Caye Caulker’s Split and The Lazy Lizard: An Exclusive Update

Excerpt from Lily at Sunshine and Stilettos

The Split encapsulates the spirit of being in the Jewel. It’s not just a plot of land splitting the island in two, or just a sandy corner with a crowded, funky beach bar. It’s about “going slow”–Belizean time–by the sea, throwing back a couple of Belikins at sunset while the music thumps, splashing about in the water with family and making new friends among locals and tourists.

It’s one of the most fun outdoor gathering spots and bars I’ve experienced to date in the Caribbean–even after the British Virgin Islands, Jamaica or Grenada, and other similar island escapes I’ve explored over the past 10 years. The current beach at The Split isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, and the benches and setting are rustic. But the scenery, the people and the energy make it a good time. The Split is an experience. A Belizean experience.

So when I heard that physical changes were coming to my favorite island’s and Belize’s most famous spot–I was curious to find out about the new plans and the new management team taking over the hottest bar and sandy plot in Belize.

As fate would have it, our paths crossed in less than a week after I arrived last month, thanks to my good friend Stacy Badillo, who is a Caye Caulker native, a fierce enterpreneur who owns Purple Passion Beauty Studio and the dynamic Chairman of the Belize Tourism Industry Association’s branch on the island.

The new Split team has been forthcoming with me about their plans so I can accurately update MOON BELIZE. They also graciously answered my Belizean friends’ questions (born out of numerous, unfounded rumors swirling about the “new” Split), and listened to my humble Belize travel journalist-input about the culture here, Caye Caulker’s close community and the importance of The Split to the island and its residents first, then to Belizeans and to the country’s tourism. Of course, they were aware of it all and to my relief, in agreement.

General Manager James (“Jim”) Lynskey and his partners have 30 years of experience working in the hospitality, and food and beverage industries in the Caribbean and Central America. Jim moved to Nassau when he was just three years old, grew up in the Caribbean and has spent his years working in the area since the 1990s, from Costa Rica to Turks and Caicos.

Not surprisingly, Belize and The Split struck them as a unique spot in the region.

After speaking with the team, including meeting one-on-one, I was thrilled to learn of the positive changes coming to Caye Caulker’s and Belize’s magical corner.

The current Split and Lazy Lizard will officially change management hands as of November 1, 2014.

While wider renovations and a rebuilt Lazy Lizard are planned over the next six months–including a reclaimed wider, public beach–the first, smaller phase of changes will take place as early as next month.

Rather than close the area completely for months to rebuild the restaurant and build the seawall, the team has decided not to shut down for too long so near the start of the high season. Instead, the current Lazy Lizard Bar and Restaurant–which will retain its name–will undergo an initial facelift during a one-week close. As early as next month, customers will be able to return to enjoy The Split under new ownership (new menu and chef, among other changes) at least through the busy season, including the December holidays and the crowded peak-tourism months of January and February. New staff have already been hired–all of whom are from Caye Caulker–and they are ready to start next month.

So mark your calendars: The Split will re-open again on November 7!

There will be a reopening event–stay tuned for the link to The Split’s upcoming new Facebook Page, where they’ll share frequent updates.

On November 7, we’ll see the Lazy Lizard Bar and Restaurant with some upgrades and renovations– redecorating touches, as well as installations of a new kitchen, a new menu and new seating areas for customers. Eventually, the current Lazy Lizard will be taken down and rebuilt (with a similar look but with thatch roof and a sturdier structure).

