Slow Life in Caye Caulker


Caye Caulker feels like one small amusent park for adults. There are no cars or motorbikes, only bikes and some drunk people driving golf carts around. A walk around the island takes less than an hour and when you go through the streets in the North you are guaranteed to be asked at least ten times if you want food, weed or an organised day tour.

Caye Caulker feels more like a Caribbean Island than an island just an hour boat ride from mainland Belize. It has got white sandy beaches and turquoise water and the majority of the people here are english speakers of creole origin, lots of them rastafarians it seems

Its a place to go to slow down life, and there is not much to do. There are swings, tubes and hammocks that you can chille with a beer in at sip’n dip, you can jump of the tower and snorkel around the split, watch the sunset from the many piers or feed some meterlong tarpet from a canoo next to Bellas hostel, where we stayed. Caye Caulker had been amazing, but two days here was plenty for my taste.
