Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker is an island (or a Caye) off the coast of Belize.  It takes about an hour to get there by water taxi.  On this particular trip, all of the exchange students decided to make a weekend trip out of it.  The sun was shining, the sky was clear blue, the sea was coloured deep shades of turqouis and everyone was in a phenomenal mood.  We sat on top of the boat taking it all in.  All I could think was: this can't be real life.  Imagine being this close to something so beautufl all the time.   Once we got to Caye Caulker we began hunting for a place to stay, everywhere was pricey except for one tiny place that was hidden between the streets; it was tiny little wooden shacks right on the sand.  It was about 15 dollars a night.  I wish I could remember the name.  It escapes me now.

We went to this place on the beach for a delicious lobster dinner.  It’s run by a big big man who grills fish as you walk by.  Later we found ourselves sitting in hammocks and drinking rum till early in the morning.  

We took a walk around the tiny caye, the roads all made of sand, the only vehicles permitted are golf carts.  You can see the Caribbean on all sides of you at all times.  

It was tranquil and beautiful.  

SIDE NOTE:  Do not get a tattoo in the limits what you can do.  I missed out on swimming with the sting rays and the sharks because I couldn't get the tat wet!!!

Another reason to go back.

Peace and Love <3
