Things to do on Ambergris Caye (Island)

Walk to both ends of the island by beach and/or by road.

Get a local paper at the supermarket, check at night life and local entertainment.

Many Resorts have live bands or singers on different nights.



Wednesday: Mickey’s has lunch special, starting at 11:00 on burritos for $5. you get a huge burrito, either chicken, beef or combination. Don’t be late, they’ve been known to run out.

World’s Famous Chicken Drop at 4:30 Pier Lounge on Front Street
Also, BBQ Beach Party at Celi’s next to Holiday Hotel

Local Night Clubs:

Fido’s
Big Daddy’s
Barefoot Iguana
Jaquars Temple



Casino: Palace Casino (NOT like Vegas)

Rent a golf cart, go to north side of island over the cut. Take the man pulled barge. There is a charge of $5 ( I think). Have lunch at “Sweet Basil”. Get back before dark. I think thry built a bridge this summer.

Rent golf cart and drive to the south end of the island and to the lagoon. Just avoid anyone offering to sell you anything illegal.

Take a water taxi to Captain Morgan’s or Capricorn for a romantic dinner. Call for reservations and they will send water taxi to BYC pier.

THINGS OF INTEREST:

Ask locals where to see the 8-10 foot Crocodile in the lake.

Walk to the back of island and see Lagoon

“Pizano “: Old man about town, who came to San Pedro as a millionaire and loss everything on drugs. Now he roams the beach selling Conch Shells.

Cemetery, like no other Cemetery you’ve ever seen.

Rubbermaid/ Tupperware man

Two man operated Barge at the cut.(I think there's a bridge now)

Talking parrots across the street from Belize Yact Club

MUST TOURS:

Shark Alley, Hol Chan Park, Mexico Rocks with lunch stops at either Caye Caulker (fishing village smaller than Ambergris Caye or Goff Caye (deserted island).

You could go out on the Reef Runner, the glass bottom boat

Ancient Mayan Ruins “Altun Ha” with a stop at Maruba Jungle Spa for lunch and a dip in the pool to cool off.

Master Lee’s Take out on Buccaneer St across from bakery. ½ Fried Chicken with fries for $5.00 BZ Also Chinese for about $7.50 (enough for 2)

I SECOND THE REEF RESTRAUNT, WONDERFUL FOOD, EXCELLENT PRICES!

and for excellent chinese take out I second the Restraunt around the corner from the post office across from the bakery. It does not say "Master Lee's" outside so look for a yellow wall outside and a sign that says "King Fu" or "Kong Fu" or "Kang Fu" it is right next to Geovani's.

I have read about Amigos Del Mar. We are staying at Belizean Shores, so that won't be any problem? Any dives sites in particular?
THANKS!

Caicos -- Got back from B.S. 3 weeks ago -- you'll love it. When going into town, try to hitch rides from the resort boat that usually goes into town at 11:00 -- you'll avoid some taxi fare that way.

have fun and tell Leo at the pool bar to fix you a "special" Pina Colada like he did for the Ohio folks a couple weeks ago.


I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.
