Which part of Ambergris Caye is best?

I have been searching for places to stay in Ambergris Caye and have found cute places in San Pedro Village area but I've noticed much nicer places in North ACaye. Does that area also have ngihtlife so I won't feel I'm missing anything if I'm not directly in San Pedro?

I'm also a solo traveler so I'm not sure what place is best.

Thank you for any suggestions.

If you are on your own and want to be able to walk to restaurants, bars and shops, stay south of the bridge close to San Pedro town; plenty of good, comfortable and safe options for you. Avoid unlight uninhabited areas at night and take taxis if your hotel is miles from town, but its relatively safe to be on your own, use common sense

Also, look south of town. Cab rides are very reasonable, as long as you don't get too far from town, maybe two miles or so.

You can always take water taxis to get back and forth from up north, but, I'd much rather be closer to town. Just personal preference though.

Thank you for the responses. The place I was looking at in the Northern part was Captain Morgans. It looks nice and has a casino on the property, but from the responses, I'm thinking that it may be the only nightlife or activity in that area. :(

Closer to San Pedro does sound better, thank you.

We have been going to Ambergris every year for the last 10 years now. We stayed on the north end of the island once about 3 years ago ......it is quite and relaxing but we were bored. We much prefer the south side of the island to stay closer to town. Lots more to do and a nitelife.

If you're solo, and want to be near the action, check out Ruby's Hotel. It's well priced and right there.
