I had jumped on the water taxi to Caye Caulker. It sounded good on Wikitravel so why not? I thought I might be able to get an afternoon dive in. First job though was to roam around until I found a decent looking hotel, eventually I found the Tropics Hotel. BZD45 a night/USD22 wasn’t bad for a private room!
Then it was island roaming and photo time!
I looked round the dive shops, including the one above, Frenchies, as I was exploring, but none had afternoon dives. I didn’t book a dive for the next day (stupidly). Instead I went off and got a snorkelling tour from my hotel for BZD45!
3 hour tour and totally worth it! Saw a Nurse Shark hiding under some rocks, loads of Stingrays, an Eagle Ray, plenty of Damselfish, a couple of Moray Eels, the works! Friendly group too! Pity I didn’t have an underwater camera.
Chilled out that evening with Ribs for dinner and a few bottles. This place is very laid back… in fact, a bit too much in the evenings! You need to be here with friends, but I did get talking to a few people none the less.
The next day I thought I would get up at 8 and go to the dive shops… uh, I slept in till 9:20 and the latest dive boats leave at 9:30! Great. Missed those despite trying. I’m now chilling at the hotel trying to decide between staying the day and going diving tomorrow or going to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye… hmm…
