Accommodations on Caye Caulker have improved over the years. But there are still no resorts or real luxury options to be had. In my opinion, this adds to the charm of the place. Budget and midrange lodging options are abundant, and some of these are quite comfortable.

If you plan on staying for any period of time, you should look into renting a small cottage, condo, or apartment. Look around for signs or bulletin boards, or check with Amanda at Caye Caulker Rentals (tel./fax 226-0029; Rates begin at around BZ$100 (US$50/£27) per night, although during the high season rates go up and longer stays are often required. Another option is the fully equipped efficiency units at Caye Caulker Condos (tel./fax 226-0072;, which rent for between BZ$180 and BZ$260 (US$90-US$130/£48-£69) per night.

Moderate -- Popeye's Beach Resort (tel. 226-0032; is another good option in this price range, with air-conditioned rooms and an oceanfront setting.

Inexpensive -- There are literally scores of budget options on Caye Caulker. I list my favorite and the most dependable options. Tina's Backpacker's Hostel (tel. 226-0351; is probably the best of the rock-bottom budget options, while Maxhapan Cabinas (tel. 226-0118; gets high marks for its intimate vibe and personable service.
