Caye Caulker

Welcome to Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker is a gorgeous tropical island getaway that is located in the Caribbean Sea and is part of the small and humble Central American country of Belize. The island has a small population of only 2000 inhabitants but does swell with tourists in the high season which is between October and April. It is not a large island and occupies an area of only 5 miles (8.0 km) long by less than 1 mile (1.6 km) wide.

The island maintains an ultra-relaxed atmosphere and lives by the motto “go slow”, which is displayed all over the island and is comically enforced by the local rastas if you happen to ride your bicycle a little too fast down the main street. This relaxed way of life is even more apparent by the fact that only bicycles and golf carts are allowed on the island. Mellow reggae beats play all across the island and are the main choice of music throughout the country. You may have already guessed that with so many Rastafarians in Belize and Caye Caulker there must be a lot of ganja, right? The answer is, “everybody and their grandma” and you can bet that ole’ grandma will inevitably ask you to buy some of her sweet cheeba. Whether you feel strongly against cannabis, or you partake yourself, that really doesn’t matter because you’re in Belize and frankly it is a huge part of the country’s culture. When deciding if you will partake or not, keep in mind that marijuana is decriminalized throughout the country and what happens in Belize stays in Belize, think “When in Rome”.
