Belize CASTAWAYS ISLAND (A complete island resort takeover)

Summer 2025 Plans Announced Soon for more Belize Adventures:  Stay Tuned!

This new adventure is a fun follow up to a similar venture Castaways Travel sponsored a few years ago for a complete resort takeover on Belize’s Ambergris Caye. We dived Belize’s Mayan Barrier Reef, 2nd largest in the world besides Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and had a BLAST.

NOTE: The trip in this page is for a Castaways complete Belize island takeover, but it’s not Ambergris Caye.

Castaways Travel - Castaways Island

Belize is great fun. When you do decide to dress: It’s shorts, T-shirt or Tank top, a hat, sunscreen, sundress and flip-flops…..or nothing at all. Don’t miss this unique clothing optional getaway with adult-themed privacy….except of course for your newfound friends and the great staff that will spoil you rotten and keep you entertained night and day.

So, where the heck is Belize? It’s a little over an hour south of Cancun or Cozumel by air. The northern border of Belize is the southern border of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. Your final mainland destination is 20-25 minutes south of Belize City by Mayan Island Air to Dangriga. It’s a short shuttle transfer to the dock for your 20-25 minute boat trip to CASTAWAYS ISLAND.
