Shopping & Art
A lovingly restored beachfront family home and apartments on Caye Caulker, Belize Central America
Alamina Beach House was built originally in 1975 by Norman Alamina, a boat builder and lifelong resident of Caye Caulker. It is one of a few original clapboard island homes that remain on Caye Caulker's beachfront, having survived Hurricane Mitch and Hurricane Keith. Over the years he added on to the building and it now houses Los Cocos Cantina featuring artwork from Caribbean Colors - Lee Vanderwalker-Alamina, Lighthouse Ice Cream Parlor and Barrier Reef Sports Bar on the first floor, and three large apartments on the second floor. We are considered "downtown Caye Caulker." This property and its surrounding beachfront is part of the Alamina estate once owned by Norman's father and grandfather. It is now owned and being developed by the children and grandchildren. The site where the Alamina Beach House stands was originally where Norman's father, Valentine Alamina had his general store. It is a perfect accommodation for families with children or friends that want to stay together in a home like atmosphere. It is well furnished and very comfortable. The Alamina Beach House is licensed by the Belize Tourism Board as a hotel and tourist accommodation.

A note about the water on Caye Caulker: We rely on the rain gods for our water and are on a well, cistern and septic system. Caye Caulker is currently being hooked up to a municipal water system, but it has not been put into effect yet. So, we ask that you help to conserve water. For your health, we recommend that the water that comes from the tap not be consumed or used in cooking. Purified drinking water may be purchased from the Bowen & Bowen truck which passes every morning. We start you out with a full 5 gallon bottle.
