Ok, now Belize City was very nasty and dangerous. BUT......take the water taxi to Caye Caulker. No cars on this island, only golf carts. Everyone walking, locals very friendly and helpful! Ocean and beaches were so beautiful! Not a lot of entertainment if that is what you need but if you want a beautiful place to go, relax, enjoy the... More

The beauty of Caye Caulker is it's like life before the chains and the mass marketing. Most tours / restaurants / shops are run by the owner operator; someone local who knows the place and the place reflects their personality. No glitz, no glamour, simple, home grown, personable, real. We've been many places and we like nowhere better. It's a... More

We've been to Caye Caulker seven times and each time, we meet more and more people who are genuinely nice and very knowledgeable. We are small time fishermen and enjoy spending time fishing from the local piers. Every time we ask if we can use the piers, business owners are more than eager to say "yes". However, on this trip,... More

Absolutely loved, loved, loved Caye Caulker. We had an amazing 12 days. We snorkeled, kayaked around the island, and hand fed the tarpon. Look for the sign as you go toward the Split. It is the Tarpon Deli and it is located on the backside of the island. We ate breakfast and lunch at the deli and it was great.... More

Small, friendly & neither commercial, or pushy. Everything needed in a short stay. Plenty of quality eating options & bars. Always felt safe on the island.

Caye Caulker is a great place to stay as your home base to take side-trips to explore the areas around Belize. The island offers every kind of side trip you need such as cave tubing, tree-line zipping, exploring ruins, and of course the great reef, just one mile off the coastline of Caye Caulker. You can see the foam from... More

We just went back after getting married on Caye Caulker 5 years ago. We love the laid back vibe, beatiful Carribean colors proximity to the reef and reggae music everywhere! We rented a canoe and ejoyed a sunset paddle around the island, it was a great way to take in Caye Caulker this time!

This is a great place to relax if you can do without that white sandy beach. No cars makes the island slow and peaceful, there is plently of snorkelling and diving to be had with a fair chance of seeing turtles, nurse sharks and even manatee on the all day snorkelling trips. Plently of restaurants a few bars and shops... More

What a great Caribbean town! Their slogan is 'go slow' and the lack of motor fehicles just makes everything more calm. Pricier than other Central American places but still lovely. Lots of shops, lots of dive school, fun bars...just awesome.
