Caye Caulker was kind of sweet. Not a lot of night life or anything just lots of restaurants competing for your $. Had the dubious experience of spending the same on dinner for two as the cost of accomodations for the night. They actually had one decent beach at the North end of the Island with good sand and pretty... More

Visited Belize City on 18 Feb, 2015 on cruise. Walked out of cruise terminal (farthest building to the left facing away from the water) and out onto street. Take a left and walk about 20 feet and there is a kind of street/alley that leads to the water again, which is where the Belize Express water taxi is. There may... More

You will love Caye Caulker if you like being relaxed, being around very friendly people, having access to amazing water sports (especially snorkeling and scuba), love great views, don't like crowds of tourists and aggressive hawkers, and love a good value. We stopped in San Pedro for lunch during a tour, and we are very glad we didn't choose it... More

We started travelling to Caye Caulker in 2011 and have returned very year since. I am really surprised by some of the negative whiny comments from other travellers. Hey people get a life...its a developing country with different customs. If you didn't do your research before going then you deserve to be dissapointed. It's everything we hoped for... Laid back...do... More

What a wonderful relaxed place. Probably one of the last left and soon likely to disappear before the juggernaught of developer greed. Sun, sand, wonderful seafood, friendly people & cheap rum. This is a slow walking town; maybe bicycling or golf carting at most. You shouldn't "dress for dinner" because most of the great food is the kind you should... More

This small Caye is ideal to get away from everything. It's an anything goes relaxation place. Not many shops, a few laid back bars and restaurants. Come expecting to read some books and take in the sun. The North end of the Caye is the hangout for young backpackers, the middle is more mature and the accommodations are pretty casual... More

Love this place. So much personality but not as obnoxious as San Pedro. Everyone goes to Ambergris Caye, but not as many go to Caye Caulker. Fine with me but if you don't visit here, you're missing out. No vehicles, not insanely busy or touristy, more laid back and slow paced. Great restaurants, beautiful condos/cabanas, tons of things to do,... More

Caye Caulker is like anywhere we have ever experienced. The simplicity and beauty of the island is magical. We have just returned from our 3rd trip there and each time I have left with a tear in my eye. It lives up to it's Go Slow motto!
