First trip to AC in one week. We're so excited. Any regular on this board is due a round on us for helping in our trip planning. We'll be at B.S. 9/15-20 -- plan on spending plenty of time in town.

I have been to Belize 10 times since 1998. I hope this helps. Have a wonderful time.

Things to do on Ambergris Caye (Island)

Walk to both ends of the island by beach and/or by road.

Get a local paper at the supermarket, check at night life and local entertainment.
Many Resorts have live bands or singers on different nights.

Wednesdays:

1. Mickey’s has lunch special, starting at 11:00 on burritos for $5. You get a huge burrito, either chicken, beef or combination. Don’t be late, they’ve been known to run out.

2.World’s Famous Chicken Drop at 4:30 Pier Lounge on Front Street

3.Also, BBQ Beach Party at Celi’s next to Holiday Hotel

Local Night Clubs:
Fido’s
Big Daddy’s
Barefoot Iguana
Jaquars Temple

Casino: Palace Casino (NOT like Las Vegas)

Rent a golf cart, go to north side of island over the cut. Take the man pulled barge. There is a charge of $5 ( I think). Have lunch at “Sweet Basil”. Get back before dark as the barge over the cut stops running.
Rent golf cart and drive to the south end of the island and to the lagoon. Just avoid anyone offering to sell you anything illegal.

Take a water taxi to Captain Morgan’s or Capricorn for a romantic dinner. Call for reservations and they will send water taxi to BYC pier.

THINGS OF INTEREST:

Ask locals where to see the 8-10 foot Crocodile in the lake.
Walk to the back of island and see Lagoon
“Pizano “: Old man about town, who came to San Pedro as a millionaire and lost everything on drugs. Now he roams the beach selling Conch Shells.
Cemetery, like no other Cemetery you’ve ever seen.
Rubbermaid/ Tupperware man
Two man operated Barge at the cut.
Talking parrots across the street from Belize Yacht Club

MUST TOURS:

Shark Alley, Hol Chan Park, Mexico Rocks with lunch stops at either Caye Caulker (fishing village smaller than Ambergris Caye or Goff Caye (deserted island).

You could go out on the Reef Runner, the glass bottom boat

Ancient Mayan Ruins “Altun Ha” with a stop at Maruba Jungle Spa for lunch and a dip in the pool to cool off.

PLACES TO EAT:
Try to EAT Caribbean or Belizean food. You’re not in Kansas anymore.
Try the conch ceveche (salsa), red snapper, coconut shrimp, & of course the lobster.

Inexpensive:
La Popular Bakery on Buccaneer St. (side street near Southwinds Realtor)
Master Lee’s Take out on Buccaneer St across from bakery
½ Fried Chicken with fries for $5.00 BZ Also Chinese for about $7.50 (enough for 2)
Mickey’s on Middle St.
George’s Kitchen across from Woody’s (Great Breakfasts) George is the chef, his wife, Maria is the waitress.
Reef Restaurant on Middle St.

Medium to High end:
Front Street: Celi's, Fido's, Wet Willies

Middle St: Elivi's, Cocina Caramba, el Patio

Coconut Drive: Jade Garden, Victoria House, Ramon's, Banana Beach

When you go back for your second trip spend a few days in the jungle along the Mecal River at Black Rock Jungle Lodge. You can horseback ride, hike, canoe, or go tubing in caves. At night you can hear the howling monkeys in the jungle.

I know you will enjoy yourself. Have Fun.

yes - Belizean Shores. Looking forward to equal parts night life in town and quiet around the pool/beach -- maybe some Lamanai or cave tubing thrown in. If there's anything this board taught me, it's to not plan too much....

Sweet Basil's is closed; Master Lee's is closed; so take them off your list! And the bakery has a different name which I can't remember at the moment.
