After a harrowing border crossing from Mexico, we finally arrived in Belize City and headed straight for the water taxi to Caye Caulker, a small island off the coast. This would be our base for exploring the barrier reef and other islands in the area.
Here is a suggested 3 day itinerary for staying on the island…
The day started well with waffles for breakfast at Bang Bang Kitchen before the shuttle picked us up around 8am. After an hour and a half we arrived at the parking lot, where de donned our safety helmets as the rain came down harder.
We trudged through the jungle and mud to the first of three river crossings, not going to lie, the water was freezing! There would be two more of these crossings before we reached the muster point, a little section of cleared land just metres from the cave entrance. Here we added head lamps to our helmets and received the final safety briefing before descending the steps to the cave mouth.
