Only when you flip through Cayo Espanto's celebrity-studded guest book do you realize that you've probably been sharing this six-villa resort with some bold-faced names. So complete is the sense of seclusion you get here (Cayo Espanto is a private island near Ambergris Caye), even your butler can operate unseen if you'd prefer. He'll coordinate activities (snorkeling, diving, fishing, in-room massage) with the staff—and meals with the chef. Though you likely need no instruction on how to pass the time in a giant, open, breezy villa with Caribbean views from nearly every Yves Delorme–outfitted bed; nor on how to wade or swim in the knee-deep, chalcedony bathwater that surrounds the island.
