POSTCARD - Caye Caulker, Belize

You better Belize it. You can find this cheesy but very fitting slogan posted everywhere on Caye Caulker a perfect Caribbean island just off the coast of mainland Belize. It's a place we found so unbelizable we gave up on traveling the rest of central America in favor of staying a month.

Great diving, food and culture where all factors but the biggest reason we stayed was friendship. Unlike most other places through Central America we managed to become considered a local and not just another tourist. The hustlers didn't hustle us, the tour operators wouldn't try to catch our attention as we walked and we could have real conversations and experiences with local people. It was a place that even after we had spent a month there we really didn't want to leave.

Few times in travel do you find this level of happyness with your surrounds and company so when you do stumble accross such a situation why not forego the relentless urge to move on and stay a while.
