Our 6 minute flight from Ambergris Caye to Caye Chapel went very smoothy. We flew on the east of Caye Caulker which I have never done before, and it put me on the right side of the plane for taking island air shots
As the plane landed the first thing I noticed was now nice and wide the runway was. I was later told by a few people that is the best runway in Belize and I have to agree. The plane kept going till the end of the runway then turned off to the right parking area where Evan was waiting meet us with golf carts.
After our rock star experience of pulling into the parking lot with the plane. we hopped on our carts and headed towards the club house which was stunning inside. While Evan went to go pick up Phil and Marie who were taking the Caye Caulker Water Taxi, we lounged, explored and enjoyed our magnificent surroundings. It was not long before they returned. Evan got the golfers briefed and we all signed in, for those of us not golfing it cost $50 to spend the day on the island and it was worth every penny.
