  • Menus that can be tailored to your individual needs
  • You can rent the whole island
  • Casa Solana, the most secluded of the villas located on the western tip of the island


Located just off Ambergris Caye lies Cayo Espanto, a private, four-acre island with just seven villas in a laid-back-yet-luxe Caribbean style, with crisp whites, vibrant tropical colors, hardwood floors and architecture that catches the sea breeze.

Every one to two bedroom villa is expansive (from 1,000 square feet to 2,500 square feet), has a private pool and is situated to ensure seclusion and privacy. Casa Ventanas is the only over-the-water villa but all other villas are right on the water’s edge so everyone gets their share of the sea.

All-inclusive rates include a personal butler, three tailored meals per day, beverages (including most alcoholic beverages), your favorite snacks and the use of kayaks and a sailboat. If you decide to leave your villa, fly fishing, snorkeling and SCUBA diving trips are available on the world’s second largest barrier reef.

Who Should Stay

Anyone who has “sleep on my own private island” on their bucket list; anyone who wants to stay at the resort visited by such celebrities as Leonardo DiCaprio.
