This weekend my friend Joanna, a native of Caye Caulker (and fierce entrepreneur), took me to the southernmost point of the island for sunset. Most visitors never venture to this side or even know about it.
When she offered up the idea, of course I was in for some adventure. I didn’t know what to expect and took all my photo gear along, just in case.
After reaching the end point by golf cart, we hiked for a few minutes and came out of the bushes with muddied pants and slippers and a few mosquito bites. But it was worth it – we found that last dock on the tip of the island.
I almost thought I was in Negril, Jamaica (minus the beach!) – the sunset and scenery were breathtaking. I smiled, remembering that way on the other end of the island, tourists were watching sunset from the rowdy Split.
