Caye Caulker, Belize
With a perfect combination of sandy streets, turquoise-lilac waters, delicious rum and friendly locals, Caye Caulker meets even the strictest definition of tropical paradise. And despite the snail’s pace of things around here, you’ll be surprised how quickly eight nights pass by.
It’s a tiny island packed with an unbelizeable amount of perfectly invigorating excitement or relaxation if that’s your desire. Whether it’s some of the most incredible and affordable reef diving, snorkeling like you’ve never experienced before, or just hanging on the beach drinking a bucket of Belikin — Caye Caulker is your one-stop island for pure Belizean paradise.
And yes, Belize ranks as one of the most expensive Central American countries, especially when island hopping — but by staying at the right places, meeting the right people and eating the right food, it is possible to stay in budget.
