Caye caulker is as relaxed as there is. If you need Joel Robuchon go to Vegas and save the 300 people on Caye caulker the trouble! Otherwise, swim at the the split and enjoy a bucket of beers.

I soent 8 nights here in February and tho its a Carribean Island, there is no beach. Most people hang out on the dock at the Split or on private docks at the resorts.

Don't be fooled. The island is low key and has a laid back vibe. But when I am in the Caribbean and in a country boasting the world's second largest barrier reef right off shore, I expect a beach or a place to do some decent snorkeling. There was no such thing on this island. When I asked for the... More

I love this island- small, low-key, easy to just chill. Yes, there are street vendors, and bars, and restaurants. but it doesn't have the feel of "pressure" like more touristy islands.

What a wonderful relaxing place. No cars! No Cruise Ships! Laid back. Quiet. Relaxing. Friendly people all around! I left Caye Caulker truly feeling like I had been on a long vacation away from it all. Thank you Caye Caulker!

We only had a day on this Island but we definitely made the most of it! My Mom and I went to a little spa called Healing Touch, the name says it all. Wonderful service and would repeat every day if I could! Sister, Father & Fiance went swimming with the sharks their experience was epic..

First Time to CC spent a day relaxing walking through the Island enjoyed a couple hours at the "split" although it is mostly a younger crowd there. Dont miss Terry who is a street vendor he will grill a lobster while you wait!

This is a quiet and friendly island with terrific restaurants. It's small and not developed like San Pedro which means it has retained its charm. Restaurant prices are reasonable and there are plenty of day excursions to book. We will be back!

The island is very laid back, nothing is done in a hurrying, and the people are friendly. Liked it much better than Ambergris Caye!
