“Go slow” is the motto and true feel of Caye Caulker island in Belize. This is laid-back Caribbean bliss at its best, without any kind of mass holiday resort feel, and with opportunities for sea adventures. Yuma’s House, a beautiful, peaceful hostel with dorms and private rooms is just 100 metres from the water taxi port. During lobster season, which begins in June, a three-course lobster dinner costs around £10. Other cafes sell barbecued jerk chicken with bottomless rum punch for similar prices. Snorkelling tours to the barrier reef, with nurse sharks, loggerhead turtles and giant rays, cost about £45 including lunch.
