Harvest Caye does feel like a resort, complete with a 15,000-square-foot pool with a swim-up bar and energetic music, a man-made 7-acre beach with hammocks and 2,500 chairs for lounging, a splash playground for tiny tots and a free nature park.
For fun, there is a zip line that will take you 1,300 feet across the caye, or enjoy the lagoon with kayaks and paddleboards.
There isn't a free meal to be had on this island; instead, guests can select from the restaurant and island bars, operated by the locals. The island's artisans also sell their arts and crafts in the caye's traditional-style straw market.
Those wanting to truly visit Belize can hop on the ferry for an excursion.
