Big Boats at the Belize Yacht Club, The New Holiday Hotel and Some Changes in Town

I haven't been into San Pedro town in a least not since I returned from my trip to Mexico. Yesterday, we took a walk and passed the Belize Yacht Club. About 8 BIG boats are parked along the dock and their crews were furiously swabbing the decks.

A crew member said that all the boats (except the one from Long Island) were owned by Guatemalans, that they are in Belize for Easter and that they are headed down to the Rio Dulce.

In town, I passed the new Holiday Hotel patio and bar. It was closed for a number of weeks for remodeling and it looks like an entirely new place. Lots of lounge chairs, a huge covered deck with nice dark wood furniture...I think it is going to be a huge hit.

There is even a stone wall/water feature. Pretty swanky. Pretty cool.

The Baker has relocated out of this huge Front Street store; a Lebanese mini-market quickly moved in. How are these guy affording this astronomical rent???

Daddy Rocks (the old Big Daddy' of the first bars on the island over 40 years ago) is covered in zebra stripes.


A large group of Belize Coast Guard guys were out on the municipal pier. I think all were here for yesterday's incredibly sad rescue effort at Hol Chan.

Still farther up north (across from Mathieu's Deli) is a new business: Geo's Hideaway Cafe & Meat Market. Interesting...


I'll keep you guys informed about all of the Easter is a HUGE party weekend here in San Pedro.

All of the boats were gone yesterday afternoon...easy come, easy go. Or maybe they were just out for the day?

Probably on their way down to Rio Dulce for Easter?
