Belize’s Caye Caulker lies 21 miles northeast of Belize City in the Caribbean Sea, a 45-minute water taxi ride from Belize City. With English spoken in a sing-songy lilt, it’s easy to communicate and the tropical climate makes it a great place to escape the winter. There is a rainy season from July through to October, but it’s still warm! On arrival, its colourful cluster of brightly painted low-level buildings on the northern tip of the island makes it look crowded, but stepping onto white sandy streets you’ll find the only thing going faster than walking pace are golf carts and bicycles, and maybe the occasional runner. ‘Go Slow’ signs refer to life, not the non-existent cars.
