We stayed at Banana Beach which is a perfect walk to town. (About 1/2 hour). Besides making the odd dinners in, we ate at the street vendors as well as restaurants. I can honestly say we did not have a bad meal the whole time. While a couple were nothing special (probably what I ordered), they certainly were fine.
My favourites include: Papi's Diner, Jambel Jerk Pit, Caliente's (ginger rum shrimp-yum), and the little Vegetarian place inside the Bamboo Store on Coconut Drive (just down from Banyan Bay). A good leafy salad was a bit of a challenge to find, but this vegetarian place was awesome for lunch. Great grilled eggplant sandwiches (if you like that kind of thing).
We rented a golf cart a couple of times....once to check out the island and go across the cut to the north end, and the second time to go on a "pub crawl" with some new friends.
While all the snorkle guides are very professional and really know and love what they do, I really enjoyed my adventure with Alfonse Graniel. He has a real passion for what he does and the sea life really respond to him. Other travellers had expressed their disappointment of not seeing sharks at Shark Ray Alley....we were fortunate to have been in the water with three sharks and five rays.
We took a day trip over to Caye Caulker, did a bit of shopping, had lunch, and hit the Lazy Lizard bar at the "end" of the road. Saw a spotted eagle ray leap out of the water.
Of course we had to place our bets at the Chicken Drop one Wednesday night. Alas, we did not win but it was fun trying!
If you have never tried para-sailing, I would highly recommend it with the outfit that go from Fido's dock. You launch from the boat and return to the boat. It was my first time and it was anything but scary.
We had some really fun "party" nights at the Crazy Canucks bar. They have live music three times a week, and Rick the bartender is a great guy. You may even win the limbo contest!
And you have to go and see Satan (crocodile extraordinaire)......he lives in the pond down by the water tower just south of Victoria House.
Bring bug spray. If there is no breeze, the no see-ums and/or mosquitoes may decide to have dinner at your expense.
