Welcome to Caye Caulker


In place of hassles, Caulker offers balmy breezes, fresh seafood, azure waters and a fantastic barrier reef at its doorstep. The easygoing attitude is due in part to the strong Creole presence on the island, which pulses to a classic reggae beat and is home to a small community of Rastafarians. This has long been a budget traveler's mecca, but in recent years tourists of all ages and incomes have begun to appreciate the island's unique atmosphere.
