Caye Caulker, Belize (Day 3)

On our third and final day in Belize, we were feeling a little sick, but headed out on our bikes to find the company Martin had signed up for a scuba dive with.

After seeing him off, I biked back over to a little breakfast place and had a delicious waffle with Nutella and bananas before figuring out what to do for the rest of the morning.  I ended up going back to the cabana and researching ferry times as we had our flight back home that afternoon.  I quickly realized with the time frame of Martin getting back from his scuba adventure, we weren’t going to be able to catch a ferry that would get us back to the mainland in time for our flight.  I remembered reading a recommendation to fly either in or out of Caye Caulker for the sights, and riding past a tiny airport a few days earlier, and decided to ride my bike back to that airport.  So I did just that, and purchased two tickets for us to fly from Caye Caulker, back to the airport where we would catch our Southwest flight that afternoon.  Problem solved!  Man.  What a TINY airport.  It was awesome to not have any lines (or security) though!  I spent the rest of my free time getting a massage in a cabana down by the split, riding my bike around the island, then enjoying a freshly-made smoothie before Martin returned.

Once we grabbed our things at the cabana, we caught a golf cart ride to the airport and boarded our Tropic Air flight back to Belize City to then catch our flight back to Dallas.  The flight to the mainland was definitely worth it, so beautiful!  Plus it was cool to experience such a different, small airplane.
