Visual Adventure: Caye Caulker

Hammocks, sunsets and sea shells: Wanderer-in-Residence Gary Arndt learns what it means to “go slow” on this Caribbean island.

By Gary Arndt

In 2012, I took two weeks off to process some photos from recent travels, and to relax. I decided to spend that time in Caye Caulker, Belize, where the motto is “go slow.” It’s a sentiment that applies to everything on the island, from transportation (there are no cars here) to the attitude, and even the internet.

Here are some of the images I captured during my stay.

I took a nap one day and woke up just in time for sunset. This scene unfolded right outside my window. Bleary-eyed, I grabbed my camera and took this photo of a mangrove tree. Afterwards, I immediately went to back to bed.



Given its location just south of Mexico and close to the coast, Caye Caulker gets its fair share of visiting pleasure craft.
