We have just returned from our first trip to Belize and we loved it! During this trip we saw Manatees, dolphins, Manta Ray, Eagle Ray, sharks, eels, howler monkeys, sea horse and much more!

Here are some pics:

click on the slideshow button to see it a little better.

Reviews - this is not being written to start a debate with those who disagree with my choices...I am doing this as a resource for other first timers.

Lodging & diving - we satyed at Sunbreeze and used their on site dive vendor, Aqua Dives. Both the hotel staff and the dive masters were extremely helpful and friendly. Moderately priced when bought as combo....located on ocean. Beautiful courtyard.


Rubys- This is my favorite brakfast place and I will miss it very much! Homemade cinnamon rolls, fruit bowls, Johnny cakes and more. Extremely affordable, good food and service....chairs on beach.

Celi's - we had lunch here and I like their screened patio with sand floor. I found the food to be exceptional! Prices are moderate, ocean view

El Patio - very good food and serice, moderate prices, but no ocean view

Caramba - extremely good food (jerk shrimp & coconut shrimp, good service, moderate price, no ocean view

Blue water Grill- Great location and ambiance, food and service are good, a bit pricey but wonderful ocean view

Wild Mangoes - I looked forward to dining here because so many people had good things to say about it. This was the biggest disappointment on our trip! The staff was too busy waiting on "people who knew the owner" and they totally ignored us. We talked to another couple who had the same thing happen the week before. The owner /chef was also preparing elaborate meals for these people. When I finally received my Mahi Mahi, it was the smallest serving I have ever seen in my lfe and it was very average in taste. The bottom line is if you know the owner, you will get good food and service, otherwise it is a very expensive gamble although it has a nice ocean view. I wish I could recommend this, but I cannot. I believe this has tremendous potential, but they have to get past these issues.

Fido's - this is a fun place for casual dining! Good food for lunch, reasonable, good service and great will enjoy it!

I hope this helps. San Pedro& Belize are wonderful places....go experience them!
