If you are looking for resort-style or luxury, this is not for you. If you are looking for fun, laid back, relaxing, slow-paced, no stress - then this is where you need to go. A little bit of paradise on a quaint oasis in the middle of the sea. Everyone is so incredibly friendly and welcoming! I will absolutely be visiting there again!

Love the easy-going feel of the island...NO hustle and bustle here! Take your snorkel gear, and swim at the "split". Cheap water taxi from Belize City.

This place was paradise for us...no cars, slowpaced and laid back. It was difficult to come back. There are plenty of watersports but if you don't want to do anything that is fine too..

My partner and I spent 10 days on Caye Caulker and loved almost every minute of it. Caye Caulker is a small island about a 45 minute water taxi ride from Belize City. To start, the only automobiles are a few municipal and fire truck. Everyone else gets around by walking, biking, or golf cart. This results in an easy, laid back atmosphere. The streets are sand. Many restaurant floors are sand. Most of the restaurants are open to the streets with plastic sheeting that can be rolled down if it rains. Caye Caulker is relatively safe in that we could walk around and not be concerned for our safety. We were advised to lock our door and close the windows when we were not in the room and to keep valuables away from the windows. The major crime threat is drug use and we were propositioned but when we said "no, thank you," we were left alone.

The beauty of Caye Caulker, aside from the beautiful ocean and sky, are the people. Because it's a safe place, we wandered the streets, ate in various restaurants, and chatted with permanent residents.
