The Palapa House
Put the "Ease" in Belize
The Palapa House Beach Resort, on Ambergris Caye, is the ideal vacation spot! Wake up each morning to beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea on your veranda! Location, location, location! Walk over to Chuck and Robbie's Dive Shop and grab a "once in a lifetime" dive/snorkel excursion to the second largest coral reef in the world!!! Spend the afternoon in an inner tube at the world famous Palapa Bar and Grill or walk five minutes on the beach to the shops and restaurants in lively downtown San Pedro. Need to just chill? Grab your favorite book and sit by the seaside pool with your favorite beverage (Grocery stores are nearby) Whether you're looking to get away from it all or wanting an action packed adventure, The Palapa House is the perfect home base. Most resorts need a golf cart to get around; optional at The Palapa House! All mattresses, linens and towels meet North American Four Star Resort standards. This is NOT your typical hotel mattress! Seven out of eight units have quiet central air conditioning units in lieu of noisy mini-splits or hotel AC units. Quiet comfort on the beach is our motto at The Palapa House! Every room has a modern walk in shower and most have cool barn doors for the bathroom and closet. The 1st floor and 3rd floor have exposed beams and the Penthouse has 14’ ceilings. There is nothing like this in San Pedro for this price! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is here to help you arrange the vacation of your dreams!

Belize Food Tours
One of the best ways to experience Belize (San Pedro to be exact) in all its charm is to rub shoulders with the locals and eat where they eat. This tour is amazing! Several to choose from and some of the best food you will EVER eat! This is a must do if you love food!
Come sail away, come sail away come and sail away with me! This is the spot for amazing catamaran day trips and sunset cruises. Make sure to ask for Junior and James. They also do diving and fishing trips. The all day booze cruise to Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker is awesome. Cave diving, the Mayan Ruins and Zip lining are some more of their famous tours!
The Palapa Bar and Grill
A restaurant AND an attraction!
Great food and drinks on the pier just a few hundred feet down from the Palapa House. It doesn't get much better than this! Jump into an inner tube, listen to some tunes and have bartenders serve you beer while floating in the ocean. Cheers!
