Very laid back island life here. Youll have to down shift your life a few gears. Beach roads every where, get a bike and cruise around. San pedro will seem like a busy city compared to this place! A lot of mom and pop restaurants and a lot of grilling going on!

Had an excellent time. Very relaxing. Incredibly laid back, get around via walking or bike. Had some nice snorkel trips and finished with an all day snorkel/spear fishing excursion. Excellent trip!

No doubt the island is beautiful and the views were excellent. I just got tired of being hassled by people wanting us to spend money on touristy stuff, snorkeling adventures, restaurants etc. Most of them were respectful, but some of them really hassled you. Increasingly, a number of people on the island clearly don't have your best interest in mind... More

I have always love Caye Caulker ever since my first visit decades ago and each visit gets better. This Caye has so much to offer and there is so many things to its impossible to do in one day! A few for example are snorkeling, wind surfing, kite surfing, fishing and because of its location visitors can explore Belize's Barrier... More

We had some very delicious food at Rose's, including huge crab legs and a steak that was prepared in a teriyaki sauce. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was very laid-back.

If you visit Belize City on a cruise, please go out to one of the barrier islands like Caye Caulker. They are completely different than the city. Caye Caulker looks like a post card. The streets are just sand. The whole attitude on the island is an easy going, time doesn't matter, family atmosphere. You can get some caribbean food... More

I enjoyed my stay and didn't want to leave. I prefer Caye Caulker over San Pedro because it's a lot more calmer and laid back. I enjoyed everything from snorkeling, swimming, drinking lol, and playing basketball with the locals. I also fed the tarpons in the back of the island as recommend from Caveman Snorkeling tours. I had tons of... More

The caye is very small, no cars, no luxuries, but a paradise. Don't go if you expect great hotels/services. Ideal for escaping from the crazyness of the cities.

This is a lovely Island with a good number of nice restaurants and bars. There are lots of tours that you can go on which include but are not limited to Manatee watching and Swimming with sharks. The people are friendly and it is easy to access everything on the island because of it's size. Would love to go back... More
