Our most recent travels around the island took us to Spice It Up, a cozy little beachside restaurant located on the very scenic Boca Del Rio seaside.

The place is cool, calm and relaxing and offers a great view of the Caribbean sea, and the locals and visitors that amble by. Owner of Spice It Up, Segret Young, takes pride in her restaurant and offers her customers a first-hand experience of that famous Belizean hospitality we hear so much about.

Once there, grab a seat on the deck or under the tent and order up a cold one as you pursue the menu. With a complete bar menu including everything from fresh juices, to cold beers and blended cocktails, there is something for everyone, so yes- you can bring out the kiddos for a fun family meal.

For me, Whole Curry Fish and for Dennis the “picky eater,” the Creamy Coconut Chicken. These both come with sides of your choice: rice and beans or white rice and a side salad (yummy)!
