What are the 10 best things to do on Caye Caulker at night?
There’s something to be said about rising and setting with the sun when you’re slowing down on an island.
But, there’s also something to be said about squeezing every last experience out of life.
If you subscribe to the latter philosophy, add these 10 evening activities on Caye Caulker to your itinerary while the rest of the nerds on the island sleep!
1. Karaoke, Live Music, and Trivia on Caye Caulker
The Barrier Reef Sports Bar hosts regular trivia nights on Caye Caulker along with karaoke and live music from various bands and musicians in and around the island.
Check out the Barrier Reef Sports Bar Facebook page to see what’s coming up next during your stay.
Taking part in the trivia, karaoke, and live music events is one of the best things to do at night in Caye Caulker cause it’s so low effort and involves beer – what’s not to like?

2. Catch a Movie Night or Concert at Koko King Beach Bar
Koko King is a beach bar on the northern side of Caye Caulker across The Split, so you’ll have to take their regular water taxi from Calle del Sol to reach it. (The taxi is free if you spend money on food or drink at the bar.)
According to this Koko King schedule of events, they have outdoor movie nights on Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 pm and live music on Saturday night from 7 to 10 pm.
Times and events may change (especially between the low and high season) so I recommend checking their Facebook page or shooting them an email to confirm before trekking all the way over (or popping by the dock and asking the water taxi captain!).
Sunset at the Iguana Reef Inn
3. Catch the Sunset on a Sunset Sailing Tour (or at these restaurants)
There are tons of sunset sailing tours on Caye Caulker. To name a few, you can choose from:
- Ragamuffin Tours – 37.50 usd per person
- EZ Boy Tours – 50 usd / minimum of 6 people required
- Liberty Tours – 80 bzd / 40 usd per person
…and many, many more scattered around the island and the corners of the internet.
But, you can also get pretty much the exact same view for free from any sunset-view restaurant or dock on the west side fo Caye Caulker. So, I recommend that instead.
4. Stargaze (on a Crocodile Cruise)
Just like the sunsets you can and should stargaze on Caye Caulker.
The skies are clear and gorgeous on a cloudless night. I also spotted a few shooting stars and made plenty of wishes during my stay.
If you’re looking for more, though, Tsunami Adventures offers a pretty interesting Caye Caulker stargazing tour that includes searching for crocodiles, seeing bioluminescence, and stargazing from a boat away from the lights of Caye Caulker for 25 usd per person. It departs at 7:30 pm.
5. Get Drunk
Hey, it’s a classic evening activity in Caye Caulker and I had to include it.
One of the best things to do on Caye Caulker at night is to enjoy a few brews and unwind from a tough day of doing absolutely nothing.
A lot of people recommend the I & I Reggae Bar but it was absolutely dead every time I walked past it at night… maybe that’s just because I was there in the low season?
Or, buy your own beer at any of the markets and drink on a dock, in a hammock, on your balcony, etc. etc. This is the most budget-friendly option and one that I tend to enjoy more and more as I inch closer to 30.
Anyway, those are a few of the top options, but Caye Caulker is tiny so take a lap through town and see which bar has the best vibe that particular night.
6. Chill Out at a Spa
Okay this one is a bit of a stretch because the two spas on Caye Caulker close at 5 pm and 6 pm but that’s kind of night time, right?
Check the sites for more specifics and to book your package!
7. Go Night Fishing
If fishing is your thing you can try your luck at night with a night fishing tour from Tsunami Adventures.
This tour costs 200 usd and can accommodate up to four people, so get a group together and it’ll only be 50 usd per person. The price includes a guide, gear, snacks, water, and soda.
Barefoot Fisherman also offers a night fishing expedition (no prices listed on the website though) and I’m sure a quick Google search will turn up more options as well.
8. Go Night Snorkeling
I’ve never gone snorkeling at night but the concept has me intrigued.
Our old pals Tsunami Adventures (I swear I’m not an affiliate they just have cool tours) offer a night snorkeling package that advertises the chance to see octopus and squids among many other animals. The trips cost 45 usd per person and begin at dusk.
There are so many snorkeling companies on the island that you have endless options, though.
9. Book a Night Dive (Must Have Your Advanced PADI Certification)
You need to have an advanced PADI certification to do night dives (the first level, Open Water, isn’t enough) but if you have one you can enjoy the nocturnal life on the second largest barrier reef in the world with night dives on Caye Caulker.
Frenchie’s Diving Services and Belize Diving Services and two of the most popular dive shops on the island.
10. Book an Overnight Camping Trip
Last but certainly not least on this extensive list of things to do at night in Caye Caulker are overnight camping trips on nearby islands.
If Caye Caulker isn’t peace and remote enough for you, Liberty Tours will take you back to the basics with their overnight camping package on a secluded island.
The price is pretty reasonable at 400 bzd / 200 usd per person because it also includes three meals, snorkeling, camping and fishing gear, and the boat transport of course.
This isn’t really a last-minute or low key thing to do on Caye Caulker at night but if you’re in the early stages of planning your trip I’m sure adding this to your itinerary would be an unforgettable experience.
