I almost feel the Go Slow thing protects the majority of The Locals to be lazy and clueless in the restaurants and bars, and it gets under your skin when you are throwing money at them, but yet you can't walk five feet down the street without getting hustled for that, or this. With spending a few months on San Pedro and over a month on Caye Caulker, I will say the service is a million times better on SP. The Service Industry People there are actually happy, smile, and are great with Guest, but on CC, you feel guilty or like you are annoying people making an order. The Hotels are about the same price, but you always get a pool, security, AC, and Cable on SP, and then part killed me, but drinks are a dollar more on CC too. I will say the walk-ability of the island is nice, and you can save money on what can be expensive Golf Carts if you are stuck way up north or down south, but there are not to many options. In my option there is only two real bars on the Island, and if you are expecting to meet Expats, you won't; it's mainly Back Packers (College Kids) and locals. The entire Island is a little bit dirty too.

Beautiful island to visit. Be sure to walk way down beyond the pier for food options. The lobster is caught locally and prepared right by you. But warning, it attracts the flies! The water is so clear and warm. It would be easy to spend the night on the island after arriving in Belize. Be careful because sometimes the water taxis depart early.

Amazing stay here. It was the first stop to our 7 week trip through Central America and it was the perfect way to start. The people here were very happy, fun and kind and everyone made an effort to make our experience great! The snorkelling and our fishing trip were the two main highlights!

Next time I go to Belize, and there will be a next time, I plan to stay right here, in Caye Caulker, the WHOLE TIME. San Pedro is only a 40 minute water taxi ride away if you want to do some activities like parasailing, jet skiing, etc....But if you are looking for a quiet caribbean vibe and a ton of peace and relaxation with wonderful people and great food on a much smaller, less populated island. This is the place. Dont expect 5 star anything....You might be on a beautiful caribbean island but you are still in Central America. The poverty and depressed state of things can be off putting.

Super relaxing. We booked a swimming with the sharks, snorkeling in the barrier reef. It was truly amazing.
