Calico Jack’s Village
Make our unique Caribbean beachfront village your home base in Belize.
Inspired by the color and character of the 17th-century pirate trades, the rich artistry of the Mayan culture, and new, low-impact building technology that minimizes disruption of our area’s natural beauty, Calico Jacks Resort is unlike any other vacation destination in Belize.
The caretakers at Calico Jack’s Village are devoted to your comfort, safety, and pleasure, from the food you eat to the adventures you wish to pursue. Even before you arrive, we will know your comfort and travel needs. Expect our help in mapping out adventures to nearby jungle and reef, and arranging your travel by car, boat, or plane.

Of Special Note:
Environmental preservation in the construction and ongoing operation of Calico Jack’s Village is a personal priority of owners and developers, Chester “Chet” Williams and Dr. Ydahlia Metzgen-Williams. In deciding to build an authentic Belizean village for travel-lovers, they made a commitment to ensure that the surrounding jungle and waterways would be left in their pristine condition. To that end, they have made every effort to employ and engage local Belizeans in the building project and to do everything possible to make the village self-sustaining without disturbing the jungle to the north and west of the village.
By employing local Belizeans at the village, Chet’s and Ydahlia’s intention is two-fold: First, they hope to send a message of environmental responsibility to the people who are the stewards of their beautiful native land; and second, they hope to make use of native talent in building, designing, and furnishing the village in authentic Belizean style. With the realization that building a village on the beach is a potentially environmentally threatening project, they installed generators from which all the electricity is drawn. In addition, they hired engineers to design and install a desalination system that recycles sea water to provide pure bathing water while giving back to the sea what is hers.
