Daily life in Caye Caulker, a small coral island (pop. 1,300) off the coast of Belize.
Taxi – The roads are paved with sand and the taxis are all golf carts
Fishermen’s Wharf – Pelicans gather to catch a free meal
A Frigate bird tries to steal the catch. Frigates are huge, gliding birds who rule the sky in Caye Caulker. Pelicans are excellent fliers at low altitudes, but they aren’t as speedy or maneuverable. When they got together, we saw some excellent dogfights.
[Financial district] – View from the roof of the Lazy Lizard – In the evening most of the town gathers at the Lazy Lizard cafe and bar, which offers excellent (and cheap) happy hour rum drinks and a great view of the sunset. There’s also a swimming and snorkeling spot, which is nice as long as you avoid the boats going through the canal.
