The island has a very relaxed atmosphere, You feel it from the moment you escape the golf carts. We met a local guy who helped us find the cheapest way to dive the blue hole, the hostel was great and everyone just seemed to be having a good time. Beautiful marine park around the island, one of my best memories... More

This place has everything you need without the hassle of a big tourist city. There is plenty to do and you can still relax and unwind.

Caye Caulker was one of the highlights of Belize. The island isn't posh. It isn't made for luxury, but it is a welcoming place. The reef is visible from the island, and there are great snorkeling trips that you can take on a near daily basis. For any snorkeling or day trips, I'd recommend Raggamuffin Tours. They also have a... More

We didn't have a lot of money, but we found Pause Accommodations - a Hostel of sorts that was not only economical but also rescued and cared for pets that had been abanconed or abused on the island. We liked the ability to walk around the island and felt safe and welcomed by the people of Caye Caulker. Lots of... More

Food was ok, more suitable for teenagers or students. Not much to see in the island. Not great for shopping. Didn't feel at ease.

We stayed on Ambergis Caye but took a boat over to the island for a day. So much fun, we went to the lizard bar at the split and enjoyed a great day of laying out, eating lobster and drinking the lizard juice.

People come to Caye Caulker for various reasons. Many are here for the great diving and snorkeling nearby. Some come for the excellent Caribbean food. Others, like me, are looking for chilled-out peace and quiet. I loved the slow pace of the island, getting around by bike or by walking. People were friendly and it was easy to do very... More

The coral reef alone is enough of a reason to visit, but the local food is excellent, though I wish we had come during conch season. Red Snapper, Barracuda, Lobster, and Stone crab are in abundance, but be sure to get some Fry-Jacks or Boil-up (local dishes) when you can. I felt like my money was going to the local... More

If you are in Belize City for business and want to chill on the weekend, take a water taxi to Caye Caulker ( about 45 mins) where you are expected to "GO SLOW". Cabanas just made for grabbing a lounge chair and a long cold drink. Good food, diving, snorkeling and much more.

Small enough Island to walk everywhere. Good food selection and cute shops. Lots of activities to choose from also. Great experience! No cars allowed on Island, golf carts and bikes only.
