We decided to give the island of Caye Caulker a try as we had a few extra days in Belize and we had just learned to dive. The island is extremely expensive compared to the rest of Central America. A tourist trap no doubt. We stayed at a moderate place away from the main strip with no ocean view and... More

The north and south islands of Caye Caulker are unique. With a total population of only 1,300, this little paradise is unique. It is a perfect place to relax, swim and dive in the clear and normally calm seas because 300 meters offshore there is the coral Belize Barrier Reef. The motto of Caye Caulker is "No shirt, No shoes,... More

We Traveled to Caye Caulker on April 20-23, 2015 and it was a really nice time. My boyfriend any my son enjoyed our time playing in the nice sea water at the split, sipping cocktails in front of Mara's, lazily walking the dirt roads, eating fried chicken and fish from Aunties, drinking coconut water from fresh coconuts from the coco...

Trip of a lifetime with Ken. Best fly fishing guide I've ever been with and I've been fly fishing for 40 years. Can't wait until next year as I will be taking the family. They can shop while I fish!!! Thank you Ken!

If you want to forget about the rest of the world come here, this is a very nice Island, no pavement no cars, friendly people. You can snorkel nearby in the beautiful reef. Don't expect big resorts.

The windward side of the island is fantastic with its constant breeze, warm water and friendly people. It's a small island with few restaurants but it is a great place to get away from it all and bask in the Caribbean sun. I will definitely go back.

Great for diving and snorkeling tours, busy parts with lots of bar and restaurant options and more quiet isolated alternatives , BUT - water is not ideal for swimming as it's windy on one side and not very appealing on the other, and people here can be friendly but also very homophobic and aggressive...

Just popped over Caye Caulker for the day so we could go on the Barrier Reef Excursion. It's a smallish island with a bit of shade and breeze but it was still very hot...about 95 degrees in the sun. On the south part of the island it seemed like a bit of a tourist trap so after our excursion and... More

Loved almost everything. Just wish it were closer to home, but just a 2.5 hour flight from Houston. Locals are nice and not pushy like Mexico. Food is incredible, drinks cheap, and tons of beautiful people and scenery to enjoy. Take sunscreen! Also, not one mosquito bite all week unlike my trips to Ambergris Caye. The only thing that bit...
