Blackbird Caye is a privately owned Island sitting on The Mesoamerican Reef System - often referred to as the "Jewel of the Caribbean" - it is the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere with a rich More tapestry of vivid corals, mangrove forests, coastal wetlands, and diverse marine wildlife.

Hi! We offer a grill/bar menu during the day and our gift shop has some snacks available for purchase. There is no room service per se but can accommodate special requests as much as possible.
