Yep, thats right todays article is all about Belize- or more specifically Caye Caulker and why its definitely one not to miss for 2016.
A couple of days in Caye Caulker won’t be your biggest adventure to date, instead one of complete and utter bliss. Whether its the clear blue waters, the luscious greenery or the friendly people that catch your eye, this Island has something for everyone.

Belize is an English speaking country and perhaps because of this one of the most  culturally diverse amongst other Latin American countries.  Originally named British Honduras, she offers an international cuisine, happy people and sun drenched days. Caye Caulker pronounced ‘Key’ is about an hour or so from Belize City by boat and is slowly becoming more and more popular each year for those who are discovering Central America.

The island  has sand roads meaning that the Islands only form of transportation are golf buggies. If the white sands and lazy days of drinking pina coladas aren’t totally you’re thing theres also opportunities to get active with activities such as kayaking to paddle boarding and if you so happen to possess a PADI licence then the Blue hole (voted top place to dive in the world)  is at your total disposal.

I visited Caye Caulker with Contiki and i spent my day on the Belize Barrier Reef – the second biggest in the world. We stopped at several locations to swim with turtles, sharks and sting rays and to explore the coral. We also fed bread to some rather large fish. In the evening we had a completely fantastic rum punch cruise. Free Rum Punch. Yum. Whilst listening to delightful caribbean sounds we sailed around the Island and through the Split  into the sunset. We did actually get slightly caught in a rainless thunderstorm but all was well and we had a delightful dinner at a local restaurant.
