How to Spend 1 Day in Hopkins - page 3

How to Spend 1 Day in Hopkins

Caye Caulker is the perfect Caribbean island with its "Go Slow" motto matching its rhythm. The relaxed atmosphere, beautiful ocean and many bars and restaurants lining the beach are just some of the things that make this such a great vacation spot.

Day 1: Snorkeling and diving

Head on a snorkeling tour of Hol Chan Marine Reserve, equally close from Caye Caulker as it is from San Pedro. In the afternoon, hop on a snorkel tour of the Caye Caulker Marine Reserve, no more than 15 minutes away. Closer to sunset, head to the Split and the Lazy Lizard for drinks, music and stunning views.

Have dinner at Rose’s Grill, the most popular seafood and BBQ restaurant on the island, where you pick your catch of the day that are beautifully displayed outside the restaurant beside a giant grill, and cooked while you wait. Post dinner, dance to the Reggae tunes at I&I Reggae Bar, a lively multi-level Rastafarian-themed bar and an institution on the island.

Day 2: Explore the streets

Rent a bicycle (unless provided by your hotel) and tour the island, starting at Front Street and heading south. Ride on the beach side and use the narrow pathways. On the way back, cut across at the water taxi terminal and explore Middle and Back Streets. There are only three major streets on Caye Caulker, but plenty of side ones with plenty of village life to see along the way.

Stop for lunch at Syd’s, a local favorite serving the best fried chicken in Belize for just US$5. Burn off your lunch with more biking or rent a kayak and explore the leeward side of the island, where the sea is calm and boat activity is scarce. Spot wildlife on your way and eventually watch the sun set from your canoe.

For dinner, try Little Kitchen, an off the beaten path eatery well worth the find, serving home cooked Central American specialties.  Post-dinner, head to the outdoor Paradiso Cinema to catch a movie under the stars while enjoying cocktails.

Day 3: Visit surrounding islands

Go on an island-hopping trip to neighboring Goff’s Caye, followed by St George’s Caye, to experience authentic Belizean island life away from tourism hot spots. Pristine beaches, snorkeling, swimming, BBQ and swinging in a hammock are the hallmarks of Belize’s cayes. In the evening, head to Habanero’s, the island’s most upscale restaurant for a memorable last dinner on Caye Caulker.
