When we have friends visit us, we love to take them to the lagoon side of Caye Caulker to feed the tarpon. We drive our boat over from San Pedro and stop by to buy fish food. That’s right – there is a woman on Caye Caulker who has made a business selling “fish food” for the tarpon feeding. She is located in a small, wood casita by the tarpons and sells a bag of fish food (sardines) for only $5 dollars Belize!
After we buy the fish food we give instructions….sort of:
Hold the fish close to the water and wait
Sometimes the tarpon grabs the fish gently…..but other times?
There is blood – lots of blood!
Where else can you get this much entertainment for only $5 dollars?
Be sure to have your volume on so you can get the full fish experience!
