Christmas Displays on Ambergris Caye & An Afternoon In Town

Yesterday I headed to San Pedro to document some of the tropical Christmas displays around town.  There have been some great ones in previous years that I wanted to seek out but didn’t find…

At Giovanni’s Chetumal boat terminal last Christmas

The fun Belikin tree at Market Basket at Grand Caribe.

And then the one WAY up north at gorgeous Tranquility Bay Resort – 14 miles north.  I certainly wasn’t going to make it up there!

And I didn’t make it across to Caye Caulker to see if this tree has gone up.

While many Christmas ornaments and displays in Belize involve LOTS OF GLITTER, this simple displays are just beautiful.

But don’t get me wrong…when I go into Belize Bank and join the line?  I LOVE the glitter explosion.

Here’s what I saw this week…

Our town tree.

And here’s what I did yesterday.

First stopping by Grand Caribe Resort for her snowman.  Love this.  Especially on a gorgeous Belize December day.

Next up is the Truck Stop.  They are having a 15 vendor Christmas Craft fair tomorrow from 3 to 6pm with a lighting of the tree.

Also in the works is the new pizza joint, Slice of Haven!  They’ve installed a crazy new oven that gets up to 900 degrees!

And time for lunch.  Okay, ok, this has little to do with Christmas but we stopped at the food truck El Jefe for a bacon cheese burger WITH fries for $10bzd.  And it was SERIOUSLY good.

Marvin, one of the former chefs at Rojo Beach Bar, is the owner.  And he makes GREAT food.  You can check the menu updates on his Facebook page.  And bonus:  you are right at Finn & Martini, so you can pull up a chair and eat there.

The bling inside the bar and the gorgeous orchids!!! say HOLIDAYS to me.  The new chandelier looks gorgeous.

So…that’s my recap.  If you see any tropical trees or displays around the country, please send me a picture or let me know.  I bet you could get very creative around here.
