Subject: Caye Caulker

Message: as a recent visitor, we were completely distraught by the condition of this pearl in the sea. the one place to swim, the split, was in terrible condition. the locals tell me they have 6 mo of no people...clean up the split so that it isn\'t like swimming in a dump. use a rake to clean up the sand along the piers. neither of these things cost any money. give a day a week. have some pride in the island by keeping it clean and drug free. we, people that like to snorkle would rather go somewhere else that is clean. NO water in most places that provide food. Did I pick up my intestional bug there? I have gone to many islands to snorkle. the island is interesting and some people seem to know about upkeep! I could love this place.

Interesting and puzzling, because Caye Caulker is pretty darn clean for an island. The village council rakes the beaches regularly. I was just at the split today and beside the fact that the sea wall is broken (and charming) it wasn't dirty or trash ridden. This could be from a cruise ship tourist who was here only a couple of hours and caught us on a bad beach day.

I think that people sometimes have very different perceptions of places. I've spoken to one or two people from the mainland who have visited San Pedro once or twice and they describe it as filthy, with broken glass everywhere, garbage strewn with drug dealers on every corner. Sometimes I wonder if they visited the same place that I live. As they say, you can please some of the people some of the time...
