Answers? A Trip Back To Caye Caulker – Two Times in Two Days
Yesterday I posted about the rumors swirling around the Split at Caye Caulker and about how I thought the easiest way to get the answer about whether or not it was being developed was to ask the owner.
I got a bit of negative feedback about this post. About my superior attitude, general nosey-ness. About how I was trying to create drama (I did concede that many times in yesterday’s post) and how I portrayed the caye in a very negative light.
These concerns started to weigh on me a bit while I was over there. So…after stopping over at the owner’s home to politely inquire (from his lovely family) if he was available and finding that he was not, I decided to just take a leisurely stroll about the island.
Perhaps I’ll shoot him an email. But I’m not expecting much more information. It’s his land. And while plans are still up in the air, I don’t really expect him to share with a total stranger. I mean…I sure wouldn’t.
And I expect things will change slowly…if much at all. But it is certainly something I am going to keep an eye on.
So here is a look around Caye Caulker…
My view on the trip over on the 1pm Water Taxi.
There are a few gorgeous giant breadfruit on the island that I passed…bursting with fruit.
Serious beauties. And I know some mouths are watering. I need to get into breadfruit this year.
Caribbean Colors Cafe and Art Shop, a place I’ve visited in the past, has moved to a new spot just across the street from the former location.
They too are snuggled up to a breadfruit tree and have a small tent out front so you don’t get clobbered by a falling ripe fruit.
The view from my seat.
And the view of Monday’s lunch.
And then a long walk around…
The cutest. Love the conch shell “fence”.
Walking south along the Front Street.
Yesterday my lunch – at Tropical Paradise Resort. I’m a big fan of this place. Great place to stay. Quiet but still very close to everything.
I had the classic stew chicken.
And a bit of coconut pie. Yum.
They are located just behind the cemetery. So pretty.
Walking farther south along the beach path…
I very much want to stay at Colinda Cabanas. The place looks perfect…
And the little cabanas.
And then just south Ignacio’s Beach Cabanas. I love this sign. Beautiful.
And the cabins.
And back down off the beach…but just slightly. This place looks charming.
Another restaurant I need to try.
And right next door the I&I Reggae Bar and Nightclub.
The heat had everyone at home or in the water.
Back out to the sea for some breeze. Some darker summer clouds rolled by…but no rain.
I took a quick pic of these girls with American accents taking some vacation shots.
And then it was time to head home…but with another list of places I need to visit, things to do and place to overnight.
See you next time Caye Caulker!
