The guest house itself is bright and colourful and the rooms are clean and spacious. The best part about this accommodation option is the wide variety of rooms on offer. Whether you’re a solo traveller on a budget, or a family looking for an ocean front apartment, De Real Macaw has it all.

Note: De Real Macaw is a great budget – midrange option. For more upscale places, check out Luxury Latin America.

The Rooms

We stayed in one of the Sea View Rooms and it was spacious, breezy and comfortable. The room includes air conditioning and at just over $50 USD, it’s a bargain compared to other rooms with A/C on Caye Caulker.

The Rooms At De Real Macaw

The sea view rooms are a good midrange option, but De Real Macaw also has great budget rooms from just $25. There are also 2 bedroom condos for $130 / night and a 2 bedroom beach front home for $120. This place is certainly not short on accommodation options!

The Location

De Real Macaw is located just steps from the water along the main drag on Caye Caulker. Just a short walk to The Split, minutes away from the island’s best restaurants & bars and a few hundred meters from the water taxi and ferry terminal. You can’t beat the Macaw’s location.

The Vibe

With palm trees gently swaying over head, a cool and comfortable central garden out front, views of the sea and plenty of hammocks, the vibe at De Real Macaw matches the island perfectly… relaxed! Whether you explore the island on foot or just laze around the guest house in your hammock, make sure you follow Caye Caulker’s motto: “Go Slow”.

  1. That place looks so cute! And weird observation – I love the fact there’s so much sand in the street. I know that’s to be expected being so close to the water, it’s just…it makes the place look so cool. 😀

  2. Ah, looks so nice! We had tried to stay there but they were full 🙁 Instead we split our time with the Ocean Pearle Royale Hotel and Mara’s Place. Ocean Pearle was basic but still nice and incredible value on Caye Caulker (I think it was <US$30). Mara's was double the price yet not much nicer. Next time we'll have to try for De Real Macaw. Just the name makes me smile.

  3. For such a small island, Caye Caulker is full of accommodation options, isn’t it?! Glad you were able to find somewhere else to stay. De Real Macaw is a popular choice and seems to be fully booked most of the time 🙂
