A quintessential Caribbean island

The tiny island of Caye Caulker lies just off the mainland of Belize and has long been a haven for scuba divers who come to explore the underwater world of loggerhead turtles, nurse sharks, magnificent rays and tropical schools of fish. Much of its length is still made up of mangroves, but the parts which are inhabited are typically Caribbean. Think colorful wooden houses on stilts and shacks on the beach cooking up fresh lobster on drum barbecues. When you check into one of the Caye Caulker vacation rentals, you'll quickly become charmed by this gorgeous island.

It's all about the dive

While there are plenty of outdoor activities on Caye Caulker from cycling to kite surfing, what draws most visitors in is the staggeringly good snorkeling and scuba diving. There are dozens of operators plying their trade along the main street near Caye Caulker vacation rentals. If you book to go snorkeling to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Alley, expect to see turtles, harmless nurse sharks, eagle rays and if you're really lucky, manatees. For scuba divers, there is simply nothing better than the Great Blue Hole, a sunken volcano with teems with large marine species.

Barefoot exploration in Caye Caulker

Leave your shoes back at your Caye Caulker vacation rental and walk barefoot along the sandy streets during your getaway. Towards the top narrowest end of the island, you'll find the Split, a channel said to have been created in a hurricane some decades ago. Here, you can grab a rum punch at the Lazy Lizard and look out over the turquoise ocean. The Red Flower Gallery houses a beautiful collection of paintings by the artist owner Paulette Salo, as well as handmade jewelry. In the early evening, be sure to look out for vendors selling scrumptious cakes along the main street.

Visit when the skies are clear

Though the island is open all year round to visitors, the best time to stay in a Caye Caulker vacation rental is between November and April. During this dry season, the temperature is always hot and the skies clear and bright. It's worth remembering that this is the high season, so book up early to avoid disappointment. With almost no rain during the season and perfect underwater visibility, it's no wonder that it attracts so many visitors. Foodies should bear in mind lobster season is between June and February, and outside of this time it's illegal to catch or sell these tasty crustaceans.

The gentle giants of the sea

The underwater world of marine life around Caye Caulker is simply astounding, even for snorkelers in the shallows. It's not uncommon to spot dolphins which playfully jump in and out of the wake of your boat. When you dive into the sea, you'll likely spot huge rays, schools of grouper and snapper, and the magnificent loggerhead turtles which enjoy the conch scraps in Hol Chan. Don't be scared to jump in with the nurse sharks at Shark Alley and if you are really lucky, you may even experience the sight of a gentle manatee.
