Pura Vida is a boutique hotel on the southern end of Caye Caulker. It offers just 5 rooms and a private dock and beach that make enviable spots to admire the sunset. There’s even a rooftop terrace where guests can enjoy the breeze.

You’ll walk past a selection of beachy bars and restaurants before you arrive at the Caye Caulker’s “Split,” where you can admire the turquoise water that surrounds the island. Go check out the sailing and jet skiing opportunities that surround its balmy shores. It’s also not too far from here to the nature tours at Ambergris Caye’s Hol Chan Marine Reserve, and diving and snorkeling tours to the nearby Belize Barrier Reef.
Every unit has air conditioning, as well as a small kitchenette. In the kitchen area, you’ll find a toaster, blender, and a refrigerator — and keep in mind, there are plenty of small groceries within walking distance for easy meals to prepare in your room. There are rooms that come with fold-out futons if you’d like to have some extra guests for the night.
The rooms are breezy and lit with plenty of natural, Caribbean light and flatscreen cable TVs. You can access Wi-Fi throughout the hotel grounds. Each room has a bathroom with a hair dryer.
There is a pool right on the grounds, surrounded by comfortable loungers. When you’re having some downtime, check out the hammocks on the dock. Besides the kitchens in your room, you’ll also have access to an outdoor grill on the rooftop patio.
These rooms are spacious, very clean, have a kitchenette and bonus: WATER cooler right in your room. Staff was very helpful. We loved the location, the rooftop, the adjacent pier across the road over the water which had chairs, hammocks and swings. Would love to return one day.
