Caye Caulker to Dangriga, Belize
We made an impromptu decision to blow our budget and sign up for a three day sailing trip going from Caye Caulker, south, to Dangriga, Belize. After indulging on baked goods, we walked to the waterfront where we would meet our fellow sailors and crew. We rationalized the sailing trip as the best way to see and live Belize, and it wasn’t going to be cheap for us to hangout on Caye Caulker and Ambergris, as we would be doing day trips otherwise.
The sailing trip was incredible. It was without a doubt the right choice. Everything about the trip was great. The people were awesome, the fishing was superb (I hooked a 25 pound Barracuda which we ate that night), we spearfished, camped on beautiful remote cayes, ate fresh conch ceviche, and drank lots of tropical rum punch in the evenings. 10/10 I would do it again. After becoming partially mute in Guatemala because my Spanish isn’t good enough to carry on any meaningful conversation, it was a relief to converse with others in English. The snorkeling was a highlight for us; we snorkeled with HUGE rays, nurse sharks, and amongst beautiful reefs. We are avid snorkelers, so for us this was a main draw to do the tour. Three days of chilling in the sun, eating good food, and seeing first hand the beauty of the tropical caribbean water; you would have to be some kind of special to not enjoy this trip.
