About Caye Caulker, Belize

The inhabitants of Caye Caulker have traditionally made their living from the sea. Fisher-folk inhabited the island, which became a regular stop-over for buccaneers in the 17th century. This was the perfect spot to boost their supplies and repair their galleons.

Luciano Reyes bought Caye Caulker in 1870 and gave land to a few families. Their descendants are still living on the island of Caye Caulker and are very proud of their history.

The island is mainly populated by Mestizos and Creoles. Reggae can be heard almost everywhere. The Garfiuna also made their way to Caye Caulker and their unique music with its rhythmic drum beats can be heard on the island.

You can eat delicious locally caught sea food, or meat, as that's available too. Try the spicy jerk meat dishes with rice and cooked vegetables.

Caye Caulker is a laid-back island and a great place for unwinding - and its car-free!
