Just got back from the cay. It was marvelous! Great people all over.Thanks for advice to all on this board.iwould like to settle the question Is there a beach? Why do some people say no?
There is a mile long beach on the busy side East? which is covered with buildings. The Main Government built the sand but there is no local government smart enough to stop people from building hotels restaurants, setting up trinket stands, anything on the beach...what's left is doomed.
Don't know but they say the Mayor's Council who would be in charge of protecting public land has a big round building out on the public beach ,too.

Since you just returned, can you recommend any places to eat? We arrive April 26 and were curious.

We were there in Feb. My thoughts on where we ate.

Habaneros . Excellent and expensive
Wish Willy Surprisingly Good and inexpensive
Happy Lobster We like it for breakfast. Heard it was good for dinner.
Syd's Nice, cheap lunch. Sit at the patio out back. Didn't eat dinner there.
Herbal Tribe - Not special but I'd go back.

Several other place to check out too. We didn't eat at any of the barbecue places along Front St. but heard they were pretty good.

Hey there Windy... we arrive on Caulker on 4/25. This will be our second trip. Agree with prior post about both Habanero's and Herbal Tribe. Rainbow Grill was good for lunch - didn't try dinner. Did Glenda's for breakfast three times - my favorite thing was the huge bottle of fresh squeezed orange juice I bought there each morning! We had two great dinners at a place with an Asian name that I can't remember... and I don't have my journal with me right now.

I'm going to cast a dissenting vote on Rainbow. The setting is very nice. We thought the food was marginal last year and decided to not go back this year. We talked to other folks and they weren't thrilled this year. It must be up to individual tastes.

Windyw -

Where are you guys staying? We'll be at Seaside Cabanas 4/25, 26, 27 and 28. We're doing San Pedro before Caulker. Figured we'd save the relative calmness of Caulker for last... before we have to go home, boo hoo.

tparsons -

Is this your first trip? Since we are no longer Belize first-timers... just curious to hear impressions from someone elses first trip.

October last year was our introduction to Belize, and now that we're returning in "on" season it will be an interesting comparison for us. We so much enjoyed the lack of tourists (even tho we're obviously one of them). We did Cayo District plus Tikal, Ambergris and Caulker and had some places that were closed - but LOVED the experience.

We found out in February that Seaside has wonderful Pina Coladas. Especially at happy hour.

I just returned from the island and the best place for breakfast was inside the seaside. we also ate dinner there s few times it was pretty good. I don't eat fish or chicken but was told by my brother it was great.
