Cause every little thing, is gonna be all right.

Miro on the water taxi

We grooving in the deliciousness of the Caribbean lifestyle, papayas, pineapples and rum in abundance. We arrived two days ago in Caye Caulker, Belize and it was easy to adjust. Our journey took us on an overnight bus from Cancun to Chutumal, then we hopped onto a shuttle which took us across the border of Belize, then we ended up in Belize City. From there, we caught a morning water taxi to the a small island called Caye Caulker. It was many hours of traveling, but we were able to sleep in the first bus, at least.

We landed on this tiny island, (measuring only 5 miles by less than 1 mile) at the sandy beach-front dock, no bands of vendors in sight, like the ones we experienced in Cozumel. I was in complete comfort in the rustic surrounding and to my amazement, got into the rhythm of the island without an ounce of resistance.

Our last two days have been spent soaking up sun at the island’s only beach called “the split”. Apparently this narrow waterway where the island divides the island in two, was created by Hurricane Hattie in 1961. Miro has spent the better part of two days in the water, splashing, playing and swimming and just enjoying the moment. The food is amazing, some of the best seafood I’ve had in ages. We’ve truly adjusted to being on “island time” enjoying the Caribbean, the delicious panty rippers (a coconut rum and pineapple cocktail) and the swarms island locals and travelers alike.

Yes, this is the Caribbean and every little thing is gonna be all right. Don’t worry about a thing…
