the south end of the island to the split. Also, how hard is it to get a taxi or should we simply rent a bike.

About a good mile or so to the split from the south. Taxi? There's no taxis on Caulker, honey, but you might make a pal who can give you a lift on their golf cart if they're headed that way.

Renting a bike is cool, but make sure it's not rickety and rusted out. You can rent a cart as well, but shop around. Gas ones are bank, electric is cheaper and it's better for the people, the land, and the critters.

I think walking is chill; good for mind, body, and soul.

Thanks. We get there tomorrow and are renting a place from Amanda Badger. For a walk of a mile, we'll probably just walk and not worry about it. Amanda indicated there were golf cart taxis. Maybe she exaggerated a bit? We're looking forward to a few days.

Golf cart taxis? Well, you can probably offer someone some change for a lift, but there are no proper 'taxis' on Caulker. Maybe gypsy taxis, which I gotta admit is resourceful.

Amanda's is a cool spot. Good choice! Have coffee at Cindy's! Marla's Kitchen has yummy food. Try to support local people while you're there. It's real rough running a business down there these days.

OK. We generally try to act like we live there. Its nice to meet some of the people and get a feel of what the place is like. We really liked the people in Placencia and I'm sure will like the people on Caye Caulker as well.

try Syd's for dinners-Glenda for breakfast-Monche's for lunches-Marla's is very fine-also Wish Willy's for dinner.And don't forget Elba's grill on the street down towards the Oceanside-she's the one.

We have had golf cart taxis for a long time. They charge Bz$5. You can ride a bike anywhere with ease. Few locals can live without one and Amanda rents them cheaply.Note;if Amanda says one thing and these posts say another-Amanda is usually right.She is a charming English woman who everyone favors.

The walk from Amanda's to the Split isn't too long. And if you're an early riser like me Roses Cafe serves take out coffee at 6 AM. 12 straight days I picked up a large coffee for me and a small for the wife for 3 dollars Belize. Good coffee. [Linked Image]

For excellent golf cart taxi service, try Rainbow Taxi Service. They are based out of the Rainbow Hotel. Tel.# 501-226-0123.
It is well worth the few dollars to have them transport you and your luggage to/from the water taxi and/or airport. They will also take you on a tour of the island if you like. Say Hi to Champ and/or Minerva if you see them!
