Just curious, are you coming for Kelly McGuire's birthday bash? If so, it's always lots of fun.

Pelican Reef is about three miles south of town. You will want a golf cart.

Here's a link, not sure how current it is. I know the first two listed are in business and well thought of:

Buy your beer at the distributor to save some dollars. Used to be just south of the airstrip, now, I think you have to go to the one further south. Ask for directions, it isn't hard to find, but, I don't know any street names....

Not much in the way of bars that far south. There's a pool bar where you're staying. Also, a pool bar a few resorts north at Athens Gate.

Further north, there's the Squirrel's Nest at Mata Rocks, Catamaran Bar at Caribbean Villas, Crazy Canuck's at Exotic Caye.

Close to, or in town, there's BC's. Also Cholo's. Lots of other places in town to have a drink.

Lots of great food on the island. Don't be afraid of the street food. It's really good, reasonably priced, and I've never heard of anyone getting sick from it.

Have a great trip! We'll probably see you there.....

Pelican reef a really nice spot, you will want a golf cart being that far south.

Beer you can easily get a case at the distributor. There is a nice bar there at the pool too.

Do not miss treating yourself to breakfast at Estel's in town on the beach.

So jealous... I can't wait to go back to Belize.

Fido's was fun. Definitely worth a visit. There's a cheap place to eat called 'My Secret Deli' that is very good.

I think it's also worth a visit going over the bridge North to Palapas Bar and Grill. It's an interesting bar that sits out over the water.

It is a slice of heaven! We are making our 4th trip to the island in 4 years. A vast difference from MO we live in Nixa, MO. Have stayed at Pelican Reef (which u will love) Greg and Lori are great as well as the Athens Gate property. Make sure to have a golf cart. This way you can enjoy and explore the island. You can buy beer (only lighthouse and belikin) and other goodies at the store. Try the homemade tortillas, chips and cinnamon bread from Casa Pan Dulce.

As for places to eat. There are SO many!

Must- hidden Teasures, palapa bar on north side (best BBQ sandwiches and that's saying a lot because of where we are from and the fish tacos are to die for). We go here many times a yr!! (even though it is a treck from the hotel). Elvi's kitchen, waruguma (papusas!!!!). Blue water grill. Mmmm

Also very good- crave, pepperonis pizza, wild mangos,

I wasn't all that impressed with sunset grill or the restaurant at Victoria house. Many better places! make sure to see the chicken drop. Very entertaining. We met Kelly. Great guy and his parties I hear are great. If u dive, DIVE!! If not snorkel it's incredible! All in all enjoy the beauty. Oh and a dirty banana drink is pretty great too.

Enjoy!!