Here’s more on the second phase of “bigger” changes coming gradually early 2015:

  • A reclaimed, wider, public beach for everyone to enjoy. The seawall near the entrance will be pushed out to 10 feet and a professionally engineered, permitted seawall will be reinstalled. There will be 10,000 square feet of beach to enjoy (starting on the right hand side of the entrance). There will also be more beach on the eastern side of the Split. The work will begin later in the season, but the team hopes for this beach part of the project to be completed around the end of March 2015.
  • A wooden deck up front, just as there is now, for those wishing to sun themselves towel-free or leap into the water.
  • A cleaned up and new swim out seating area (as there used to be beside the Lazy Lizard), with steps for families and kids to easily enter.
  • A brand new, rebuilt Lazy Lizard Bar and Restaurant–still in the wood and thatch design. The second level will include an open deck and a second bar. Beach bar foods will be served, but a real twist–while retaining the culinary taste of the island. Prices will cater to every budget. To quote GM Lynskey, the goal is not to be a “Four Seasons” at all, but to have really good beach side food, courtesy of a five-star chef with ten years of experience in Costa Rica, and who will train his staff.
  • Regular events at the Lazy Lizard, including monthly full moon parties and live music at dinner, with seafront picnic tables.
  • The Lizard Juice will remain (yes, I asked!)–it might still be green, but will have a different recipe (no complaints here).

When I asked GM Jim to give me the team’s final thoughts on the revamped Split, he emphasized that “the idea is is to create a true destination for Caye Caulker and Belize.” He added, that “[t]he Split is already a world class site and we just want to enhance the existing site, and take it to where it could be.”

The team also made it clear to me that the idea is to make improvements–the most exciting of which is the reclaimed, new and wider public beach–but to still have people come back and recognize where they are: The Split.

The Split at Caye Caulker: Closed as Of November 1st. What is Going On?

FACT: The 1.47 acre property called “The Split” has been for sale for a while. $2.7million US. A few months ago, large cement pylons were pounded into the ground around the property and talk began…

The property had been sold & a resort was being built on the property? A bridge to North Caye Caulker being built by a developer? The end of the Split as we know it? I wrote a post about the whole situation.

... ...

But the Lazy Lizard at the Split has been closed since the weekend. And there are RUMORS galore. Today Channel 5 and Channel 7 news (the two main Belize news channels) have been summoned to Caye Caulker for an update. And this is what I’m hearing. Let me put it in bullet points so I can keep it straight.

But first: NEW MANAGEMENT = Jim Lynsky working with the owner of the property. OLD MANAGEMENT = Immer Perez, Caye Caulker local and manager of the spot for the past 5 years?

... ...

SO today the Lazy Lizard at the Split is closed and locked. The news channels are on the island to get the story from Immer about what’s happening…and when this POPULAR bar will re-open and who will run it?

Lazy Lizard Will Close Due To Dispute

For the past 6 days, residents and visitors of Caye Caulker may have noticed that the Lazy Lizard Bar and Grill, at the Split has been closed.

And anyone who's been to Caye Caulker will know that it's not for a want of business. With all the traffic at the Split, the Lazy Lizard enjoys a constant flow of business.

But it's now closed, and no one can say for how long. That's because the bar owner, who is a lease-holder, is in a battle with the landowner. While they try to fight it out in court as to who's rights are being breeched, thousands of dollars in revenue is being lost daily.

So today, the bar owner decided to make his case to the media as to why his business is supposedly being ruined by the landowner.

Daniel Ortiz has the story:

Daniel Ortiz reporting
The Lazy Lizard, it's a well-known bar and grill at Caye Caulker's iconic destination, the Split.

For the past few days, however, it has been closed, and the proprietor is losing thousands of dollars. His eight employees have also been out of a job:

Immer Perez - Businessman, Lazy Lizard Bar & Grill
"Since this has been closed and the money that I have been making for the day - its slow season, but I never call myself slow in Caye Caulker in the Split especially right here the Lazy Lazard. Everyone comes here, and you are talking about $3,500 - $5,000 daily and on the weekends, more. All of these days that I am losing, I mentioned it to my lawyer and it must be placed to be paid as well because I am losing. I am losing and not only me, we have other families that works for me here as well; I have about 8 persons working here with me and if I am not open, they are losing."

It is currently closed because there is a dispute between Perez and the owner of the property which the bar sits on. The business relationship between Perez and the owner is complicated. Perez has been leasing the Lazy Lizard property, which is where he has been running his bar for the past 5 years. The owner has it on sale for 4+ million dollars, and he claims that he's gotten a buyer. He's trying to evict Perez from the property.

