Caye Caulker, Belize


We just got back from Belize last week and Rex asked us to check out Caye Caulker, his favorite place down there. We are planning a trip back there together later. What follows is our report to Rex and Mary..........



Here is Popeye's resort. It looks great and will suit our needs, I believe. It is a great location, close to everything on the Caye (that is a joke, everything is close to everything on the Caye!).....


.....it has a delightful open air bar on the beach with a pirate theme........


.....unfortunately, we got there a few minutes late. (old family saying:"you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning").......


.........here is a little sign with a bit of history..........


......the rooms are spartan and clean, with AC. The prices seemed reasonable, you can probably learn more online about the season rates.....

......the view from the top is not breathtaking, but damned near. The little island is free. The beach bar is to the right..............


........I throw in this view from our house yesterday, about halfway through a three day storm that brought us 12 inches of snow. Now Popeye's looks pretty good?..........


........you will remember that Caye Caulker has a few sights not seen elsewhere in Belize.........


........this is our favorite bar, very close to Popeye's (is that line still funny, or what?). It has seven TV's, is on the beach and they will dial up any sport you ask for. We were there last on a Sunday in November and they had seven different NFL games on at once. I love their "happy hour" on the sign..........


.......not to be outdone, this is their neighbor's sign and I love it too. Unfortunately, to be honest, I was happy when I walked in there. It's Caye Caulker and everyone is happy.....


The biggest problem with Caye Caulker is forgetting to leave. The last boat leaves at about 3:45PM Here we are at the Uno Mas bar and I have stuck my water taxi pass to my forehead to serve as a reminder to the bartender that I must be on the dock at 3:30........



.....DAMN!!. Here comes the water taxi, right on time. There will be another blog on CC soon.........
