Rum and reggae in Caye Caulker
What would be a better finish to a wonderful vacation in Central America than to hang out in the Caribbean? After a five hour ride in a mini shuttle bus from Flores in Guatemala to Belize City, we hopped on a short boat ride to the little Belize Island Caye Caulker. There we checked in to the most popular hostel on the island, Yuma´s House, a clean and friendly place just by the waterfront. The next three days we enjoyed the great Caribbean ambience on this island including an exciting snorkel trip. I have snorkeled in the Red Sea a couple of times. There you have plenty of small colorful fish. Here we saw bigger once. Nurse shark, Stingray and the beautiful Sea Turtle, check out my animal section for pictures 🙂
Caye Caulker has no cars, just small golf carts and bikes. There is to be honest no good beach on this island but everyone is hanging out at a spot called “The Split” where you can lie down in some sort of sand, have a rum and listen to the Soca and Reggae music. And the sea is turquois and very welcoming. The island is so wonderful and charming with its pastel colored houses, friendly and welcoming locals and tropic surroundings that the lack of a really great sand beach didn´t matter to us.
