The Lazy Lizard at "The Split" in Caye Caulker  
Inland Belize to the Cayes is a very popular tourist route. Many island seeking travellers who are coming to Belize from Mexico and Guatemala skip inland locales and head straight to the beaches of Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye. The Cayes can be easily reached using Belize City as the focal point as there are two highly dependable water taxi services that leave every one to two hours.

Corozal, the northernmost district is connected to Belize City by the Northern Highway. It starts immediately after leaving the Mexican border, enters Corozal town and passes through Orange Walk town and surrounding villages.

In the western part of Belize, travellers in Cayo use the Western Highway to arrive in Belize City. The highway starts off leaving the Guatemalan border and entering Benque Viejo del Carmen. The next big community is the twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena and then there are several villages until arriving at the capital city of Belmopan. From the capital continuing East takes you past other small villages and the Belize Zoo until arriving in Belize City.

And from the southernmost district of Belize, the Southern Highway connects Toledo to Stann Creek and the Hummingbird Highway connects Stann Creek to Belmopan, then entering the Western Highway.

The two water taxi services in Belize City are the San Pedro Belize Express and the Caye Caulker Water Taxi Association. Both water taxies leave from the downtown area and take approximately one hour to Caye Caulker and one hour and a half to Ambergris Caye. Buying a two way ticket saves you some money. From my experience it is best to take the San Pedro Belize Express in opposed to the Caye Caulker Water Taxi, the boats are newer, superior service and it makes better speed.

Other options to reaching the Cayes are flying on Tropic Air or Maya Island Air and for individuals who are in Chetumal – Mexico’s border city to Belize, a few water taxis do direct transfers to Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye.

Blogger and world traveler Roni Weiss was commenting to me how he found it weird that people tend to travel first to the cayes and then move inland when visiting Belize. Generally people visit the mainland and move from there. Very much different in Belize. Good article.

Ambergris Caye is the largest caye in Belize. Ambergris Caye is fun because of the barrier reef’s assorted collections underwater life that promises year-round pleasure and thrill. Ambergris Caye fishing activities includes reef fishing, flat fishing, night fishing and early-morning tarpon fishing. Thanks...
