Photo of the Week: The smallest airstrip we’ve landed on

Caye Caulker Airstrip, Belize

The smallest airstrip we’ve ever visited – Caye Caulker, Belize

Life moves a little slower on Caye Caulker, the second largest of the Belizean cayes. The chilled out Caribbean island is only 4 miles long with the village section stretching no more than a mile.

Most visitors arrive to Caye Caulker via ferry or small aircraft, landing on the tiny airstrip pictured above. We shot some aerial footage of the Belize Barrier Reef from the window of the small aircraft, see the video here.

The small wooden building acts as customs, immigration, ticket sales and the passenger waiting room. That purple buggy you see in the front of the building is actually the “baggage claim”.

You know you’ve arrived somewhere special when the airport shuttle bus is a 6-seater golf cart!
