Caye Caulker in Belize is a paradise island with a motto of “Go Slow”. It turned out, on this boat trip, we’d be lucky to be moving at all!
I travelled to the Belizean island of Caye Caulker by water taxi from Belize City. Many people said this would be one of the highlights of my entire tour down Central America! It’s a paradise island, next-door to the island Madonna sang about in La Isla Bonita. Shack-like brightly coloured homes and weatherboard hotels line the 3 main streets, some on stilts waiting for storms to set in. Fishermen returned with their catches as we disembarked the boat. Life on Caye Caulker seemed relaxed and tranquil, and I could see why the island’s motto was ‘Go Slow’.
