Goodbye, San Ignacio. Hello, Caye Caulker!

After spending four nights in San Ignacio, the remainder of our trip was to be spent on the island of Caye Caulker. We ate our last breakfast at Parrot Nest, got a ride into town and caught the bus for a three-hour ride back to Belize City.

We meant to take the express bus that would have cost about $90 US, but due to the Saturday street market going on, the express bus was being re-routed to the regular bus stop. There was some miscommunication and we got ushered onto the regular bus. It cost us $16 total for all six of us to make the trip and it wasn’t too bad. Quite an interesting experience, in fact.

Our room was a two-bedroom apartment at the Sea Dreams Hotel. It was right at “The Split” where all the swimming happens and had AC. It was a treat after our jungle accommodations.

Breakfast on the rooftop was included. These were not icky continental breakfasts. There was no menu and each morning was a surprise. The staff would tell us what it was going to be and then bring us each a plate. The coffee was delicious and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Yum!

“The Split” where we swam in the Caribbean Sea. The water was teeming with small fish and crabs. The sun is intense! I missed a small area on my back and it burned the first day. Luckily it was the only burn all week.
