Oct 26, 2017 - Caye Caulker, it’s a corker

To get to Caye Caulker, we had to get a bus for 4 hours to Chetumal in Mexico, then get a water taxi for 2 hours. We arrived at about 6pm, so had some tea and went to bed. Next day we switched hotels to Popeyes. We had a chilled day sunbathing and swimming at the spit, which is where the north island of Caye Caulker meets the south island. It was originally a whole island before a hurricane separated it. We watched the sunset at Sip and Dip, a bar on a jetty with hammocks and tubes in the sea, before having tea at Steve’s BBQ, grilled...

Apr 9, 2015 - on the island

We have another full day here on the island so it was a very laid back type of day, out for breakfast, walk about the inland, some more pictures, mailed a couple post cards, did a bit of washing, work on travel blog, and a hour long massage on the beach great, a few beers, ice cream, great lunch of grill snapper with a sauce and rice, back to the split for a beery sunset, a group at 7 then out for a dinner of grill shrimp a very nice relaxing day, the only thing wrong with this place was the lobster season was closed so no lobster for dinner...

My morning starts off with a walk to the splits to get a few shots of the sun rise the cool breeze coming in off the sea is great, the birds busy, not a lot of people up most of the tourist sleeping in after a night of drinking and partying. A stop at Amor Y café for some coffee and a waffle with fresh fruit and a side of Bacon. yum, an then continuing my walk about the island, my group meets at 10:00am for a sail boat ride to Hol Chan marine Reserve for a great playing in the water, a time to swim with the small sharks and to feed some...

Apr 7, 2015 - travelling to Belize

Up early this morning a little work on travel blog and some breakfast before we get our private bus to Belize, a 18 passage bus real nice, was to take a local bus but our tour leader was able to get the private one for the same cost, great. The next stop was at the border crossing was a quick trip there handing over 25.00 USD for our exit fee, a exit stamp, back on the bus for a short ride to the border for Belize, there a quick check and stamp in passport, a walk though customs and now on two vans for our 2 hour trip to Belize City, we...

Feb 20, 2015 - Caye Caulker

Just a quick entry before the journal techies take the site down for updates. Another stormy day and disappointingly no snorkelling. Rather a boring one as we had to re-group for an update on the weather at midday. Spent some of it in the group browsing the few shops and bought my water taxi ticket for tomorrow, then returned to sort out me and my bag. With hair washed - delayed daily as we were supposed to be snorkelling - I went back to the one main street to buy some extra bits and pieces to bring home; mainly to use up the Bel $, and...

Feb 18, 2015 - 18-19 February Caye Caulker

We travelled back over the border into Belize and got to the water taxi at 2pm with an hour to wait till the next one. Ifilled some of this with two veggie samosas at the Indian restaurant I had spotted on my arrival in Belize - excellent and I really could do without dinner tonight. It was an hour's journey out of Belize with Cayes on each side of us. Caye Caulker is small - three roads only and very laid back. Our hotel is at the end of the beach all rooms with balconies and views of the sea - a sparkling turquoise when we arrived and...

Jan 7, 2014 - Caye Caulker - not the best of days

Well, not the best of days. Got up at 7:00 and did all the morning stuff then met up. The day did not look good – it was warm (low 70s) but overcast and very windy. Yesterday was clear and sunny and it was a travel day. Oh well. Then to Martin’s restaurant for breakfast – a second story place with a plastic cup snowman and a couple people who look old and worn. I ordered tea, eggs (over easy), and pancakes. They brought scrambled eggs, green tea (tepid) a couple overcooked pancakes and a glass of pale orange drink. It was OK but I’ve had...

Jan 6, 2014 - To the Islands!

It was a long ride to San Pedro – about two and a half hours - where we got off the boat and went through Belize immigration and customs. At the customs desk I found my camera bag was missing – but it was quickly found. I was asked by the agent if I had anything to declare – “A half bottle of rum and three cigars” I replied. She smiled and said she hoped I had a good time – I said I’d have a better time with a full bottle. Good to make officials laugh. Then about half the group that was continuing to Caye Caulker got lined up, had our...

Dec 26, 2012 - Sun, sea and seafood

What a place to rest your head and recharge your body. There are no cars on the island, although you can walk from one end to the other quite easily. There are golf buggys though instead. It was all peace and tranquility. I especially loved that you could go to a resturant, pick out your food and then they would cook it for you.

Aug 22, 2012 - Island paradise! 

Caye caulker was without doubt one of my favourite parts of the entire holiday! We stayed in a really nice wooden house of a hostel that consisted of one big dorm on a few different levels throughout the place! The island itself was pretty tiny with only a few streets and a split in the middle were the beach and lazy lizard bar was at the north end were we spent the remainder of the first day! The next day we spent chilling on the beach, swimming and exploring the rest of the town as well as having a but if Craic in the hostel with the rest...

Feb 19, 2012 - Caye Caulker

Today we travelled by small boat to another island called Caye Caulker. About 30 minutes ride from Ambergris. For most of our time in Belize it has been gloomy and rainy but since leaving the mainland and coming out to the Caribbean islands it has been sunny everyday and overbearingly hot. My back is sore from a sunburn. We are not staying at a hotel. I managed to rent a furnished apartment for a week. Very nice and cheaper than a hotel. We can cook our own meals and don’t need to go to restaurants. This is a good thing as I have spent too...

Jan 4, 2012 - Just another day in paradise

Well a wonderful sleep with tropical winds blowing throughout the night, what more could one ask for? Okay... I asked for sunny weather and tropical breeze and a few drinks, but those things all come at a price... Had a great breakfast, went to the ATM, which hasn't been working here on the island most of the weekend due to the holiday and all. After checking the signage, reading the instructions several times and putting my card in 4 different ways the machine was ready to give me some cash! So I was ready for the sun and tropical breezes,...
