Tobacco Caye Paradise - Belize

Tobacco 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).

About Tobacco Caye

Tobacco 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.

Paradise Scuba Package

We offer a 3-night or 4-night scuba diving adventure package . The Paradise Scuba Package is a perfect way to explore the world second largest barrier reef from stunning Tobacco Caye. After starting with several local dives just a stones throw from our home base, we travel further afield to Southwater Caye to explore its fascinating cut in the reef. For those choosing to spend an extra day diving, we travel out to Glover's Reef to dive it's world-renowned wall dives. An amazing experience that combines well with several other of our experiences in Belize.
