Tobacco Caye Paradise is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we are currently working with the Belize Tourism Board to get our Gold Standard Certification. We do not have a definite opening date, but hope to open for winter 2020. We will post updates on this site, as well as through our social media channels. Thank you for your understanding.
Tobacco Caye Paradise - BelizeTobacco Caye Paradise is a small Belizean-style vacation property with six private "over the water" cabanas. We also offer Budget accommodation for those backpacking around the world. Our accommodations are clean, comfortable and charmingly rustic.
Our property is completely off-the-grid! While there are no electric or water utilities on the island, we collect our own rainwater and generate our own electricity from solar power (only use a generator when absolutely necessary). Please note we do not produce enough energy to provide AC or hot water so be prepared for refreshing cool showers, and natural sea breeze to cool down your room. We also have fans in every room.
Delicious Belizean meals are available in the dining hall, where you can dine with fellow travelers and share the day’s adventures. We also added a deck to the dining area, so you can enjoy a nice view while having your meals or drinks by the water.
We provide 24-hour front desk manager assistance, housekeeping, and delicious meals. Wi-fi is available on the property for a small fee. Wifi access available in many places and rooms throughout the property. Satellite internet is slower and sometimes intermittent (we are off-grid, please consider that).
We also offer: kayak, snorkel gear and SUP rentals to all our guests and visitors.
About Tobacco CayeTobacco Caye is the perfect tropical getaway - a location unlike any other along the Barrier Reef. With a year-round population of only 30 and no televisions, public telephones, the island is the perfect place to relax in a hammock and unplug from your busy life back home.
This palm fringed five-acre islet is part of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, a 17,878-acre offshore wonderland for divers, snorkelers, and kayakers.
Tobacco Caye is located in the middle of the Belize Barrier Reef at the northern edge of the South Water Caye Marine Reserve. It is approximately thirty minutes offshore from the town of Dangriga in central Belize. Access is by boat, and water taxi service is available from Dangriga and Hopkins. As you approach your destination by boat, this idyllic gem reveals itself from behind the Tobacco Caye Range. Swaying coconut palms and calm, turquoise waters await you. You can enjoy world class snorkeling right off the shore. The east side of the island has the Belize Barrier Reef as a backdrop, offering you some of the best SCUBA diving in the Caribbean.
Rainforest & Reef Adventure PackageWe offer a year-round adventure package for Belize. The Rainforest & Reef Explorer package combines two off-the-grid Belize favorites - Bocawina Rainforest Resort in Mayflower Bocawina National Park and our very own Tobacco Caye Paradise. This package starts and ends in Dangriga and includes accommodations, meals, activities and round-trip transfers.
