The cabanas face north and have wonderful decks perched over turquoise tropical waters. Each deck has a hammock and a fantastic view of the Caribbean Sea. Accommodations are clean, comfortable, and charmingly rustic.
Cabanas have private bathrooms and rainwater-fed showers. However, there are no electric or water utilities on the island; they collect rainwater and generate their electricity from solar panels and generator power.
They have Wi-Fi access on the island. Tasty meals are available in the dining hall, where you can dine with fellow travelers.
The Belize Tourism Board has awarded Tobacco Caye Paradise Resort Gold Standard Certification in recognition of hygiene and health safety measures to ensure the wellbeing of our guests and employees. Particularly during the Covid 19 pandemic.
The Best Season to Visit
The best time to go depends on two important questions, the temperature, and the rainy seasons. Keeping in mind that this is the tropics, both those factors can be extremes.
The Belize country has subtropical climate, with predominating north-eastern trade winds from the sea. Average temperatures fluctuate from 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 Celsius) to 95 degrees Fahrenheit (32 Celsius).
This subtropical destination is marked by a wet season from June to October and a dry season from November to May. So, the majority of tourists prefer to travel to Tobacco Caye Paradise Resort through the “dry season”. However, you can still expect some rains during this period. The rates do not change based on the time of year. They are consistent year-round. Hotel rates varies with type of accommodation you want to book. For instance, a cabana will cost you $80 per night in average. They also offer budget accommodation for those backpacking around the world. Some budget variants,such as guestrooms start from 25$ per night per single person.
Rooms & Services Available
While only 10 miles east of the mainland town of Dangriga, it is primarily off-grid. Tobacco Caye Paradise Resort offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner when you select the meal plan when booking. You can grab a drink or a snack at the two bars on the island. The bars on the island accept USD and Belizean as well as Credit Cards. Another exciting thing you can look forward to is coconut palms brushing the roof of your cabana with the occasional coconut falling. They use filtered rainwater on the island.
Private deck Paradise offers snorkeling gear rentals, as well as kayaks and paddle boards. The water is crystal clear, and there is much to see. You will meet great people and make memories that will last forever. Relax, slow down. When snorkeling off the local reef, you will see sting rays, an endless variety of coral, and colorful tropical fish. As the title says, it is truly an island paradise. You might also want to hire Captain Doggy to take you Barracuda fishing.
