Where can I buy really fresh fish in Ambergris Caye? I'm looking for fresh-caught snapper, etc. and if possible lobster and/or conch. Thanks!

I would check down by the old football field at the lagoon that is a good spot to get fresh fish if people are out selling. You can find fruit and vegetables there too.

One of the fishermen sells his catch at El Dorado store on Middle Street (next door to Lino's). Have had great Hog Snapper from him.

we always thought it was odd we couldnt readily buy fresh fish there.

we did buy a bag of mystery filets from a fisherman next to sunset grill for US$4. whatever they were they were very good. smile is that the same place you meant too, tg?

Yup same place likely Jane.

Sometimes you can get lucky and find some walking the beach but not as often.

There is also a store on back street as well if you are coming up from the lagoon and make a left onto back street I think it is the first store on the right.Dick bought fish there once when we were on an errand run and it was due to a fisherman telling him he sold fresh to them.

Affordable family friendly environment for locals and visiters to enjoy!
