Defining Personalized Travel to Belize since 1988

Picture an idyllic tropical island with white sand beaches, blue-green water, palm trees rustling overhead and a very laid back attitude - That's Caye Caulker ...

CAYE CAULKER

Caye Caulker is the second largest of the approximately 200 small islands located off the coast of Belize. Half a mile wide and less than five miles long, it is also the second most populous of the Belizean cayes with about 1,300 full-time residents.


Map of BelizeCaye Caulker Village is located at the southern end of the "split" a watery passage created in1961 by Hurricane Hattie. The split divides the north and south ends of the island. The swampy north end, now a Marine Reserve, is primarily a domain for mangroves, coconuts and nesting birds.


Within the village there are 3 main streets which parallel each other and are named Front, Middle and Back Street. From Front Street, the reef, about a mile offshore, is clearly visible and follows the shoreline where brightly colored clapboard houses, small shops, seaside pubs, restaurants and many of the villages accommodations can be found.


The "Split"Caye Caulker, once primarily a fishing community, still retains its laid back fishing village ambiance, while becoming well-known among the backpacking community for its party and night life and as an island destination for anyone looking for a beach-oriented vacation at modest prices. Golf carts, bikes and feet are the modes of transportation.


Caye Caulker is situated 21 miles northeast of Belize City and 11 miles south of Ambergris Caye; a short 10-minute flight or scenic 45 minute water-taxi-ride, from the mainland.


Things To Do from Caye Caulker


Big Rock FallsThe "split" is the place to go for sunning and swimming. Visitors can take ecology hikes (over 120 species of birds have been sighted on the island) and guided boat tours to mangrove lagoons. Caye Caulker also offers world-class scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing.  Sunset Cruises are popular. There is something magical about the Caribbean at sunset and under the light of the moon and stars. 



SCUBA Diving

From Caye Caulker, local dive sites are reached in a matter of minutes. Protected waters inside the reef make getting to sites easy and comfortable.


Dive TurneffeReputable licensed dive operators offer trips to a host of sites including Caye Caulker Marine Reserve, which offer some of the most natural diving in the region, featuring a beautiful, healthy reef with copious amounts of live corals and juvenile fishes. Excursions are also offered to the The Blue Hole, Lighthouse and Turneffe Atolls and other popular dive spots ... more



Snorkeling

SnorkelingMost of the area inside the reef is less than 20 feet deep and you can see almost as much with a mask and snorkel from the surface as you can diving. In just 6-10 feet of water you'll find an amazing diversity of marine life. Also the reef provides protection which makes for clear, calm waters, making it ideal for snorkeling ... more



Water Sports

SailingSailing - Day sailing trips are available on locally crafted boats that Caye Caulker is known for. Popular are the Half and Full-day sails with snorkel stops, including Hol Chan and a stopover at San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. Longer excurssions can be arranged to the outer atolls, including Turneffe, Glovers and Lighthouse Reef.


Sea KayakingSea Kayaking - Take an hour or two to circle the south main island. Stop at the Mini-Reserve. Take a few more hours and paddle to the north end of the Caye, exploring the mangroves and spotting resident and migratory birds. More than 100 species have been identified. Many species of fish, including the seahorse, live among the dense mangrove root system.


Fishing Fishing - Flats, reef and offshore fish are plentiful. Licensed boat operators offer half- or full day trips for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, snapper, barracuda, jacks and for some of the really big ones, like sailfish, kingfish, marlin, bonito and pompano. Fishing experiences can also be had by accompanying local working fishermen.


Wind SurfingWind Surfing - For most of the year, Caye Caulker has a robust east wind blowing, making it an ideal place for wind surfing. A large number of avid wind-surfers have arranged their lives to spend several weeks or months here each year. Others come as novices, learn to wind surf and join them.
