Great Island

The one and only problem i had with the island was the sexual harassment from the locals, otherwise the place is paradise.

Small hotels, still lots of local family owned businesses and beautiful water. Heaven away from the hardcore tourist spots. Still reasonable. Get a funky old bike and cruise the dirt roads...

This island is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Just relax and enjoy the beauty of the island and the reef.

Just an island but foget the white beaches you've dreamt. High prices everywhere and no beaches. People are nice but that's not enough to justify the cost. Snorkeling in the area is nice for the animals you can see...shark, sea horses, turtles, mantas but corals are not so nice.

If you are looking to relax and take it easy I couldn't recommend Caye Caulker more. There are plenty of things to do, especially if you enjoy diving and snorkelling. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and the people of the island are so friendly. Didn't want to leave.

We love this place... so relaxing, the people are great, great snorkeling, so fun! We really prefer this island to San Pedro, more down home, more affordable, more community

Caye Caulker is a very quiet location with tourism as their main economy. The water was beautiful and the people very friendly. Definitely plan to "Go Slow", as the islands motto says. Eat at the smaller local restaurants for excellent seafood at unbeatable prices. Don't plan on spending too much time at the beach as there are very few sandy... More

We visited the island for Lobster Fest 2016. The island is just what we wanted in an island getaway. The locals were all very friendly. We felt safe at all times. We didn't go out much after dark to experience any nightlife. We loved the small island laid back vibe. There are no paved streets or motorized vehicle on the... More

This tropical island offers a great variety of water activities; snorkeling is a must! There are plenty of colorful wooden hostels/hotels and bars that make your caribbean experience awesome! The water is unbelievably clear.
