Caye Caulker has a lower crime rate than the only other Caye with a community- Ambergris.Check the court news in the Ambergris paper. Violent crime every week.Muggings and assaults are big news on Caye Caulker because it is so rare.
You must be reading a different version of the Ambergris papers than I do. Violence every week? Right. Now if we want to talk about crime, how about nasty beach boys bothering single females in Caye Caulker???
We visted Caulker in March. Met a very atractive Single white female that was 30 years of age. She was traveling alone. We had dinner with her and she advised that she felt safe on the caye. She advised that she had been approached by guys, but there was nothing much to it. If she was okay by herself, ya'll should be fine.
I am a single female. I have visited CC every year that I was able to since the late 80's. By using basic common sense and practising normal safety precautions you will be fine. If you go looking for trouble - you will find it (anywhere you travel). If you don't, then you will not have a worry. Enjoy CC - I have traveled most of the world and continue to consider my self blessed to have been able to find CC.
