Where I stayed
Popeye's Beach Resort
after one day were more than ready to move on.
A 30 minute ferry sped us out to Caye Caulker yesterday and all I can say is 'aaaaahhhhhh.' The village of Caye Caulker is tiny - the entire island is only 5 miles long and 1 mile wide at the widest point. No cars, no paved roads to pollute it. People get around by foot, bicycle, or golf cart. Little kids run around barefoot and peddling around 2 to 3 on a bike all over town. We scored a room at Popeye's Beach resort right on the water
Our first meal was the most simple, delicious, freshly grilled fish I've ever tasted. Tonight we ate fresh shrimp and we're looking forward to the grilled lobster tomorrow. Paradise! I think we're going for a snorkel trip tomorrow to look for stingrays, manatees, and other critters that live in this delicious bathwater they call the Caribbean. Ahhhhhh....
