This small island is a great place for fisherman - bones, tarpon, permit are abundant. Local guides Ken and Parcell are knowledgeable fishermen and watermen. Great guys to spend the day fishing with. Carlos snorkel tours does small group tours to Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley, and the manatee. They have a treasure in guide Romeo! They also do tours... More

There are no cars. The island motto is "Go Slow." There are fewer tourists than on San Pedro. The food and lodging is less expensive than on San Pedro. It is a little more primitive, so be ready for more of a camping out experience.

A totally laid back, truly wonderful place. You don't get more authentic than Caye Caulker. I would go back in a heartbeat. Such a special island. (Stayed back in 2013! Still miss the place!)

This place is very laid back. I don't think there is a restaurant on the island that has air conditioning but even in hot May weather there is a comfortable breeze. The island is beautiful and the native people are without a doubt the nicest most helpful people you can imagine. It's a great place to stay for diving trips.

This island is so magical. My bestfriend and I went for 5 days and didnt wear shoes the whole time. The people are genuine and the atmosphere is perfect.

If you want to stay on Ambergris for a day to just say you've been to the "celebrity" island then find, but Caye Caulker is WAYYYY better. Much more island feel, and cleaner in my opinion. You can bike around the whole island in a few hours and it's much more of a vacation-style island. I'm not sure why anyone... More

When one arrives at Caye Caulker, you have three modes of transportation on the island. 1. Golf Cart. 2. Bicycle. 1. On Foot. (There are no paved roads) We loved the Island, The People and the Slower Pace of Life. We will definitely return.

People were raving about Caye Caulker so we went for NYE 2015, however, there's no real beach which is disappointing for an island and there really wasn't the buzz we thought there'd be. Not sure why people are raving about it. Placencia was far nicer in Southern Belize.

Beautiful, quaint island town. It reminded me of Playa del Carmen 25 yrs ago. Liked it so much that I am considering buying property on the island.
