There are about 10 overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean up to this point, and so far every one of them is a small boutique resort, usually featuing excellent scuba diving. The St. George’s Caye fits that description perfectly, with an excellent location adjacent to the second largest coral reef in the world. This is a popular resort with divers, but it’s also great for any kind of tropical getaway.
One unique thing about this resort is that they don’t allow anyone under the age of 15, so obviously this is not a family resort unless your family is all adults. Being a small resort it seems a decision was made that allowing youngsters to run riot all over would spoil the romantic atmosphere that so many couples come for.
The St. George’s Caye Resort works on an all-inclusive basis with the room, meals, and even unlimited rum punch being included in the base price. The scuba diving is extra, which is true of other resorts in the region, and this makes sense because no one would want to pay a huge extra price if they only wanted a dive or two during their week-long stay.
It’s important to note that this resort is quite posh in many respects, with nightly turndown service and fresh juice included daily, but there are no TVs in the room so guests are meant to be spending time outside in the evenings or in restful solitude.
Hi we are planing a trip to Puerto Rico in early 2024. We would like to spend a portion of our 10 day vacation in an over the water bungalow. Im lookn for the closest place and also if a passport is required for us travlers. And probably a bunch more questions. Thanks.
The only overwater bungalows remotely close to Puerto Rico are at the Sandals in St. Lucia. They are amazing, although not cheap. And you would need a passport, unfortunately, but at least you have time to get one. -Roger