Immer Perez - Businessman, Lazy Lizard Bar & Grill
"The Split is known to the whole world as Split or Lazy Lizard, but it's under the name of Emerald Point in the Lands Department. I recently got a contract of 5 years; last year June 1st, for 5 years. So it's going to end on May 31st, 2018. Three days before Lobster Fest this year 2014, he told me and gave me the news saying that he sold the Split 99%. So I told him that this means that you got your 2.5 million US dollars that you were asking for and he just look at me and smile and shakes my hand and he said yeah and so that means that I am going to get back my money. The money that I invested here was $162,000 since November 1st, 2008 - 5 years now that I am here. The problem started when he told me that the place is sold, but then in August I got a letter of 90 days' notice that I must leave the premises of Emerald Point - that they already sold it. I got to know that the place is not sold. Emerald Point has a caution on it, so that caution means they cannot transfer or they cannot sell the property due to someone else that he had a previous deal with for obtaining the property. My contract that I have it states carefully that the property must be sold for I to get 90 days' notice. So when spoke to my lawyer and he send a power of attorney to the JP, he know what kind of contract I had. They breach the contract, so that's the reason why everything is going to be deal with the court and lawyers now. I have a 5 year contract lease that will end on May 31st, 2018."

No surprises there, business is business, and there is the Supreme Court to settle commercial disputes, especially breach of contract claims. The unusual circumstances of the Lazy Lizard dispute is that Perez caught agents of the landowner breaking into the business place, and removing $25,000 worth of his liquor and other goods. His attorney says that this is actionable criminal behavior, and he's pressing charges against the men.

Immer Perez
"These guys came; the JP (I am ashamed to say it), he personally came with these other guys, cutting my locks both from the front and back door and they broke the locks from inside out because I have deadbolt locks. The JP gives them instructions to go ahead and break the locks. I have 7 surveillance cameras inside the establishment. It seems that they notice that the cameras were there already caught them, so they remove the cameras from the original positions and they turn it up to the ceiling of the place and I obtained the footage and I gave it to the police officers for them for evidence that they personally came and cut my locks. I have pictures of the persons who came and cut my locks. I want them to pay for what they did. It's not fair. A Belizean is trying to step up his life to be a better business person and for them to come, especially for the two guys that came from Costa Rica who say that he is a general manager who have restaurants for over 15 years - coming and taking away my stuff - just grabbing my stuff from inside my establishment, taking it and putting it in another building that they already breaking down. It's just a shame to have people come and do that and especially the JP encourage them to do it."

Whatever the outcome of this dispute, this well-known Lazy Lizard proprietor will move on. He says that the relationship with his landlord has been tainted because this man tried to kick him out.

Immer Perez
"I want to get paid for the remaining of my contract time and the money that I invested here in the Lazy Lizard. You could see I have pictures about how this place use to look in 2008. November 2008 was the first time I paid them. If the law states that yes my contract is good and they breach it, I just want them to pay me the remaining of my contract and the money that I invested and I will move on, build my own new stuff. I will not stay here because you could never know what they would do; if a JP could come with other investors from Costa Rica coming here cutting my locks. Imagine what they would do if I still stay here in this place, maybe they would burn it, I do not know what they could do."

Daniel Ortiz
"The fact remains that the Split is a very commercially viable location. It is very well know both locally and abroad and your business benefits from that. You will lose that prime location spot."

Immer Perez
"Yes it is true, it's an icon spot for Caye Caulker. People sometimes do not come for the spot, they come for the service. The way you treat your customers, it's like in every business - there are demanding customers and you have to brake them. It's the same thing with all other business - you could flourish wherever you go if you have a good business knowledge."

We've been informed that the landowner is out of the country, and so today, we spoke with his attorney Naima Barrow. She told us that Immer Perez is wholly mistaken about what he thinks are his rights.

As you heard, a big part of Perez's explanation of why there has not been a sale is because there is a caution on the property. This means that land title can't transfer from one owner to another.

