Explore Caye Caulker, where the island’s motto is “Go-Slow”

Caye Caulker Belize

Measuring just five miles north and south and less than a mile across, Caye Caulker is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Belize. Less commercial and urbanized than its larger sister island of Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker offers a spectacular tropical island experience at very affordable prices. A few restaurants on the island provide fresh food and cocktails. Originally the destination of choice for artists, musicians and backpackers, today Caye Caulker still exudes a very funky, laid-back approach to life epitomized by its unofficial slogan of “Go Slow.”

Why You Have to Visit Caye Caulker on Your Belize Vacation

With just 30 small locally-owned hotels and inns, Caye Caulker exudes a very laid-back and friendly atmosphere. The beaches on the island are considered some of the most beautiful in the country and the Belize Barrier Reef, a popular spot for diving and snorkeling, is just a few miles away.

Where in Belize is Caye Caulker Located

Officially under the jurisdiction of the Belize District, Caye Caulker is a limestone coral island in the middle of the Belize Barrier Reef about 20 miles north-northeast of Belize City.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Caye Caulker

The weather is nearly perfect all year-round so just about any time of year is a great time to visit Caye Caulker although accommodations are somewhat more affordable during the official “low” season that runs between May and October.

Best Way to Get to Caye Caulker Belize

Situated about 17 nautical miles northeast of Belize City, visitors to the island can either take a water taxi (taking about 45-50 minutes) or fly to the island’s airstrip (a 15-minute journey) via Belize’s two domestic air carriers: Maya Island Air and Tropic Air. Once on the island, transportation is restricted to bicycles and golf carts.

Best Way to Experience Caye Caulker Belize

Once you’re on the island, turn off your phones and lose your watch as Caye Caulker is a special place where life is meant to be savored at its own pace. The island is the perfect place to get lost in your thoughts as you stroll along the white beaches or enjoy a leisurely snorkel expedition at the nearby reefs. The island is home to some of the best reggae musicians in the country so sit back and relax at one of the local cafes and bars as you enjoy the Rastafarian vibe.
