This island is great. It is small, lobster is cheap, and there is the reef a short distance away. My trip was too short to include a tour but everyone i met at Bella's Hostel where i stayed talked about Jacob and Short's Reef Tour. The split is tons of fun- I never made is too far down the road... More

Caye Caulker was beautiful place to visit for a day excursion. The island was so tropical with warm waters. We enjoyed just relaxing on the beach. The only downfall was that our group missed the last boat heading to the mainland. We had to endure a choppy ride back in the dark. Thank God we made it back safely.

Shocking blue sea and marine life surround a small coconut tree inhabited island made from coral in the middle of the world’s second biggest barrier reef. It’s basically Jamaica with English speaking Snoop dogs, who I think has a legit twin living on the island. It is the Carribean without pretentious hotels and snobbish holidaymakers. Put a bunch of hippies,... More

The peace and quiet. I travelled with a group who were not inclined to visit the reef or take any tours, they were happy to just chill. The island itself is quiet and friendly but the beaches are really poor. Not much sand and overgrown with sea grass. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy my rest and relaxation.

Dirt street, no cars, golf carts, bikes and pedestrians only. Pleasant and quiet place to stroll around, one mile from the barrier reef.. Good food, snorkeling and fishing trips, gift shops, watering holes.

What a beautiful island!! Its exactly as I would picture paradise. You have to try out Frans Dining, she has a 'stall' on the beachfront just outside Paradise Too hotel - excellent jerk chicken, great value for money. We also went snorkeling with Caye Caulker Reef Friendly Tours... Its an absolute must if you want to do it properly and... More

great experience! :) highly reccomend sunrise/sunset watches, snorkeling is a must, eating fruits from local vendors, renting bikes and going up and down the island, ending your night at "The Split", simply talking to the friendly locals and fellow backpackers.

I don't know that any review can give this tiny, island paradise any justice. All I can say is, if you want a party scene this is not the place for you. However, if you want to unplug, unwind and get centered, this is definitely the place. Everything about the island is conducive to relaxing and recharging. The locals are... More

I enjoyed my time in Caye Caulker. The island is small: no paved streets, you walk everywhere (only used the taxi/golf cart going to air strip once). You are not going to find luxury in this island, so if that's what you want, don't go there, as you won't find and you will get into conflict with what the island... More
