Caye Caulker

Belizeing it in Belize

Caye Caulker, I like the sound of that name! Well having left paradise, Tobacco Caye that is, we headed for another island that was supposed to be similar to Tobacco Caye, just a little bit bigger with more restaurants, more bars and more action. We found a nice place there secluded on the quiet side of town.

The first days we took it easy, cruising around in Patrick’s golf cart and smelling the sweet fumes of crack that was rising from the shacks in the poorer part of town and sitting on the pier at a bar called Lazy lizard sipping down beers. Talking about lazy, we have become so lazy that nothing interests us apart from chilling out with a cold beer. Fishing? Nooo! Snorkelling? Nooo! Go on day trips? Nooo! Dive the world famous blue hole? Nooo! Have another beer? YEEES! One can tell that 14 months of travelling is taking its toll.








Suddenly we met John and Kristen that we had already met at Tobacco Caye

At one point while having delicious sea food we met a Finnish family that were travelling around, a bit of chit-chat, cool hadn’t seen any Finns for a while. Sitting at the Lazy lizard there was another Finnish couple. Walking back from the Lazy lizard we met another couple from Finland. Coming back to our hotel 2 Finnish guys had checked in! What the hell, we have met more Finns in Caye Caulker than we have during our whole time of travelling. Of the 5 rooms at our hotel, 3 were occupied by Finns at some point. It has been fun to have a bit of suomi ’meininki’, that is sitting in peace and drinking spirits!

Some of the Finns gathered

In the end, what did we do on Caye Caulker? Nothing apart from eating lobster and drinking beer!
