About Ramon’s Village
Ramon’s Village is a relaxed and welcoming tropical sanctuary nestled in a garden of royal palms, bougainvillaea, lilies, hibiscus, and dozens of other types of tropical flora. Scattered amongst the plant life are various Mayan sculptures, providing a glimpse of the civilisation that preceded this Caribbean paradise. And, though the resort features everything you’ll need to enjoy a nice vacation – including an inviting beach, spa, swimming pool, and restaurant – it is also conveniently located within walking distance of San Pedro, providing the freedom for visitors to create their own personal experiences.
During their stay, guests are accommodated in a wide variety of charming cabanas. Styled after the Polynesian cottages of Bora Bora, these accommodations are built from native materials by local craftsmen, utilising the same skills and techniques used to build beautiful and sturdy sailing ships many years ago. The resort is named after its original manager, the late Ramon Nunez, who, as the first certified scuba diver in Belize, was asked to guide the legendary Jacque Cousteau aboard the Calypso while he explored the world renowned Blue Hole. No great surprise then, that the onsite Ramon’s Village Divers is the oldest and most respected dive shop in the country.
Explore the resort
The resort’s onsite restaurant, Pineapples On The Beach, is one of Ambergris Caye’s very best restaurants. Located right on the beach, this casual, open-air eatery offers fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea, along with additional thatched roof palapas for guests who prefer to eat outside. Tropic Al’s is the resort’s poolside refreshment bar, crafting delicious smoothies made from Belize’s finest fresh fruits and gourmet coffee brewed by professionally trained baristas. At the centre of this resort, guests will find a 25-metre lagoon-style swimming pool surrounded by palm trees, authentic Mayan sculptures, and tropical flora and fauna native to Belize. Lounge chairs are positioned around the pool area for sun-soaked relaxation.
Ramon’s Village Resort boasts its own onsite spa, located directly on the beach under a palm thatched palapa located between the pool area and the Caribbean Sea. Here, guests can let capable therapists pamper them with massages, manicures, pedicures and facials. While staying at this resort, guests can take part in a wide range of activities such as snorkelling, beach picnics, cave tubing, zip lining, Mayan ruin tours, jungle treks, hiking, fishing, and more. Ramon’s Village also features two well-stocked boutiques – Ramon’s Village Outfitters and The Tiki Turtle Trading Company. Together, these two outlets sell everything from clothing and sunglasses to souvenirs and scuba gear.