First, Barrow told us that Perez is mistaken, her client has sold the land, and the deal is finalized. When we asked about the caution, she told us that the transfer of title is not the only poof of at transaction. She says that her client will be able to show that the lease agreement has come to a close because of that sale.

As to the allegation that her client's agents behaved criminally when they broke into the Lazy Lizard and removed Perez's possessions, she says that her client's position is that they simply visited his property with his permission and removed his items to put them in storage. Barrow told us that her client's intention was to deliver them to wherever Perez had requested. She tells us that contrary to what Perez says, it was he - not her client's agents who were breaking and entering when he went into the Lazy Lizard, and to the storage area. When we asked about the push that Perez is making to get those agents charged, she said Perez will be hard pressed to prove that those persons were burglarizing anywhere, since they had permission.

Perez tells us that the land owner has entered a verbal contract with him and has promised to reimburse him for all investments to upgrade Lazy Lizard. He claims that he has spent over 160 thousand dollars, and he wants that investment back, along with earnings he would have made had he been allowed to complete his lease in 2018.

The Split at Caye Caulker Under Dispute

Caye Caulker is an island fast realizing its tourism potential, second only to the larger San Pedro but growing. Perhaps the main attraction for tourists on the island is an area known as the split, a natural division caused by Hurricane Hattie in 1961 and enhanced by dredging. It’s officially listed as Emerald Point, and this amazing piece of Belizean natural beauty is actually owned by an American, Dan Nichols. There is a bar and recreation area on Nichols’ land at the split which is rented by a Belizean, Immer Perez, and operated as the Lazy Lizard. And that’s where today’s story starts. Perez is being evicted by foreigners who claim that the property has been sold to them, but he contends that it hasn’t been sold, and his contract is valid until 2018. It’s become nasty, and the establishment has been closed down since November first. Mike Rudon headed to the split this morning and has the story.

Mike Rudon, Reporting

Since land issues are by nature complicated, we’ll try keeping this simple. This is the area under contention – the Lazy Lizard operated at the split and the land surrounding it. Immer Perez is the proprietor, and has been since 2008, on a contractual rental basis. His contract was recently renewed in 2013.

Immer Perez, Owner, Lazy Lizard

Immer Perez

“I have my contract right here with me stating right here when I get the contract – 2013 June first, and 2018, May thirty-first my contract is over.”

But owner Dan Nichols told Perez a few months ago that he had sold the Split, and that Perez would have to vacate the premises. Perez says that the property has not been sold, so his contract is being breached.

Immer Perez

“It says as well that the property has to be sold for me to get a ninety day notice and the property is not being sold…not being sold because it has a caution on it. The JP knows that what they are doing is wrong because he is the power of attorney for Dan Nichols’ properties here in Caye Caulker, and he should go over the contract and read it carefully.”

The JP Perez is referring to is Javier Novelo, who has power of attorney for owner Dan Nichols. On Monday, Novelo and some others who are allegedly the new operators at the Split broke into the Lazy Lizard and removed all Perez’s items from his bar and store-room.

Immer Perez

“On Monday, five minutes after twelve midday I was going to Belize City to have a meeting with my lawyer, and I took the twelve o’clock San Pedro Belize Express ferry, and not even five minutes after I took the ferry the JP and these other three guys that you can see on the cameras that I have, came in and broke my locks and took my stuff. You can see the JP just telling them go ahead with his finger, go ahead and break the locks. It’s a shame to say this…you have Belizeans trying to work hard to go up, to live a better life, and then you have foreigners who have just come here like these guys coming, breaking down these locks and saying that they have more balls than we Belizeans…something is wrong with them.”

The guy you see here in the surveillance video cutting the locks with a grinder and breaking into the establishment is Peter Schmidt, seen here on this picture. He is being helped by another man identified as Robert Cain. The Justice of the Peace, Javier Novelo, is also caught on video inside the establishment. That matter is in Police hands, since it is breaking and entering and a criminal charge. But let’s get back to the split – where Perez says he has invested nearly two hundred thousand dollars in the past few years.

