Caye Caulker is a small island right off the coast of Belize. Just a quick bumpy boat ride from the city. There are a few island options that can all be accessed from Belize via the water taxi. Caye Caulker was my favorite for a few reason. This list is short and sweet because let’s be real, the island is extremely charming, and when I say charming, I really mean tiny. I don’t mean to sound like an apartment ad that sells you on a few key words options however in Caye Caulker there is nothing wrong with charming.
Caye Caulker is made up of 3 streets. First Street, middle street, and third street. Everything you will need will be on the first and middle street. Take full advantage of the island size. Be mindful due to its size stores and business close early. it is not like America there is no 24hour 7-11, or postmate options.
Here are my top 3 for Caye Caulker living
Take a bike ride
bikes can be rented in the front of the island or from your hotel. If you chose to rent through AIRBNB, check to see if the host have bikes available during your stay. It will definitely cut on cost. This is also a great way to get around the island with ease. Or you can rent a go-cart for speedy transportation. There are no cars on the island.
2.Lobster lobster lobster
You’re on an island for goodness sake, enjoy as much seafood as humanly possible. So hit up Enjoy bar and rest. Grab swing at the bar order a drink and dine with the locals. Their lobster dinner is grilled to perfections and dripping in butter. ( mouth watering right about now)
3. Last but definitely not least . (always save the best for last) Actually one of my favorites things to do on the island and an absolute MUST. Snorkeling near the reef. The waters is clear, warm and absolutely amazing. Take a Tour with Blackhawk Tours. Best prices on the Island. Lunch is provided along with all the equipment, and a guide. Bring the following for a full day of fun in the Caribbean sun.
Sunscreen, Hat, coverup, swimsuit, waterproof phone case for photos, camera/ underwater camera, flip flops, and a tote bag.
