Hi
I'll be staying in AC at Victoria House May 3-8 on my honeymoon.
I know AC is mainly very casual, but are there any restaurants for which you have to dress a little nicer? And are these places that you guys would recommend and are they expensive? We're definitely looking forward to being very low-key the whole time, but it would be nice to go out for a "nice" dinner one night.
Thanks
Jess

There is a beautiful restaurant right at Victoria House. Still, all you will need is a nice sundress and some sandals. That will be dressed up.

Another wonderful restaurant is Capricorn which is a boat ride to the north side of the Caye, but the food is wonderful. Also the new restaurant at Banana Beach is not to be missed.
I agree, just a sundress and sandals is about as dressy as it gets!

Have a great time!

Nice, but relaxing: Casa Picasso in San Pablo and Capricorn Resort north of the river cut (nice boat ride under the stars); via "Goods & Services" above you can see their sites; you could E-mail Casa Picasso for prices (their "Cracked Coconut" dessert is great)

Happy honeymoon and marriage...

You can be barefoot anywhere you want to go, including the upscale places, but sandals work, too. Capricorn is a beautiful trip on a starry night. Went there on my birthday this year. They will arrange to pick you up at your closest dock, of course for a fee, but its a neat trip.

many have asked this, and this is the general concensus, from what i gather.

men: they dont seem to care much; shorts & shirt suit them fine.

women: while shorts & tanks are the general MO, most girls like to take a few breezy, blowy skirts or sundresses for nights out. or cute minis. not a requirement, but esp on your homeymoon, a girl likes to feel pretty & sexy. all are fine barefoot. no heels ever. they just dont mix in sand.

rendezvous is also a nice french-thai restaruant on a beautiful, romantic beach. gotta take a boat to get there. i suggest eat cheap breakfast & lunch (try papi's or mickey's), treat yourselves on some nice dinners. you only live once, and only have one honeymoon together. go for it!

You can buy one of those pretty island dresses at Isla Bonita, heading slightly north in town, about a block before Paradise Resort Hotel. They'll measure you, you pick out the fabric and style you want, and there you are. I got a beauty for $50US.

Isla Bonita was great last year, my friend Wendy and I both got their wrap pants and halter tops. They measure them to fit you and will make the alterations right there within a day. You can also pick a fabric and they will make the stuff right from that as well for shorts, pants, skirts and such. I got a ton of compliments on the outfit I got from there last year so plan on going back there and getting something else made this time around too. It is across the street from Fidos tucked back behind that Reef bar (from what I recall)

For my packing list this year, I am taking mostly swimsuits and cover-ups for the day time (those surf shorts come in handy too) and sundresses and little minis and tank tops for the evening. I barely wore any of the shorts and regular t-shirts I took last year as I lived in the stuff I just mentioned.

The shop has moved now but still on the same street about a block north. Maybe Kaycee can give you better directions.
