Jefe's Island Adventures: What To Do - Or Not Do - That Is The Question!

| clicks: 15138 | Jefe's Island Adventures   

I’ve always been an outgoing guy, which is probably what helped me make so many friends and earn the title of “the world’s most interesting dog.” Now that I live on a tropical island, many of my old friends want to come visit, and today I found out a dear friend is coming soon. I’m pretty excited, but there’s one thing bothering me.

He obviously hasn’t been reading my blog.

I know because the first thing he asked after he said he was coming to visit was, “what’s there to do at Ray Caye Resort?”

As if being treated to delicious food and drinks, and being completely pampered at a world-class resort on a private island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, and not having to do anything he doesn’t want to, isn’t enough for him! Hmmph!!

Being the gentleman I am, I didn’t tell him to go read my previous blog posts or check out our Ray Caye website. I said I would make a list of some of the possible activities so he could come prepared. Since I get asked similar questions by some of my readers, I thought I’d share the list with all of you too.

If you enjoy the water, there’s an assortment of water toys, like kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats, and even Hobie “cats” (small sailboats). All our guests have unlimited use of any of the water toys, and the staff will even give you free lessons!

Then there’s snorkeling and diving. Our Pirate Reef Dive Shop can help you plan your own self-guided snorkel tours around the island or book a guided tour. They also offer custom diving trips, lessons, and diving certification, and you can bring your own equipment or use ours. The night snorkeling is an amazing treat for those who want to see the different marine life that is attracted to our lighted pier after dark.

Of course, Ray Caye Resort can also set up and provide equipment for any kind of fishing trip, whether a jaunt to the reef to catch some seriously large, deep-sea fish, or an exciting fly fishing trip in search of a “Grand Slam,” or an even underwater adventure spearing the invasive (and destructive) lionfish

There’s plenty to do right here on the caye too. There’s almost always someone who’ll join in a pickup game of volleyball or football. If you prefer to stay in the shade, there’s a variety of board and card games available in the lounge at the Lionfish grill, where you can let your competitive side shine, and enjoy a cocktail at the same time.

Or, if you’re like me and prefer to totally decompress when vacationing, there are less strenuous activities like lounging by the pool, sunbathing on the beach, doing some self-guided yoga on the pier, or taking a walk around the island for a little bird-watching. You can even take time out for a massage or body scrub, and then draw the shades in your room for a lazy afternoon nap in your comfy cozy bed.

Wow, that seems like a LOT of activities. I guess I’d forgotten there’s so much you can do, or not do (your choice!) at Ray Caye Resort...

Until next time, stay adventurous, my friends!

PLEASE NOTE:

In 2019 Hatchet Caye changed its name to Ray Caye. Because of this, some of the older blog posts will refer to Hatchet Caye and the newer ones will refer to Ray Caye. Either way, they are the same private island you have come to love.
