Celebrating NYE downtown San Pedro Style
Some years it is a case of the older we get the more it changes how we celebrate :) We started out planning to go to the big NYE party at Lola’s and do town, as the day got closer, decided for something more low key like the party down south at Lone Star or dinner at Black Orchid Restaurant. By the time tacoboy got home from work at 7:30 and I could tell that even though he was still willing to get cleaned up and go out on a date, he was feeling tired and over socialized from work.
I was still working and messaging back and forth with Matt about how their plans for the night were shaping up after their dinner at Caprice. Part of me wanted to go meet them in town for the party but decided on a quiet night at home watching tv. It was totally what I needed and I was asleep by 10:00pm or so not long after tacoboy :)
The rapid machine gun fire of neighborhood firecrackers woke me up just in time to catch the fireworks display in town, we get a partial view from our house. As I stood there watching the colorful fireworks, I thought even though I was missing a good party and most of our friends were there, I was glad I opted out of the party this year.

New Year’s Eve 2013 – 2014 in San Pedro: Belize Style
Clearly New Year’s Eve is a massive party around the world. And San Pedro, Belize is a party town. There is something going on pretty much every night of the year. So on New Year’s Eve, things need to be turned up just a bit. They need to be cranked to eleven if you know what I mean.
You really didn’t have to go far to find the next party. They walked passed the Lions’ Den (the party that really doesn’t get going until the wee hours of the morning)…
Lola’s Pub (THE place to watch sports in San Pedro) was the expat party hub. They had a full block party set up. I’d been there earlier in the day…

“All Night Long (All Night)” in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.
This has got to be the busiest week of the year for the restaurants, bars and hotels and being in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye to see in and celebrate the beginning of a new year is the primary reason for the high level of bookings and increased level of tourism spending. Oh, and by many of those that live here too!
So, although It’s not my usual type of ‘gig’ I thought that some of you might like to see some photos of how New Year’s Eve was celebrated and Rose and I chose Lola’s Pub in Barrier Reef Drive for this.
We went to the inaugural block party for last New Year’s Eve and it was good, really good but this year Steve Jacobson, owner of Lola’s Pub, surpassed it. And by some.
We arrived around 21.15 hours and the area in front of the bar was already busy and the street was throbbing with the sounds of The Cover-Ups who were playing in front of the Belize Bank.
