Located within easy distance of Ambergris Caye, the small island of Caye Caulker is only five miles (8km) long and less than one mile (1.6km) wide. Getting around on Caye Caulker couldn't be easier; everything is within walking distance, and there are bicycles and golf carts available for hire. More laid-back than its larger neighbour, Caye Caulker is only beginning to be developed for tourism, and is still more popular with backpackers and budget travellers for its cheaper prices. Fishing, kayaking, sailboating, kite surfing, scuba diving, and snorkelling are the main activities here, and you can spot sting rays, nurse sharks, and manatees in the water.
