Caye Caulker is one of the most beautiful little islands I’ve ever visited. The water is incredible, the atmosphere is friendly, and the drinks are strong!

It’s a perfect getaway.

If you’re a solo, female traveler I should warn you to look out for a local character named Captain Shane. He meets young women traveling to the island and attempts to form relationships with then to take advantage of them.

Don’t let it stop you from visiting the island and enjoying your time there. Just be cautious and stay far away from Shane.

Decided to go for a two day trip with the lads from work. We stayed at tropical paradise which was lovely and a great pool to chill around and drink beers with the boys Island was a good laugh and full sent it on the first night. The night out was spoilt for me when a local gentleman decided to urinate on my leg in the reggae reggae bar. While I was ordering a rum punch. Very unhappy I called it a night.

The next day I went for breakfast and me and my friends ordered 3 Cuban coffees and 3 big F***ing breakfast sandwiches. After 30 seconds and writing the order down the waitress asks if we ordered 3 Cuban sandwiches. Hungover and tired and still very annoyed after being urinated on I replied, no 3 f***ing big sandwiches and 3 coffees. 40 minutes later I got my big f***ing sandwich and a Cuban coffee in the smallest coffee cup I’ve seen.

We then went on the snorkelling tour which was amazing and definitely recommended to anyone going over to visit. Swam and fed sharks and sting rays along with seeing the amazing coral reef.

I will most definitely be returning for another day trip to see some other reefs and caves on offer but I will most definitely not be visiting the reggae reggae bar again or purchasing a big F***ing breakfast sandwich. Either way I’ve had a blast, going home like a fried lobster and a bad belly from laughing so it’s not all bad. It’s not every day you can go on a tropical island in the middle of no where 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

Magical. Simply one of my favorite destinations on the globe. A perfect destination for a lazy beachside day strolling sandy streets filled with bars, restaurants, souvenirs, music, friendly people, sun and the inescapable sound of the ocean.

My then-girlfriend-now-wife were in Caye Caulker 19 years ago with little expectations. We were really just using it as a brief stop-over as we ventured between Mexico and Guatemala but it turned out to be a highlight of our trip.

Last week we finally returned, along with our 10 year old. It is much busier now, but still laid back and slow. Everyone is polite, although there's maybe a slight bit more of a hustle to it (there are now people in the main street ushering you into a couple of restaurants).

The sargassum STUNK, but blame that on global warming. And it isn't exclusive to C.C., since San Pedro was just as bad and Mexico sounds worse.

Last time, we didn't go to San Pedro because it didn't sound like my vibe. This time we checked it out. I was right, it isn't :) For those that are trying to decide which to go to, I can't recommend Caye Caulker enough and I can't recommend San Pedro (Caye Ambergris) at all lol. For every reason one might visit San Pedro, I can think of a better place to go. Caye Caulker, on the other hand, has few rivals that offer the uniqueness it has. It is - by far - the better destination, in my opinion. What it lacks (high end shopping, night clubs and casinos) there are FAR better places to go for that than Belize!

There are many small retail shops, diving tours, eateries, gold cart rentals, and of course the Split. A real village feel.

We have been to San Pedro several times, but this was our first time on Caye Caulker and we liked it better. It was less crowded and less expensive! We stayed 3 days.

An incredible island with no/few cars and friendly people. Walkable /bikeable from everywhere. Stayed at an Airbnb most of the time, then a few days city center.

We just spend 4 days there and had a great time, it's english speaking, the locals are cool, no bums or husters or beggers, very safe, great bars and snorkel tours, really a fun place. BUT no beach, it's all sea walls and that is a deal killer for me.
