The San Pedro Town Council and the Liquor Licensing Board inform the general public of the sale of liquor on Good Friday as follows:

Only establishments holding a Restaurant Liquor License will be allowed to sell liquor during the day.

All other liquor establishments ARE NOT ALLOWED to sell liquor from Thursday Midnight 12:00a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Good Friday.

The cooperation of all the establishments is requested and appreciated. Failure to comply with this rule will result in the cancellation of their license.

Not being a very religious person I'm afraid this rule would make my Friday not that "Good".

San Pedro is a Roman Catholic community before anything else. This rule makes Friday a quiet place in San Pedro, Easter is huge and the loudest noise is the church bell.
All Belizeans take Easter as one of the biggest holidays of the year and just huge amounts of Belizeans from communities in New York and LA return in a Pilgrimage each year. Normal routines and schedules start falling apart about Thursday and wont begin again until Tuesday.
Its great business for everyone and good to see old friends.

I would think that many of the resort bars are open. Most all have resturants


Reality is only an illusion that occurs due to a lack of alcohol

Nothing is going to fly like that, Its a 'huge Roman catholic community' The mayor, the town board , the liquor licences board, literary every entity in government was born and raise Roman Catholic and easter is it for a roman catholic.
A little bit of an uphill battle I would say.

The law states that establishments with Restaurant Liquor License licenses will be able to serve liquor. Most major restaurants, resorts, and bars have a Publican Special, a different license all together. And yes laws do count. Only a foolish or brave bar owner would openly serve liquor on Good Friday. Buy ahead, have a BBQ, go slow...
