So Columbus bank holiday weekend was perfectly uneventful. Perfect because as enjoyable the hustle and bustle of high season can be for color and hype, the sleepy streets of October twinned with glorious weather, can be equally as memorable.
The island was far from empty, but there was a more local/ family vibe about the weekend. Not like Easter as this is about the party, but this holiday was about families getting together and enjoying the long weekend weather and having a break together. Most of the groups of main-landers spent their time at the Split – enjoying the water and probably a Belikin beer or two. Some ventured out at night to enjoy I&I and the Oceanside but all enjoying Caye Caulker!!
The newest change on the island is the weather … winter is on its way. Tropical winter, which is unlike what most people think of winter .. no snow, no long sleeves or jackets (well sometimes) but just the cool breeze that when combined with sunshine feels like heaven! So roll on November and December – all we need now is for the island to be sprinkled with tourists and our Xmas will truly be here!
