Scratching the Surface on Easter Saturday: Lion's Den, The Hotel, Palapa Bar and Dancing to Sinkronia at Wet Willy's
Yesterday, Easter Saturday, might have been the most happening day of the year in a town where something is always happening. There were tons of beach parties, DJs, visiting performers, bands, fundraisers...with all of these choices...where does one begin? The choice was easy. The Pancake Breakfast at the Lion's Den. Plus, it was my only chance to see the Easter Bunny.
We walked over the bridge to the Hotel where they were having a fundraiser for the kids' sailing club. Walter Castillo had an art show set up in the lobby.
Next stop? Palapa Bar. We continued our walk up the beach...a very pretty 10 minutes or so. It is impossible to take a bad picture at the Palapa Bar on a nice day. It's like a movie set.
Palapa Bar phoned the Coastal Express ferry for us so we could ride back to town. Enough walking for one day. A quick dip in the WARM sea was a must...
And we caught the boat. The beach all thru town was PACKED. People drinking, eating, swimming, dancing. Visitors from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador...Belizeans from Belize City and the mainland...tourists. It's a fun, fun time (if you don't mind lots of people and loud music). I, personally, love Easter weekend!
Time for some dinner and off to the next stop. Wet Willy's for some salsa...cumbia...merengue...Latin music. The bar has some new owners and they are doing a bit of a rehab. Starting with a new paint job. The pier looks great.
The band from El Salvador was HUGE. Three singers, a full band and some butt cheek baring dancers.
The dance floor was packed when we left at about 2am.
ONE MORE STOP! Park food - bacon wrapped hot dogs with the works. Mayo, mustard, ketchup, grilled onion, cheese and bacon wrap. So so tasty at 2am and only $4bzd.
Central Park was packed with people and the lines were long at Daddy Rock's and Jaguar's. At 2am!
