Would you like to meet new people?
In Belize, it is easy to meet other people. Belizeans welcome you into their country with open arms and would give you their last dollar if you needed it. Since English is the official language of Belize, it is easy to communicate and befriend locals. Just enter any bar or coffee shop and you’ll see.
But, in addition to exploring and meeting people on your own, our friendly staff facilitates guest interactions. One way we do this is by utilizing Whatsapp. We chat with guests before and during their stay in San Pedro. We coordinate boat trips for the guests and give daily updates on where to go for live music and fun activities on the island. Let us guide you around to fun places and introduce you to our friends. If you’re working remotely, find a fun group of people to spend days or weeks with during your free time at Drift Inn. Also, enjoy evenings getting to know guests from around the world from the comfort of our courtyard and the beachfront restaurant next door.
Do you want to be close to town?
At Drift Inn, you’ll be steps away from anything you need at Drift Inn. Staying in town has many perks you don’t get staying north of the bridge or south of town in Ambergris Caye. With those – you’ll need to rent a golf cart for your entire stay. You’ll spend hours of your trip commuting to town for meals and activities. If you’re on a budget or time crunch or enjoy the convenience of being walking distance to everything you should stay in town. From Drift Inn you can walk to almost anything you need in San Pedro. Then, with just a 24-hour golf cart rental visit Secret Beach and cruise around for fun.
