Belize Top Destinations
Belize travel destination
This beautiful island lies just south of Ambergris Caye and about one mile west of Belize’s barrier reef. Caye Caulker is a laid back destination. If you catch a taxi, a golf cart is what you'll get. A handful of streets lead through the small village of seaside restaurants, lodges, pubs, shops and clapboard houses in many bright colors. The barrier reef can be seen from the main road.
Caye Caulker is reachable with a short 10-minute flight from Belize's international and municipal airport or with a water taxi in about 45 minutes. The island is rather small with 5 miles of extension and with a population of about 1300 people that is made up mostly of Mestizo, but also a mix of Garifuna and Creole. The island has remained friendly and easy-going, avoiding the commercialism of other Caribbean destinations.
Caye Caulker has all sorts of accommodations, typically budget to mid-range.
The atmosphere on Caye Caulker is relaxed and slow paced, perfect for soaking up the sunrays and to enjoy the warm weather and the picturesque scenery. Caye Caulker offers lots of activities such as the traditional snorkeling and scuba diving, Manatee Tours, sea kayaking, bird and crocodile watching, mainland trips and much more.
