Welcome to Caye Caulker !
Caye Caulker is a small sand covered coral island off the coast of Belize in Central America.
Originally measuring 5 miles long and 1 mile wide, the island was dredged at a narrow point in the late 1950's creating what is known locally as the "split " and 2 separate Islands. The North Island is starting to get developed; however Caye Caulker Village and the majority of hotels, restaurants and dive shops are located on the South Island.
There are no paved streets or privately owned vehicles on Caye Caulker. Residents and tourists utilize beach crusier bicycles and golf carts. There are 3 main Streets running North to South. Front Street is located along the East Coast and is where most of the action takes place for tourists. Back Street is located on the West side of the island, and Middle Street is (yes you guessed it) right where it sounds. Colinda Cabanas is ideally located between the very South end of Middle Street and the East Coast beach trail.
Caye Caulker was traditionally a small fishing village. The lobster and conch fishery is still a large industry employing many locals; however these days tourism is the main economic driver.
Most tourists come to Caye Caulker for the excellent snorkeling and diving. Many people also come to Caye Caulker just to chill, unwind and relax. There are several grocery stores on Caye Caulker for those who like to self-cater, and a large variety of excellent reasonably priced restaurants.
If you are the type of person who is quite happy just to lay in a hammock and read a good book, then Caye Caulker will be an excellent fit for an extended stay of a week....or maybe a month ! However if you need to be constantly doing something, and laying in a hammock is just not your cup of tea, then four or five days on Caye Caulker should fit the bill nicely.....
Many people also use Caye Caulker as their base of operations while exploring the mainland of Belize on day trips; returning to the calm and serenity of Caye Caulker at night.
There is something to do for everyone both adults and children alike on Caye Caulker !
To the right of your screen you should see a list of various activities = Enjoy !
