Day 13: Saturday, 11th January (Continued)
Mexico done - onto Belize!! Unfortunately due to time constraints the only place we had time to visit in Belize was Caye Caulker. We had been told this was a little piece of heaven about 40 mins off the coast of Belize city and was a perfect place to chill for a few days. As we had found sun in …
Why do I travel..such a great question that I ponder many times and have also been asked numerous times, why do we do the things we do? Well here's what I came up with..
When removed from the comfortable surroundings of your own life it gently pushes you to turn to those who are at your side who support you and you find solace in, …
Catch the Hokey Pokey ferry from Placencia at 10am to Independence to catch the 10.30 bus to Belize City. The bus does not turn up until 12.00 when it was in fact due. The bus arrives and we have a 5 hour journey. It passes quite quickly for the first 4 hous as we have a seat each. Once again the scenery is lovely. From the bus station we get a …
Belize is a small country in Central America south of Mexico, northwest of Honduras and north east of Guatemala. It is famous for its coastline and its great diving and snorkeling due to a long barrier reef which runs along side its coast. This place is great! Or, you might say, unbelizeable!
So today the real traveling began from …
The island of Caye caulker is everything you expect from a small Carribean island - their moto is "go slow" and pictures of Bob Marley are hanging everywhere!! Small sandy streets, no cars, wooden piers and beach front shacks for bars -idyllic! A tropical paradise with bright blue skies, 30 degree heat and salty tap water! I could easily stay here …

Historical Traveler Reviews Barefoot Beach Belize/Seaview Hotel Caye Caulker
The spot for relaxing and enjoying!
Afther we'd seen a few hotels on the Island we were very happy to find this one: clean, nice, cosy and it had a little fridge. Afther one day we knew this was perfect: the owner really makes you feel at home and the hammocks overviewing the see are absolutely fabulous. Lying there in the morning with a cop of coffee or in the evening with a bottle of beer you really feel you're in paradise!
Great get away
The best quiet place to unwind. The new owner is constantly updating the units and doing a great job. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the beach front and dock are great for lounging and reading a book. Highly recommend for the budget conscious traveller and for people who want to get back to the basics.
Rest and Relax in the Tropics
I rented the cottage and one of the rooms for two weeks.I have never returned from a vacation so rested.Had a great time ,diving was better than I have experienced.Fishing was beyond belief.I was able to read several books swinging on the hammock at the end of the dock ,breeze blowing with beer in hand.The hospitality of the owner and my accomadations were beyond my expentations, and I hold high standards.What I liked best were the people they had stay,they just don't let anyone rent. Family feel---many good meals and good times shared.
If your looking for a get away this is it!
We just returned from a 10 day stay at the Seaview Hotel. The hotel is directly on the beach with a gorgeous view of sunsets and the breaking surf on the offshore reef. It has a private dock with a palapa (tiki hut) at the end under which you can lounge in the hammocks and read, nap or simply stare out into the big blue. The dock also features an area with lounge chairs where one can bask in the sun.
Fun in the Tropics
For the very best in a perfect tropical vacation you simply must visit the beautiful island of Caye Caulker, Belize. When on this picturesque island the most pleasant place to stay is Barefoot Beach (Seaview Hotel). Situated directly on the beach on the windward side of the island this great little hotel faces the 2nd largest living reef in the world, which can be seen right off shore. The rooms there all have modern beds, Cable TV and A/C available. Reasonable rates make this the best choice for your tropical vacation. So go and visit Kim and Susan Briggs,your hosts, at the Barefoot Beach, they know how important your vacation is to you and will provide you with a quality stay on this beautiful island.
We just returned form a great week in Caye Caulker. We stayed at the Seaview Hotel which was off the beaten path of "downtown". It was very clean, quiet, and relaxing. The owners just purchased the place and are doing a great job of decorating and they make you feel at home. The diving was terrific and informative. We can't wait to return!
We've just returned to reality following 10 days of the best rest and relaxation I've ever experianced. On the island of Caye Caulker at Seaview Hotel we found the cutest little cottage just steps from the sea. Great Kingsize beds, bright and cheerful interior, and the place was as CLEAN and comfortable as any I've seen anywhere. They have the nicest dock on the island. Plenty of lounges and hammocks as well as a tiki hut right on the dock! Very casual- grab fresh towels and such whenever you need them. The hosts respect your privacy and don't bother you at all, but will gladly take all the time you need to help with your plans or just answer our many questions. The view of waves crashing on the reef, the many palms bending in the breeze, the wonderful quiet, the comfort, the welcoming spirit of the owners, and a terrific beach and tiki hut will be great memories- just until we can return in Nov. Can't wait!
We rented out the cottage and it was filthy. It needs major improvements. The linoleum floor was torn, the dresser drawers were rotted out, the mirrors were broken, the bathroom was filthy, the wall near the bed had a hole in it (tissue sticking out of it), the beds could use new mattressess, the ledges on the windows were disgusting, and the new owners were anything but accomodating when we expressed our disapointment in the cottage. We were suppose to stay there for two weeks, but did not last two days. The owners told us that this was "island style" which was not the case. We would have been better off sleeping on the beach.
Sea View was a poor choice
Our room did not have a closet or any place to hang up clothes. It had one electrical outlet for a lamp and a small refrigerator. There was no maid service and we had to go to the owner's unit to get clean towels and toilet paper. There was a broom in the room so we could sweep out the sand. No hot water except in the shower which had an electric shower head. No place to sit outside in the shade except on the dock where there were 2 chairs. The cost was $50 US plus tax per day.
