Caye Caulker is a non-stop picture book: wherever you turn your head the image is stunning and peaceful. Very friendly and relaxed people, ready to help you or to hold a chat. Awesome snorkelling, scooba-diving. Really cheap seafood and drinks any place you go.

Very laid back place, great for going on snorkelling trips out to the reef. Not a place to go to if you want late night bars though! Everyone was friendly around the island. There is a real problem with rubbish, especially around supposed nature area which needs addressing.

Caye Caulker was just wonderful. It was so laid back and relaxed, everyone seemed happy and it was lovely to be able to walk around without cars on the roads. I will definitely be back!!

Caye Caulker is a lazy little island with tons of charm. The locals are very friendly and respectful for the most part. There was a fair bit of solicitation by businesses and street vendors but nothing too bad. The country of Belize accepts US dollars and has BZ currency, there is a set exchange rate of $1 USD = $2...

The island is small with no actual sandy beaches but what it lacked it made up with charm and clear waters. The docks were great for looking at fish and the street crafts were fun to peruse while wondering the sandy streets.

The island is quiet and very beautiful. Probably next time would visit Caye Caulker and another Caye. After about 3 days we were ready for a change of scenery. The island is small and if you do not snorkel or scuba dive the activities are limited.

It is a very nice island. It is small with people here friendly. We stayed here for 3 days. There are many options for restaurants, hotels and tourist shops. We stayed at Costa Maya Hotel and used Tsunami Adventures and both are great and highly recommended. As well, Rainbow and the Italian restaurant at the back of the island are... More

It was a family trip of 10 people. The charm of the town with sand streets (only bikes and golf-cart-type vehicles allowed) and friendly locals was wonderful. The water is crystal and the snorkeling perfect. There's no real beach per say but that didn't matter. The island is 1/2 mile wide and easy to get around. Great food and drink... More

Caye Caulker is surrounded by beautiful turquoise ocean and is close to an amazing marine reserve on the Belize Barrier reef. Take one of the snorkeling trips, you see an amazing variety of fish and sea life. It is not over-developed and can be a bit campy and laid back, and that is what makes it so appealing.

Come to English speaking Belize and discover a gem. Crystal blue waters with amazing snorkeling. This is not a place for luxury but if you dream of a place without cars and friendly face everywhere this is it, go slow!
