Getting to Caye Caulker from Belize International Airport is pretty easy, its as a simple as wakling over to the Tropic Air ticket counter, right in the terminal, and getting a 15 minute flight to Caye Caulker for around $90 bz one way. You can book your Tropic Air flight in advance right on the internet. Or, you can take a cab to Belize City for $15 U.S. and then a water taxi for 15 bz, but the last boat to Caye Caulker leaves the Marine Terminal at 3 p.m. If your flight is late arriving you might end up spending the night in Belize City (yuk)
The people of Caye Caulker and most of the travelers coming for vacation are layed back and friendly, that is why they chose Caye Caulker, rather than San Pedro or Cancun. San Pedro is much more upscale, touristy, lots more cars and golf carts and faster paced.
Snorkeling and diving from CC is spectacular, and the guides are professional. If you still want to go to San Pedro, day trips that include snorkeling and a couple of hours in San Pedro are available every day through most tour operators, along with water taxi service every 2 hours or so, during daylight hours. Mainland tours are available right from Caye Caulker, Altun Ha ruin tours, River boat tours, all can be booked from Caye Caulker.
You WONT have any problems meeting people and having a great time on Caye Caulker.
