Life on Caye Caulker

The roads are sandy, shoes are optional…

The only vehicles on Caye Caulker are bikes and golf carts. Our hotel provided bicycles for us to use and safety is not much of a concern when living life in the slow lane. We saw many babies tucked into front baskets and kids piled onto the frame or handlebars. We did the same until the hotel staff grabbed us the owner’s bike with a baby seat.

They loaned us a kids bike but Xander did not like riding it. Simon gave it a try and loved it! He navigated potholes and pedestrians like a pro.

Every restaurant has delicious food and sandy floors. Conch ceviche and chips, anyone? I need to start making fresh salsa with lime and cilantro. It was so good!

Just about every meal would end up with Lotus and Simon under the table, playing in the sand.

This vendor got a kick out of Simon. He wanted a necklace and picked out the largest crab claw on the table.
