Milo's on right. Things were so peaceful and quiet you could see that post by Milos Hotel all the way from Central Park. This was the very end of town. Beyond Paradise Hotel there was nothing but bush. There was a gift shop (Toucan Gift Shop) about where this picture was taken from and apart from the hotel with the cabanas this was pretty much the end of the town.

Iguana Jack
It was in 1975 that John D. Westerhold's (Iguana Jack) adventures landed him in Belize. Jack quickly found a beautiful country and people that were so creatively inspiring that he has called it home ever since. As he sketched and painted some of his favorite people and places, Jack established the very first art gallery in San Pedro in 1980 to display his finest works. Today as Belize continues to change,Jack is still very busy painting and sculpting images of the Belize he loves to call home.
Milo's store, 1975

Milo's opened a little restaurant next to their store and his home. And for while the only thing on the menu was a egg salad sandwich. One day I went to have lunch and there was a handwritten sign on the door that said closed for their lunch break.

For a long time Milo Pazís property used to be the end of the village on the northern end. It was so until Paradise Hotel was opened just past Miloís and then the village simply expanded and blossomed all the way up north. First there was Miloís Hotel with the cemetery directly in front of it. Then there was Miloís Store. And which child in the 1980ís doesnít remember with fondness the Arcade Games that attracted hundreds of children at Miloís place. Indeed Miloís place has undergone a lot of transformation as was the time when they were hosts to the famous Sandalís Pub. Then there was Miloís Ice- all of which has always been with the very professional and hospitable service of its proprietors Milo Paz Sr. and Mrs. Velie Paz. It can be said with much certainty that even though it was the end of the village, Miloís Place has always been a very popular place for this island, town and community.
