Yesterday, some friends and I went over to Caye Caulker for just a few hours. It’s something you MUST do if you are visiting Ambergris Caye. I still think the best way to do it is a catamaran sail all-day trip (Seaduced does some amazing ones – take a look at the posts below) but, like I did, you can just take the water taxi over for a few hours. Do it.

It’s the best way to see “The Split” in the island.

The story of the split is that the great (great as in large not very good) Hurricane Hattie cut the island in two in 1961. She hit close to Belize City with sustained winds of about 140mph. 307 people were killed in Belize. Hattie also damaged up to 70% of the buildings in Belize City and left 10,000 people homeless. The damage was so severe that the capital city was relocated inland from Belize City to Belmopan.

Many people were relocated to a tent city “out in da bush” that later become the current town of Hattieville (most known for Belize’s prison).
