Caye Caulker is Belize's most welcoming island for the independent traveler and a long-time favorite for visitors seeking tropical beauty in a relaxing setting. Originally a fishing village known for its bounty of spiny lobsters, the island has seen tourism gradually emerge as the primary industry. Although Caye Caulker now boasts a full range of restaurants, shops, and tourist activities, the temperament of the island remains friendly and easy-going.
Maybe Caye Caulker's outlook has something to do with the idyllic weather, cooled by a steady sea breeze. Or maybe it's the island's well-preserved serenity. To this day, there are no paved streets, no parking lots, and virtually no cars. You'll be able to walk barefoot just about any place you'd like to visit.
Our Tropical Island Escape allows you to maximize your time on Caye Caulker to fully enjoy this island paradise. Your tour begins at the Belize Tourism Village, the site at which all cruise ship tenders drop off their passengers. A few steps from your tender, you will meet our team and prepare to board one of our snorkel boats for the scenic ride to Caye Caulker.
