My husband and I and two of our good friends recently stayed at the Villa Case Buena. It was our second time on the wonderful island of Ambergris Caye and their first ... we stayed at Wolfgang's casita three years ago. I could easily vacation in Belize, at Wolfgang's every year for the rest of my life. Wolfgang and his crew, Elden & Merta go the extra mile to make your stay there perfect! Wolfgang took us on a tour of San Pedro, showing us all the best places to shop and eat! The villa had everything we needed and more!
If you're looking for a place to simply relax, read a book, soak in some sun, play in the ocean, then this is your place. I am going to miss waking up and having my coffee and coconut rum cream on the patio overlooking the ocean waters and feeling the ocean breeze.... then at some point we have to make the decision .... do we want to just sit here a little longer and just cut up some fresh fruit from Maria's roadside fruit stand for breakfast, or do we want to jump in our golf cart and ride into town to find a place for breakfast? Such decisions!
Elden was so helpful to us -- getting us water taxi tickets at discounted prices for our day trip to the neighboring island of Caye Caulker. He also hooked us up with the right people for the most awesome day of snorkeling you can imagine. We chartered a sail boat (the four of us and the couple staying in the Casita), snorkeled in four locations, and while we snorkeled, the crew spear fished for our lunch, which was served to us on the sail boat. It was the highlight of our trip... also the best lunch we had on the island!
We did have some other very good meals -- and you will find the best food and the best prices at the places where the locals go! One little gem was the Pupuseria Tipico Salvadoreno (we had great and cheap pupusas and the highlight was the lobster burrito (not like any burrito you've ever had). Robins for Caribbean Jerk Chicken.. and right next door is Harry's Burgers & Beer - good burgers & fish burgers.
And of course there is Cookie (Wolfgang's loyal four-legged companion). Cookie was up to greet us every morning and just hang out with us! In the afternoon, we looked forward to greetinig Wolfgand, Cookie & his other dog Tiger coming back from their daily walk on the beach -- Cookie with his newly fetched coconut to add to his collection.
Missing it already!
