This is a place to relax, snorkel, dive, eat sea food and meet travelers.. The Split is a great place to have one of the local beers (my favorite is a Pelican stout, blue bottle) and catch a tan while every once in a while go for a quick swim in the clear water.

The people were helpful but laid back. We could swim, snorkel (on a guided boat trip) and just wander around. We did see turtles, rays and sharks as well as fish when we were snorkelling. The fish colours are nothing like those of the Great Barrier Reef or other parts of the Pacific but snorkelling was still fun.

Caye Caulker is a very small little island with a very laid back attitude. If you really loved San Pedro then its probably not the place for you. The island motto of "Go Slow" is bang on the money. From the minute I arrived, I knew I was in love with the place. The streets aren't paved so you can... More

Loved our experience with Anda De Wata Tours! It’s a locally owned tour company ran by a lovely couple and felt more like hanging out with friends enjoying new sites than a generic boring tour. We were guided through the most beautiful spots along the reef on the full day tour and had the awesome experiences of swimming with sharks,... More

I visited Belize in the 1972 when San Pedro had sleeping cabins right on the beach and food mainly consisted of seafood and red beans and rice...Yum! Today Caye Caulker is way more inhabited and built up than San Pedro all those years ago, though, in a very sweet and nice way, quiet, mainly foot and bicycle traffic, some golf... More

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. Get out and dive, snorkel or kayak while there because I found there isnt else much to do. The restaurants have mostly western pricing as well... More

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.
