What's your budget for lodging , Clover? I've stayed at the Sea Front Inn a couple of times. I think it was around 75US for a double. The rooms all have different themes (ie: conch room, seahorse etc) kind of cool. One thing I love about it is the water pressure in the showers!! After traveling around a few days and the long road down to PG, the shower there is amazing. Nice views and hammocks on the balconies, good breakfasts. A lot of people(tourists, expats etc) eat at Emory's.. outside dining under a large palapa roof. Open air market in the mornings, I think Mon, Wed, Fri and Sat, by the clock tower in the town is nice to walk around. Went to the PG Sports Bar in the evening..good entertainment , lots of memorabilia and interesting decor. Seemed to be many tours to take that sounded interesting..was mostly visiting and didnt do that stuff, but would like to on a future visit.
When ya going? Have fun..I enjoy PG, hope you do.

Right behind the Seafront is a vegetarian resturaunt that is small but has great food. And if you go up front street past the market by several blocks is an east Indian resturaunt, excellent food as well. I second the Sea Front Inn. Larry and Karol will treat you right, and their son in law Roberto does tours to the local cayes and fishing if you are into it.

There are several wonderful new places open in PG. Coral House Inn is about the same price, or a little less, than the Sea Front Inn and even has a swimming pool. The hosts, an expat U.S. couple, are great, and there's even wireless internet.

About a mile from PG is another new place, Hickatee Cottages, three lovely cottages in a natural setting run by an English couple.

A few blocks up from Seafront Inn is the new Beya Suites, a Belizean-owned place.

If you're looking for something cheaper, around $30, Tate's Guesthouse is still a good choice.

I still think that Emery Restaurant has the best food in PG. It was closed for awhile but has reopened. There's also a new place down from Coral House Inn, on the water, called ... well, I forget what it's called, Barbara's Seaside or something like that. They only have one or two dishes, but the owner is a good cook. There's also a good Chinese place next to the ice cream shop. Grace's is a good place for breakfast.

El Pescador PG is terrific, though not cheap.
