Suggestions for San Pedro, Ambergris Caye
Please note that most restaurants usually pick one day a week to close, so it is best to check before hand and if you are also able to make reservations I would highly suggest that. There are always new restaurants opening too, so please check with your resort to hear the latest.
Bars: There are a ton of fun beach bars in San Pedro. To name a few, in town you will find Sunset Lounge located on the roof top of the San Cas Building right across the street from Tropic Air, Fido’s, Wahoo's Lounge, and the bar at Blue Water Grill. There are also some over-the-water bars in town that include Hurricane’s Ceviche Bar, The Palapa Bar, Loser’s, and Wayo’s (these last three are located along the Boca del Rio beach area. You will also find Sandy Toes and Nauti Crab on the Boca del Rio beach. Nauti Crab is known for their crab races and is the former Crazy Canuck’s – new name and new location. Heading north you will find Croc’s, The Dive Bar, Coco Loco’s, and the rooftop bar at Rain Restaurant. Over-The-Water bars in this area include 303 Belize, The Ugly Duckling, and Rum Dog. “Secret Beach” has a couple of bars and restaurants, which includes an over-the-water bar, Blue Bayou. Ask anyone for directions to Secret Beach. Long golf cart ride, but a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Getting Supplies:*Wines de Vine – For great wines/cheese. They have daily tastings. They are opened Monday thru Saturday 9:00 am – 8:00 pm. Closed on Sunday.*Beer, Water & Soda by the case - can get it by the case at the distributorship (M-F from 8-5 and Sat 8-12).*Groceries – Greenhouse (great store with produce, meats, seafood, and groceries) and Super Buy South (meaning the south location) or Super Buy in town – great large store spanning both “Middle” Street and “Back” Street. For not much more than the distributorship you can get cases of beer, water, etc. at Super Buy.*If you choose to shop elsewhere be sure and check all expiration dates, and be sure you watch closely as you are being rung up. I have heard of some dishonest activity at other places. Super Buy would be safe for things you cannot find at Greenhouse, but Greenhouse will have the best for fresh produce, etc.*Bakery – The Baker. Located right across the street from Super Buy (the south location).
Other Suggestions:*Wahoo’s Lounge – Chicken Drop - Every Thursday evening. Best idea is to try and get to Caliente early and get a table on the veranda looking down onto the “drop area”.*Food Tour – Eat Like A Local. Call 615-1321 or e-mail email@example.com *ACES (American Crocodile Education Sanctuary) – night croc tours, 631-6366 *Green Iguana Sanctuary – Call 670-8288 for a tour. *Stroll along in town and visit all the shops and galleries. There are some good galleries & shops located inside where Fido’s is.*DandE’s Frozen Custard – Yum, Yum. Located on Pescador Drive (aka “Middle Street”)*Rent a golf cart or bicycle for a day to explore the island – going up north across the bridge and also go all the way south of the island on nice sandy beach roads. Can stop at various places along the way for drinks.*Take the water taxi and spend a day on the island next door – Caye Caulker. Great fun.
