Caye Caulker

We’d imagine this is what heaven looks like. Saunter along this 5-mile strip of white coral sand, vibrant blue waters, lush palm trees and thatched huts. Let yourself be taken in by the relaxed vibes of the beach and the rich Creole culture. There are tons of dining options, but there will not be a car in sight. Close your eyes and take in the soft breeze and calm waves. When you’re ready for an adrenaline boost, go for an underwater adventure. Schools of colorful fish are abundant and you may even see a manatee, nurse shark or stingray.
