Casa Rana

Dive into the adventure of Belize…

There are so many wonderful and exciting adventures to enjoy during your stay at Casa Rana. The difficulty will be which ones ‘not to do’.

We have affiliated ourselves with whom we believe are the most knowledgeable, safest, and the best providers of services for you to have fun-filled and action packed days. You can either contact the following companies, or we can do it for you.

For your snorkeling or diving needs we recommend contacting Elbert Greer at Elbert owns this company and has lived on the island for the past 24 years. He is a PADI IDC staff instructor with more than 4,000 dives. If you want, he can get you PDAI certified, arrange trips to the famous Blue Hole, or dive the hundreds of places inside or outside the reef. One particularly special trip is the night snorkeling trip at Hol Chan Marine Reserve. There you will see more different sea creatures than you can count.

For the most amazing day trips, including visiting the Mayan ruins, zip lining, cave tubing, beach BBQs, and more, we recommend Suya Tours. For the past 20 years they have been guiding people on these fabulous trips. The owners are wonderful people, they are safety conscious, and their equipment is some of the best on the island. You will definitely enjoy your time with them.

Ambergris Caye is known as one of the best places in the world for fly fishing for tarpon, bonefish and permit. Additionally, there is terrific fishing for all types of fish both outside and inside the reef. If this is of interest to you, please let us know in advance and we will make arrangements for you. Our connections with local guides are unique.

Belize has more than 500 different species of birds. It is one of the world’s top destination spots to see beautiful scarlet macaws, the giant jabiru, harpy eagles, egrets, herons and other exotic species. If you are interested in an early morning trip please contact Elbert at:

If you would like to have a massage on the porch or the dock at Casa Rana that can easily be arranged. Black Orchid Spa will cater to all your spa requests. They will even pick you up, take you to their full service spa in San Pedro, and then bring you back when you are done.
Their highly trained and licensed professionals will pamper you to your heart’s delight. Visit their site at:

If you fantasize a wedding by the Caribbean Sea there is no better place to do it than at Casa Rana. The home is large enough to easily accommodate 50+ people for a reception. There are some excellent wedding planners on the island who can help you make your dream wedding become a reality. On 10-10-2010 Diana and I were married on our front porch, and it was great!

What is true for wedding planning is also true for corporate retreats. Just let us know what you have in mind and we will make sure that it is arranged.

After a long day of traveling the last thing you need to do is spend time shopping in 5 or 6 small stores to get the food and drink items you want for your vacation. By ordering in advance you can get off the plane, or water taxi, and have everything put away and waiting for you. Carole buys only the best and freshest items. She gets a wholesale discount so the prices to you are approximately the same, or less, than if you had shopped yourself. Please contact her at You will be glad you did.
