I'm a (young) 62 y.o. woman traveling solo to Belize over the holidays. Any suggestions on where would be good places, (activities, bars, restaurants) to hang out and meet people? Not looking to date, just socialize while I'm there. On Ambergris Caye from 12/31/17 through 1/6/18. Thanks!

We also now have some good cafes. Lavish Habits on front street is popular and Flight Cafe near Tropic Air.
At night Fidos is wild and loud (not much chating).

There are wine and cheese socials a couple of nights a week at Wine de Vine. In town - just south of Ramon's. A very popular venue with excellent wine by the glass.
In Tres Cocos (1/2 mile north of the bridge) at Marbuck's there is a lovely social mixer from 4:30 - 8 PM on Thursday's called Wine Down. Go early when the sun is still up! Nice people, soft music, complimentary snacks - a chance to actually talk with people in a very nice outdoor setting.
Trivia Night at Truck Stop (which is right around the corner from Marbucks) is a perfect way to meet and interact with people (also on Thursdays). This starts around 7:30. Movie night at Truck Stop is a lot of fun too (wednesdays), and Sunday is a blast with bar-b-q and other interactive activities.
Since you will be here for New Year's Eve, you should plan on the countdown in Central Park. Starts "whenever" but with the serious party beginning at 10 PM. Music, dancing, huge display of fireworks at midnight. The party goes on til morning but I'd recommend avoiding the madness that ensues after too much drinking.

Thanks so much Diane....tons of great info. Do you know if there is any availability (blog, chat) to meet people a little prior to any of the events so one can join in with a "little group" ahead of time instead of just showing up and hoping you meet people that aren't on a hot date or something? :-)

In my experience, I don't think there are too many 'hot dates' here in Belize, and especially on the island. Just about everyone is welcoming and open to conversation. I traveled here solo for 10 years before finally buying my own place, and never once had any struggles with meeting tons of people, and striking up conversations anywhere I went, including the grocery store. I think you'll find the reason so many people fall in love with Belize, is the warmth and openness of the people. Just come hang out, and you'll have a blast. There are no strangers here. :-)

Crazy Canucks south of town on Tues nights for Crab Races and Sundays for Live Music. Palapa Bar and Wayos both good spots. People are generally friendly here. There will be several great NYE parties this year: Crocs Sunset, Palapa, Central Park, Palapa Bar and Canucks to name a few. You can scope them out ahead of time and see which appeals to you - they will all be fun in their own way.
