Ranguana Caye

A picture-perfect private island of your very own.

Staying at this 2-acre private island is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, especially if you're lucky enough to see one of the turtle nests hatch. Located off the coast of Placencia and right off the Belize Barrier Reef, Ranguana Caye is the island destination of your dreams. Hang at Bully's Beach Bar or in a hammock. Play beach volleyball, giant Jenga, or other island games. Try your luck paddleboarding or host your own kayak competition. Spend your evenings by the campfire or, if you're lucky, spend them seeing baby sea turtles hatch and make their way to the sea for the first time.

What it's like

The moment you arrive via boat to Ranguana Caye, a sense of true relaxation will wash over you. Wildlife is ever-present here: from the island dog, Shadow, to the turtle hatchlings that grace the beach, to the vibrantly colored fish in the crystal-clear water. Each of the three island cabanas is designed to maximize your immersion in this truly spectacular place. What the accommodations lack in luxury, they make up for in charm and location. You’ll find the modern necessities that you need (like WiFi and hot showers), but the focus here is on soaking up the awe-inspiring scenery and the unmistakable laid-back local spirit. It’s always an exclusive atmosphere with Ranguana Caye’s maximum capacity of nine overnight guests and thirty day trippers. 

Independent spirit

No shoes, no shirt, no-worries at this relaxed private island.  

Small touches

Turtles find sanctuary on the Ranguana Caye shores. Not only could you spot a turtle while snorkeling off the shores, you could also spot turtles on shore laying eggs or even hatching! August through October is the best time to visit for a chance to see hatchings, but they happen year-round!

Eat and drink

Bully's Beach Bar serves three meals per day and all the alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages you could ask for. Enjoy tropical drinks, delicious beach barbecue and of course the famous shotski. The menu features familiar foods as well as traditional island favorites, with options for vegetarians, pescatarians, and meat-lovers. There’s truly something for everyone here. Don’t forget to bring a t-shirt to leave your mark on the bar forever. The all-inclusive package includes all meals as well as local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and boat transportation to and from Placencia.

And more

Nothing says honeymoon like tropical seclusion -- which is why Ranguana Caye is such a fantastic choice for newlyweds. You’ll experience glorious relaxation, and you can choose to enjoy the world-class snorkeling and perhaps watch sea turtles hatching for excitement. Philanthropy is a founding value: For every night a guest stays at Ranguana Caye Cabanas or another Muy’Ono Resort, a donation is made.  The beneficiary organizations are different for each resort and change every month, ensuring that Muy’Ono Resorts help as many organizations as possible throughout the year.
