- Ikal Spa provides the opportunity to have their Hot Sea Shell massage in Moon light up the Moonlight tower!
- Killer 'special' mojitos available from the bar

Thrillseekers may wish to go cave tubing and explore the underworld of the Mayas.
I would just like to add that the help / service we received from Melissa Hookway was oustanding. It was very personal and I was made to felt like a valued client.

Only accessible by boat, El Secreto is a secret island hideaway on Belize's Ambergris Caye just minutes away from the town of San Pedro. Drawing inspiration from the region, each of the 13 exclusive individual thatched roof villas display a smart combination of contemporary and traditional design elements, such as fine Belizean tropical woods, marble finished bathrooms with a tandem bathtub, private Jacuzzi and outdoor rain shower.
During your stay, there are a variety of activities for you to enjoy such as fishing, diving or snorkelling. Bicycles are available to borrow should you wish to explore the island, or perhaps you could visit the nearby site of Lamanai on foot or by helicopter. With fresh fish delivered daily, foodies can indulge to their hearts content in tasty dishes of lobster ceviche, carpaccio and black bean empanadas, and your juice in the morning freshly squeezed and delivered to your door.
