Spring Break For the Non Traditionally Aged on Ambergris Caye: A Golf Cart Bar Crawl

We are in the midst of Spring Break season.  And on Ambergris Caye, rather than a Cancun or Daytona Beach situation, that means families and smaller groups of young people.  The island is bustling with all sorts of visitors looking to escape a winter that is lasting a bit too long up north.

A little while ago, I received an email from a reader who has visited the island before.  He was returning with a bit group of his friends to rent a gorgeous house in a gorgeous area and celebrating birthdays.  Not exactly 20 co-eds packing into one small hotel room in South Padres Island and slugging shots all day and night.  Well…not exactly.

Bar crawl at Crazy Canucks San Pedro Belize

Adam asked me for a proposed golf cart bar crawl.  Heading from south of town to north.  They were staying at this BEAUTIFUL house and certainly wanted to end up there.  They were also celebrating some 50th birthdays!

Here is what I suggested:

  • Crazy Canuck’s – on the beach
  • On the lagoon side behind high school – best little local bar – Barrel Bar – or or Cholo’s Sports Bar on the beach – fun random spots
  • Maxi’s – the new bar/gastro-pub on Front Street across from Fido’s…
  • Palapa Bar – Boca del Rio
  • Sandy Toes Bar – Boca Del Rio with gorgeous beach
  • Truck Stop 1 mile north
  • Rojo Beach Bar – just north of you

And then I asked for photos.  You can get details on almost all the bars below.

The convoy heads out.

They started at Crazy Canuck’s located less than 1 mile south of town – a bar loved for the hermit crab races and the live music Sunday afternoon Funday.

If there is no live music at the time…make your own!

A stop at Cholo’s on the beach.

Ok…not a TON going on…

Next move?  Palapa Bar…where things started picking back up.

Here comes the shots…

I forgot Wayo’s on the beach.  They headed over.

And then as night fell…Truck Stop…

Things are getting fuzzier…

And then off to Rojo for dinner.  Nice work guys!

Super fun idea.

    Well we are seasoned professionals and evidently have a drinking problem so we do 2 town crawls on the beach, a town crawl in town, a south crawl and 2 to 3 north crawls because you cant do them all in one day. Oh ….and a Caye Caulker crawl. Don’t judge, I said we were professionals.
