Caye Caulker

My wife and I have never been to Belize and are considering spending a week on Caye Caulker, Belize, in an AirBnb (?) on the west side of the island (to avoid sea grasses--so we've heard--on the east side), this (mid-) October. We'd like a quiet place where we can cook, hang out on a quiet and clean beach, be safe, ride bikes to other places, hang out (paint, write, nap, canoodle, etc.). IS IT SAFE (We're 60 and 70 and reasonably fit)? Suggested places to stay ($55-$99 price range per night for a week). Any special deals? THANKS A LOT

The back side of Caye Caulker doesn't really have beaches. We stay on the south edge of town, east side at a place that has a wonderful dock - great for swinging in a hammock or taking a swim. One advantage of the east side is you get more breezes and (I've read) fewer bugs. We're in our 60s and while Guatemala is our favorite, we love Belize for mainland activities like hiking, adventure caving, Maya sites, and the wonderful Belize Zoo, as well as blue water time. Here's where we stay on Caye Caulker, highly recommended.


My photos with blog links on the main page of each collection are below in case you're interested - all my recommendations are embedded there.

Happy trails!
