Things to Do on Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker’s small-town vibe is just what you need for a truly unique, relaxing holiday that you can’t find anywhere else. It should 100% be one of your stops whilst travelling in Belize. Here are my recommendations for 10 great things to do on Caye Caulker.

7. Make New Friends at a Bar

At any bar in Caye Caulker, you’ll find a mix of locals, ex-pats, other tourists. All are friendly and happy to chat with both solo travellers and groups. Since it’s such a small island, it’s easy to follow the crowd from the Split, to the pier side bars, to the late-night dancing, and the late-late afterparties.

8. Go Sea Kayaking

Sea kayaks can be rented in town, or often from your hotel or Airbnb. The offshore reefs ensure calm waters that make kayaking easy. Head up north to check out the mangrove forests along the northern half of the island. Kayak out to sea and look back to see the view of the island from the ocean. Make sure to take your snorkel along in case you want to hop off and explore what’s going on right underneath you.

9. Eat Fry Jacks for Breakfast

10. Drink a Belikin Watching the Sunset

Belikin is the most popular beer in Belize. A light pilsner, Belikins are the perfect beer on a hot day on the island. They hold slightly less than the average bottled beer (9.6 oz thanks to extra-thick glass), but you can’t beat the prices. The best way to drink that Belikin is while watching the sun go down from the island’s western shore.

Caye Caulker Hotels

As is to be expected, Caye Caulker has plenty of hotels, hostels and guesthouses to choose from.

The mid-range Barefoot Beach is ideal if you want to be right on the seafront, it even has it’s own jetty set out over the water with hammocks to chill in. Yuma’s House seems to be a good budget option and a nice luxury option is We’Yu Boutique Hotel.
There’s also a whole range of other accommodation options for all budgets, including some great Airbnbs. Some places can’t be found online but they’re easily spotted as you walk around the island.

Whether you’re looking for nothing more than a chilled beach holiday or something more active you’ll sure to have a fantastic time on Caye Caulker.

    This sounds like a fabulous place to visit! You had me with #1. I think Kevin and I would really love it. I like the fact there are no cars on the island. Very cool.

      It definitely is, we especially loved the lack of cars. I just really hope it doesn’t become overrun with golf carts like San Pedro on Abergris Caye has. Fingers crossed!
