Cayo Espanto , Belize

Cayo Espanto is a luxurious Caribbean private island resort in Belize.

Discover your own private island at Cayo Espanto, Belize, where paradise and luxury come together as one. This five-star, world class resort offers travelers the best life has to offer.

We invite you to spend your evenings enchanted and your days engulfed in the Caribbean waters that surround each private villa. Located three miles off the coast of San Pedro, Belize, Cayo Espanto is truly an unforgettable private island retreat.


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.

When you arrive at Cayo Espanto, your only worry will be where to relax first: in the plunge pool, at the water’s edge, or on the twin lounge chairs at the end of your very own dock. No worries about jockeying for position on the sand; the seven beach villas are situated so that you may not see another guest for the duration of your stay.
