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!
