If you've ever been on a tour of Belize with us it is certain you've met Mr. Cornel Staine. And you'd know he's the best tour guide in Belize, hands down. Whether you're on a tour of Belize City, tubing through the caves in the jungle, scaling the river through the mainland or climbing a Mayan temple - Cornel can answer any question you may have. St. George's Caye Resort is excited to have partnered with such an intelligent and passionate tour guide!

 

 

Cornel is a walking book of information regarding all things Belize. From cultural customs and history he paints an accurate picture of Belize then and now. When visiting the Mayan temples his knowledge of their use of the land will amaze you. Ask him about the plants on any adventure through Belize and he'll be able to tell you what it is and how it's used.

 

 

Like many Belizeans Cornel spent most of his time growing up around family. From his father's welding shop in Belize City to his Grandmothers farm in western Belize to cousins scattered, Cornel's upbringing took him all over beautiful Belize giving him a base of knowledge handed down from his elders. Some things are best when learned hands-on! Studying has also been an important component of success for Staine. Tour Guides in Belize are trained with intense curriculum and must demonstrate their skills in the field before final licenses are awarded. Cornel finished top of his class and has never stopped learning and teaching all about Belize.

When not touring Belize, Cornel spends his time with his wife, Sharola, and two sons D'Shawn and Khalil. He also enjoys playing pick-up basketball in his neighborhood. Occasionally you can find him hiding out under the ocean off the docks on St George's Caye. He is an avid free diver and SCUBA diver in his spare time!b2ap3_thumbnail_Cornel-Family.jpg

 

We are grateful to have partnership with Mr. Staine for 5 years now - and plan on many more years to come. We all benefit from his love and knowledge of Belize.

The 'San Pedro Slam' is one of our most popular adventures. Leaving St. George's Caye at 7:30am your day starts with warm breakfast tacos on board the crisp morning ride. I recommend bringing along a light jacket or cover. The 45-60 minute ride takes you past Caye Chapel and Caye Caulker before arriving to Ambergris Caye where the small village of San Pedro lies. The boat then docks at the Reef Adventures/Wet Willie's dock where you meet up with the professionals from Reef Adventures who outfit you for your amazing snorkel or dive. First visit is to the famous Hol Chan Marine Reserve, a 10 minute boat ride, where you should prepare to be amazed at the abundance of life below the sea. Like swimming inside an aquarium Hol Chan is must see attraction in Belize! As is your next stop for snorkeling or diving; Shark Ray Alley! And yes, it is full of sharks and rays. Home to mostly Nurse Sharks and Manta Rays this spectacular sight can be seen from inside the boat -for those unsure- or from under the water -for the more adventurous souls. You guide will feed them and show how to appropriately enjoy these amazing creatures. Not to be missed while in Belize.

After you have been astounded by the bounty and beauty of our Caribbean Sea life you will be taken back to the dock where you can change if you like, but no need to, and then we cut you lose to explore the island as you see fit. Lunch at a café along the beach, perhaps? A visit to the famous Elvi's Kitchen in the center of town? Whatever you choose be sure to bring some spending cash for the street vendors selling beautiful handmade jewelry and wood carvings. What else to do while in San Pedro? There are beach massages offered, many cafes to enjoy cold beer while watching the boats pass by. Real Estate offices, for the curious visitors, offer fliers posted outside of properties for sale. A band is usually playing somewhere, if not simply along the street near the vendors. You can even rent a golf cart for a couple of hours to roam around the Northern and/or Southern parts of Ambergris Caye.

By 3:30 or 4:00pm most guests find they are ready to go back to St. George's Caye. It's been a beautiful day filled with new experiences but the peace and tranquility of SGCR is calling your name. You arrive back to your private Cabana with plenty of time to clean up and relax before dinner.

Come and play with us!
