The country, which borders the Caribbean, boasts more than 200 islands or “cayes” scattered around the world’s second-biggest barrier reef. The largest and most visited of the islands, Ambergris Caye is a haven for nature lovers, food aficionados and party animals.

Here’s how to make the most out of this vibrant island.

Get a taste of Maya culture at Elvi’s Kitchen, a popular dining spot for tourists and locals that started as a carry out window more than 40 years ago. On Friday evenings, the buffet highlights the best of traditional dishes such as pork pibil wrapped in banana leaves, handmade tortillas and Pollo Tikin Xic — grilled chicken marinated with oranges and Maya spices.

For more local taste without the frill, El Fogon serves up a spicy, deep-fried fish of the day that keeps the place packed. A full cocktail menu makes it easy to spend a full evening here.
