Finally made it to Caye Caulker and had to see the Lizard, still working on repair of the damage fro the storm but was not crowded and spent a few hours enjoying buckets of beer and cracked conch which was very good. Friendly waitress and nice views and a great way to spend a few hours.;

We went to "the Split" as we do on every visit to the island. They are in the process of renovating the Lazy Lizard after Hurricane Earl and so it was a bit loud and frenetic. But, more than that, the entire atmosphere has changed. Where this used to be a hangout for all ages, now it is geared towards... More

This bar is nice because it's right at the split between the north and south islands of caye caulker. Has a few games, all outdoor space. It's what you would imagine a bar would look like for very laid back spring breakers or college students with a few locals thrown in.

This is basically the only place to get into the water on the island that we knew of. The staff was not very friendly at all, but it was fun to jump in the water. We didnt eat here so i cant comment on that. Its the place to go for a day party and some tanning.

Went for lunch and had fish tacos. The fish was deep fried and rather dry. Overall the only reason to go is to say you have been there, unless you are young and want to hang out and have drinks that are a bit over priced.

This was my second time visiting the Lazy Lizard in the past year. Caye Caulker had a storm come through since my last visit, and the dock at the Lazy Lizard was destroyed. They rebuilt some of the dock, but there is still come rubble in the water. The water is deeper and the current stronger than you'd expect, so... More

Local "watering and swimming hole". Great bar and most popular place on the island. We didn't eat, but lots of food was being served and looked really good. We stopped in a least once a day!

Nice place to hang out. The bar is at the split. They are missing the tables in the water now, thanks to hurricane Earl. The music sets the mood and the view is great, especially at sunset. People were just hanging out on the dock. It was very nice. We had the conch fingers and they were delicious. The drinks... More
