Where to drink

Head to The Split (pictured) on the northern tip of the island to enjoy a cocktail at the Lazy Lizard. Picnic benches sit in the shallow blue waters, reggae beats keep the barmen swinging and friendly faces will ensure you stay there all day. Look out for the guy who sells delicious shrimp kebabs nearby (5 Belize dollars).

Fancy a big night? I&I is a great place to meet fellow travellers and you’ll soon be up on the dance floor or chilling out on one of the swings by the bar. Afterwards, head to Oceanside (pictured below), the only club on the island. On Wednesdays girls drink free and on Thursdays you can sing your heart out at karaoke…

Another great place to spend the evening is at Bellas hostel on Crocodile Street. This hippy little hangout hosts regulalr bonfires, late night parties and stunning views of the ocean.

TOP TIP Drugs on Caye Caulker are rife – you only have to walk down the street and you’re bombarded with offeres of ‘snowflake’ (cocaine) or weed. However drunk you get, don’t touch it – police come down hard on tourists and you’re a long way from home if you need a lawyer.

Where to eat

Most restuarants offer guests two free sides, rum punch and a starter with the barbecue, so check out the competition before you settle at one particular bar. We loved Rose’s Bar & Grill – you can even choose which lobster you want…
