Join us on our idylic small coral island
off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea

Located just off the coast,  21 miles from Belize City, Caye Caulker feels like its light years away.

This tiny coral island is just a half mile wide and five miles long traversed by sandy roads used by golf carts, bicycles, flip-flop clad pedestrians and the random napping dog– no cars!  “Go slow” is the motto of this peaceful fishing village with colourful clapboard houses.

Caye Caulker, surrounded by a turquoise sea, just a mile from the barrier reef teeming with fish, turtles and rays, beckons you to get into the water  to experience fantastic diving, snorkeling and sailing around the Caye.

So come visit Macaw Apartments and settle into a hammock and enjoy this Caribbean oasis where laid-back is an understatement.

CAYE CAULKER

Caye Caulker is a small limestone coral island off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea measuring about 5 miles (8.0 km) (north to south) by less than 1 mile (1.6 km) (east to west). The town on the island is known by the name Caye Caulker Village.

APARTMENT LOCATION

There are only three main street on Caye Caulker: residents call them front street, middle street and back street.  The streets were given new names a few years back but they haven’t really caught on. Macaw Apartments is on Avenida Mangle or Back Street right in the heart of the village offering a quiet oasis just a few minutes walk from all amenities and two short blocks from the noise and hustle of Front Street.

GETTING THERE

Travelling to Caye Caulker is part of the experience. Take a quick taxi ride from the international airport and board a boat; there’s something about magical about arriving by boat. Take a look at Ocean Ferry and  Belize Water Taxi. Both operate on regular schedules to/from Caye Caulker every day of the year. If you would prefer to fly, Caye Caulker is just a short 10-minute flight from the International Airport. You will enjoy spectacular views of the sparkling iridescent blue water.  Check out Tropic Air and Maya Island Air.
