The Island of Caye Caulker - Day Three
There is not much to this island, there is a sign where you arrive that says "Go slow, we have 2 cemeteries and no hospital". It is actually nice to go somewhere and you don't have to so anything, there's not much site seeing unless we take a day trip off the island and you can walk basically from one end (of the civilization filled part) to the other in about 20 minutes. The route consists of restaurants, bars, shops, guest houses/ hotels and dive shops. The split is on one end which is what they call the beach, it's not actually a beach just a designated area to swim. Ben and I went for a dip yesterday and while the water is super clear and warm the area wasn't what i would consider kid friendly. He loves the water so with two of us there next time it should go better. The island is in general very kid friendly it is just hard to let go of our American expectations especially when it comes to safety but then again the kids here seem to function on their own just fine. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