Immer Perez

“This place was in a mess…a mess. The water in front, facing the east side or facing the reef was way up close to the big building. I had to put a seawall and refill it with my savings. I took my savings and I started to fix the place, the property, because every time we had a bad weather coming, a little tropical wave or tropical storm, it would erode more and more. On the east side of the property facing the reef I filled that up and put boulders in front of the sea wall and filled it up with sand. On the west-southwest of the property, I filled that up as well. And that took me two years now.”

Perez also built a new bathroom at a cost of twenty-five-thousand as well as a deck around the property where tourists can hang out and sunbathe or, as these locals and foreign visitors are doing, catch some snappers. We got the impression that Perez knows he’ll have to go eventually, but he wants it to be on what he says are fair terms.

Immer Perez

“What I want is to get paid for the rest of my contract and for the days that the business is closed, so my lawyer will deal with that for me with them, if they have any lawyer, or with the owner himself. The owner is supposed to be coming this month, I don’t know which date, but he is coming this month. That’s what he told me the other day when I spoke to him and he said he wants to negotiate.”

Charles Rubio Jr.

Charles Rubio Jr., Treasurer, Caye Caulker Tour Guide Association

“It is a shame, because I have known Immer for so many years running this place, and he actually saved my son’s life when my son was drowning a year and a half ago. And sometimes I pass here in my boat and he would be dumping loads and loads of sand in this place, putting in infrastructure, making it nice. This place wasn’t like this many years ago.”

Miriam Magoon

Miriam Magoon, Hair Braider

“He fill the whole place up, because the place wasn’t really nice for tourists to come lay down on the ground and stuff. He built the seawalls, made it nice and neat for people. He put the foundation so they can lay on and stuff. He is a nice guy, and I don’t want them to take away the split from him at all.”

Apart from the illegal breaking and entering, Perez’s liquor license was also revoked, since it is in the name of owner Dan Nichols. So the business is effectively closed, though Perez isn’t going anywhere just yet. Mike Rudon for News Five.

On the matter of the entry into Perez’s establishment, we confirmed with Police sources that those persons had no authority to do so and broke the law. Caye Caulker Police are awaiting instructions from the Coastal Executive Officer to arrest and charge those involved. Other than that, the fate of the beautiful piece of property known as the Split on Caye Caulker will be decided by attorneys.

Thanks Marty.
Simple version. Dan is American, his wife is Caye Caulker well known family.
They own the Split and rented the bar to Perry until it sold.
Upon sale lease is over.
Perry fixed it up to improve sales and says it moves a lot of money for him for five years.
Dan sold it but retains a piece of the future profit.
He still holds title. He has made several deals in the past with folks who had some setbacks and didn't succeed. He was glad he held title with them, too.

Perry says that it is only a sale if title changes hands. This is not true. His lawyer will tell him that and he will try to settle with Dan on the improvements

Same story with OJ. at the end of his lease of the bar.He took the seawall with him when Dan found the price unreasonable. Cops busted OJ because the seafront belongs to the GOB and you can't grab their stuff even if you paid for it.

Perry needs to sell Dan a lot of opened bottles of

The Belize "British Commonwealth Law" system has been bent and broken too many times to count.
However they do follow the law when convenient, no one knows for sure until it goes to court.
Excerpt from a case.....
Documents provided to us indicate that on 25th April, 2013 the Belize City Council got wind of a possible controversy with regards to the parcel of land and lodged a caution with the registrar of land. The caution prevents anyone from purchasing or taking any action with regards to the land without a hearing before the registrar of land.

Caye Caulker’s famous Lazy Lizard at the Split closed down

The iconic Lazy Lizard Bar and Grill at the Split on Caye Caulker is closed and its ownership is in dispute. The issue escalated last week when the lease-holder was forcefully and apparently illegally evicted along with all his belongings off the premises. The establishment, operated by Immer Perez, sits on an area that is internationally known, a naturally made split on the island caused by Hurricane Hattie in 1961.

