Another restful night greeted with ninja like hostel companions. To say the least, I was not hopeful at best with the expected noise level of sharing a hostel dorm with 13 Colombians. To my delight, they were the most courteous roommates I think I’ve had.
So far the weather on Caye Caulker has been rainy, with glimpses of blue sky. Today was looking much the same. Despite the light rain, I took the free kayak offered with my hostel for a lap around the island.
Smooth waters and a gentle current made for a good start to the day, while only interrupting one eagle ray on the paddle.
At around midday the sun finally made a full blown appearance and we all finally had a look at what Caye Caulker had to offer.
The lady that ran the hostel I am staying at recommended Koko King as a good way to spend the sunshine, with beers and floaties on the northern part of Caye Caulker. Turns out this was not exclusive advice as I received texts from the travel buddies saying this was the place to be also. Sounds like solid info.
We made our way to the boat landing located right next to the islands power station for a free boat ride over. Just spend $10 BZ ($5 US) at the bar and the ride is free back. No problem.
Happy hour and a tropical downpour was the story of the afternoon, with a session back at Dirty McNastys before having a late one at the Sports Bar.
So far the sun has only made one prolonged appearance, and it was clear why people came to Caye Caulker. The island is beautiful. Hopefully the sun stays out a little longer so Caye Caulker can really show off. I had a recommendation for some snorkelling tomorrow so if I wake up in time, that should be me for the day.
Stay tuned for some sharks and sea life tomorrow.
