It's hard to get lost in a place where the three main streets are called Front Street, Back Street, and Back Back Street!! During my stay in Caye Caulker I guess it'd be fair to say that I almost literally walked all over the island quite a few times. On every little street you'll uncover some picturesque scene that will make you reach out for your camera. Most of the restaurants and shops are found on Front Street (its real name is Avenida Hicaco), on Back Street (Avenida Langosta) you'll find a bit of everything, including most services such as convenience stores, laundrymats, the bank, school and church, while Back Back Street (Avenida Mangle) is where most of the locals live. My favorite time to explore the island was late in the afternoon, when kids were coming home from school and parents were coming home from work. That's when it was possible to get the best glimpse into day-to-day life on the island and meet smiling people everywhere :o)
