I have read that caye caulker attracts mostly backpackers. Is this really true? We are active 80 year olds who love snorkeling. Would we be out of place?

Caye Caulker attracts all ages -- you won't be out of place.

I'd say that lower budget travellers prefer CC because it has tended to be a bit cheaper and not as developed as Ambergris Caye.

We are in our upper 50's and also enjoy snorkeling and LOVE Caye Caulker. We saw a wide range of ages there. I didn't consider it a purely backpackers and we never felt out of place.

Oops - fibbed about your age the wrong way. :-) We're in our 60s and love Caye Caulker.

My husband is 60 and usually pretty buttoned down and I am a free sprit 56 and we never feel out of place in Caye Caulker. Enjoy yourselves!

We have the same question. Seriously considering full time retirement on CC. We will be taking our first trip in Jan 18 but love everything we read and see about Belize.

I will be 56 and she will be 54 both healthy and love diving fishing and the like.
