Go Slow on Caye Caulker, Belize’s Caribbean Hideaway

Go Slow on Caye Caulker, Belize’s Caribbean Hideaway

Located a short flight or ferry from the capital Belize City, Caye Caulker is one of the most popular islands in Belize. Although it’s the second largest of the Belizean cayes, it’s still only 4 miles long with the village section only stretching about a mile long.

Visitors quickly learn that life moves a little slower on this chilled out Caribbean island!

Below are 20 pictures from our trip to Caye Caulker