The business has been closed for almost two weeks since the Lazy Lizard owner has been in a battle with the actual landowner, American, Dan Nichols. The area is known as The Split or Lazy Lizard, but it’s under the name of Emerald Point at the Lands Department. “I recently got a contract of 5 years; last year June 1st. So it’s valid up until May 31, 2018. Three days before Lobster Fest this year 2014, he (the owner) told me and gave me the news saying that he sold the Split – 99% of the place,” explained Perez, who said that since then everything has been downhill. He told the media during an interview that the problem started in August when he got a 90-day notice that he must leave the premises on Emerald Point because it was sold. Perez explained that after doing his research, he realized that the land could not have been sold. “I got to know that the place is not sold. Emerald Point has a caution on it, so that caution means they cannot transfer-they cannot sell the property due to someone else that he had a previous deal with for obtaining the property. My contract that I have states carefully that the property must be sold for me to get 90 days’ notice,” he explained

Update on The Split and Lazy Lizard Bar on Caye Caulker: All Is Not Perfect in Paradise

Here is what I hear: today the owners had the electrical lines and meter removed from the Lazy Lizard.

And allegedly, the Caye Caulker Village Council has denied a new liquor license without a written letter from the land owner.

But isn’t that what the original five year lease was about?

The saga continues!

Let’s HOPE this is resolved amicably (is that even possible now?) by Christmas and New Years! So that our beloved Lazy Lizard can re-open serving Belikins…just like it should be.

BUT UNTIL THEN, the Lizard and the Split are open for business. Food and non-alcoholic drinks are available for purchase…and there are more than a few places to buy some cold beers in the area.

Six charged as part of Lazy Lizard Land Dispute

Caye Caulker Police have arrested and charged five persons for the crime of “Burglary” and one person for the crime of “Damage to Property” pertaining to the land dispute of the iconic Lazy Lizard Bar and Grill located on the split at Caye Caulker. 38-year-old owner of Lazy Lizard and five-year leaseholder of the land Immer Perez has been in court proceedings since early November 2014 after he was illegally evicted from the property. During the proceedings, the Lazy Lizard was broken into, with thousands of dollars in inventory stolen.

Perez reported to police that on Monday, November 3rd between 1:30PM and 3:45PM his business was broken into. Stolen from the bar were an assortment of alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, vegetables and other food items, all mounting to $26,600.75BZ. Surveillance cameras at the establishment captured the crime and a police investigation commenced. The missing items were later found in a nearby abandoned building. Perez stated to the police that his lease on the property did not terminate until May 21, 2018 and as such he had not given anyone permission to remove any items from the establishment.

On Thursday, December 4th, police officially arrested 46-year-old Javier Novelo, 30-year-old Robert Cain, 51-year-old James Lynskey, and 35-year-old Peter Shmidt for the burglary at Lazy Lizard. All four men were brought to the San Pedro Police Station on Friday, December 5th, where they were each charged for “Burglary”.

Charges were also made on 35-year-old Leonard Nelson Nuñez, who had damaged three surveillance cameras at Lazy Lizard. Perez had reported that between Thursday, November 27th and Friday, November 28th Lazy Lizard Bar and Grill’s surveillance cameras #5, #12 and #13 were vandalized. After reviewing the surveillance video, the culprit was identified, arrested and formally charged for Damage to Property.

Update On Caye Caulker’s Lazy Lizard at the Split – Land Dispute Continues

Early today I was sent this document that shows that POWER has been ordered back on. Officially as of December 12th. Utilities must be provided.

As of this morning? Still no power.

I received this information from someone associated with the current lease holders at the Lazy Lizard.

So the ongoing dispute continues and Immer Perez applied for a liquor license to continue operating the Lazy Lizard bar. On the 28th of November, Mr. Perez says that he was denied by the Caye Caulker Village Council due to the fact that there were noise complaints and that the land owner no long wants alcohol sold on his property. A letter of appeal has been made and it’s being investigated.

Despite being cited for noise and liquor sales, “The Split” has been given a liquor license until 2am for tonight – a charity event.
