Whipray Caye is a very small private island located eight miles off the coast of Placencia, Belize, Central America.

Owned and operated by Julian Cabral and his American wife Beverly, Whipray Caye Lodge is custom made for serious salt-water fishermen and the independent traveler wanting to step away from everyday stress into a pure and natural world - where the fast pace comes to a splashing halt.

This is a very remote and unspoiled area - one of the few remaining in the Western Hemisphere. With warm smiles and ice cold Belikins at the ready, Julian and Bev make it very easy to unwind and adjust to the slow rhythms of island life.

A charming little island getaway, Whipray (Whippari on some charts) Caye is surrounded by some of the finest permit waters found anywhere as well as an abundance of snorkeling-worthy coral and sea life.

"10 Unplugged Vacations"

Kick back without your cell phone, laptop or BlackBerry

Indeed. Studies show that most Americans don't allow their vacations to get between them and their email. According to research, an estimated 83 percent of us check it at least twice a day while on vacation. And now that many of the most remote locales from Nepal to Mongolia to Tanzania offer some sort of connectivity, it's hard to escape your inbox.

However, some hotels find that the blurring between work and leisure is the antithesis of their mission to help you unplug. They're taking steps to help you tackle your bad habits by staying unwired by choice.

Nine miles off the coast of the Placencia, a fishing village in southern Belize that's becoming a popular vacation destination, the Whipray Caye Lodge attracts anglers who want to forget their lives back home—at least for a few days. Though this private island hideaway caters to a high-end clientele, the lodge is non-wired by design. "Guests come in at the end of the day, have dinner and talk about—fish," says Beverly Cabral who co-owns the lodge with her husband Julian, a noted angler. It doesn't take long for guests to get in the groove. "Everyone gets on 'caye time' very quickly: They're up just before dawn… fish all day, eat dinner and go to bed usually well before 9 p.m."
