Water taxi to Caye Caulker from the mainland.
My mom, my sister and I met up in Belize for a week-long vacation. The tiny Central American country has a reputation for excellent natural preserves (both above and below the ocean), and fantastic Mayan cities. We were psyched for both! We flew in to Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport, the only international airport in Belize. It is very small, but there's a restaurant and a bank, and several stores. We arrived around noon, so we had a bite to eat at the restaurant before continuing on. In contrast with the U.S., the airport food is actually quite good!

We didn't dally in Belize City, but got a cab directly from the airport to the Marine Terminal. From there, it was a 45 minute trip by speed boat (the water taxis) to Caye Caulker. We chose this caye because of it's reputation for being laid back and slow going ("Go Slow" is actually their motto). It's not the place for a wild nightlife (go to San Pedro/Ambergris Caye for that), but we were all about relaxing on this trip. There's very little traffic, mostly golf carts and bicycles. I think we saw a total of three automobiles during our entire 4 day stay. We did see one golf cart with ground effects. Sort of "Pimp My Cart" action. : D
