Pause Hostel
A Place Where Animal Lovers Stay

Welcome to PAUSE Caye Caulker! A place where animal lovers stay!

If you’re looking to enjoy the relaxed, colorful lifestyle of the Caribbean in a beautiful, tranquil setting, you’ve found the right place! In addition to offering different types and levels of budget-friendly accommodation, we run P.A.W (Protecting Animal Welfare) Cat Sanctuary, the only non-for-profit Cat Sanctuary in all of Belize! Come stay at Pause and experience our unique project, and know 100% of proceeds go straight back into P.A.W, and protecting our feline friends!

*Please note, this does mean we have friendly animals freely roaming the common areas within the property. The communal kitchen, toilets, showers, and all dorms/private rooms are closed off to them. If you are uncomfortable with and/or allergic to cats or dogs, this probably isn’t the place for you.

Pause is a family-run, eco-friendly, and non-smoking hostel that offers affordable seaside accommodation for backpackers, vacationers, and holiday-makers alike. Caye Caulker, located just off the northern coast of Belize, is a lovely 45 minute boat ride away from Belize City. The 5 mile long island is surrounded by clear blue and turquoise waters, full of fresh seafood, and the ideal scene to lay back, relax, and kick it, while listening to the sounds of reggae coming and going with the breeze .

Our property backs up onto our own private beach, one of the very few on the island, where you can take a kayak out to explore the sea, lounge on our double level dock, and enjoy spectacular sunsets every night. Cut down a coconut (and maybe throw a bit of local rum in?!), relax in a hammock and come hang out for a night or two at our island paradise!
