I'm new to this board and hope to garner alot of info before our trip the first week in November!

Can anyone steer us to some safe nightspots in San Pedro where we can listen to music & enjoy a few libations?? My husband and I like music and would like to visit a few local spots.

Also, shopping - any suggestions for a special remembrance of our trip? We are celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary with this trip.

We are staying at Cayo Espanto and will be visiting San Pedro a few times I'm sure.

Any help is appreciated.

Check out for shopping:

1. Black coral jewelry made in San Pedro (Cottage Gift Shop for one) - they can probably create something special for you.

2. Paintings by local artists - there are 4 or so galleries in town: Fido's courtyard, south end of middle street, middle part of middle street, Sunbreeze Hotel. Local, wonderful artists: Marcos, Orlando, Walter Castillo and others.

Also, recommend you ask your Cayo Espanto hosts for special ideas. You'll love the service at Espanto. Happy anniversary!

Try Fido's for both music/drinks as well as great custom made jewelry by Elisabeth at Ambar (located inside Fido's courtyard)

The Casino is very small. They have a varity of tables and slots. I only went in to look around when it was new, not to gamble so I really can't tell you about whether it woud "pay" to play.
We arrive 11-8-03. YEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!

Personally I love Palace Casino, nice friendly staff, fun, and you will meet alot of locals for chatting. I only play the slots, and win enough to keep me playing.

Shops mentioned above are all great.

Ramon's gift shop has a wide variety of really nice things.

If you get over to Caye Caulker, go to SilkPainter's Art shop, great selections.

On Pescador in San Pedro, The Beauty of Nature Gift Shop, great colorful art, including wooden chairs and tables, that are easily carried home.

I've had a lot of fun at the Palace Casino.

Has the new casino opened yet?
