San Pedro (Ambergris Caye) Prices & Travel Costs

San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is one of the most expensive places in Central America, and it’s more expensive than nearby Caye Caulker, but compared to many Caribbean islands it’s a bit of a bargain. Backpackers and other low budget travelers should probably head to Caye Caulker instead, though a few cheap and basic one-star hotels do exist in San Pedro city. Other hotels range from pleasant to resort villas, with prices to match.
