17 Jun Belize – Ambergris Caye to Caye Caulker
Our trip continued with a snorkeling trip Monday morning to Mexico rocks with Searious tours – I liked these guys much better than the ones we went with to Hol Chan, we took our time and got to see tons of fish, including stingrays, a moray eel, a scorpion fish, and lots of colorful fish, small and large. We walked around town a bit more, exploring the various shops, etc…
We spend most of the afternoon swimming in the pool at our condo. Overall we had a great time in San Pedro, but I was curious about our next stop, Caye Caulker. I had heard that it was more laid back than San Pedro. We got up Tuesday morning and enjoyed a last breakfast at our condo – the food at Rico’s, the restaurant at Banyan Bay was good for the most part, but not great, we enj0yed some of our meals in town more.
We caught the express taxi for Caye Caulker at 11:30 am and it was very crowded, so they had to add a second boat. Most people were heading to Belize City. It is a 30 minute trip to Caye Caulker, and we were happy to see a taxi waiting for us at the dock. It was a bit of a drive to our hotel, Caye Reef, which is close to the split, which is a good location, since that seems to be one of the best places to hang out and swim — we even saw some fish there. We are in another condo, which is large, and has a better internet connection than our last place, which is why I’m able to post pictures.
There’s a couple of vendors selling BBQ across from our condo, so we took advantage of that for lunch. So far I like the vibe of Caye Caulker, less traffic and noise, friendly people, and cool places to hang out and watch the sunset.
Mike and Andrew are doing SCUBA tomorrow and Brandon and I are doing a full day snorkel – hopefully we’ll see manatees!
