Tobacco Caye

by Louise

A tiny, relaxed island with turquoise waters! We took a chartered boat from Dangriga and paid about $15 US each. We stayed in Gaviota and, as it was quiet, got a cabana on the shore and 3 meals a day for $25 US each. Lovely meals and included lots of fresh fish, though they lacked a little in vegetables and fruit. If you're planning on drinking or snacking loads bring supplies form Dangriga as it's a little more expensive on Tobacco. There's some interesting oceanlife to see just snorkling off the pier or off the dock near the big restaurant. However if you really want to make the most of being next to the second biggest reef in the world (!), you can get a boat out further for about $10, they'll probably throw in some equipment as well but if you want to snorkel the rest of the time its $10 to rent it for your whole stay. As with Caye Caulker, this is not really a place for beaches as there are rocks and coral that prevent you walking into the water, its more just about jumping in.
