Checking out the Construction at The Palapa Bar, Ambergris Caye


It’s like my blog is stuck on Replay, the needle’s skipping…yesterday was a gorgeous day on Ambergris Caye.  I gush…I KNOW!  But it’s really been spectacular.  And a perfect one to trot up to the Palapa Bar to check out a bit of construction work they are doing. I started at the Coastal Xpress (the waterKeep reading »

A Gorgeous Night For a Party at the Palapa Bar


It’s Good Friday and today there is no alcohol sold or served in Belize.  In San Pedro, many tour companies are closed – it is considered by many to be bad luck to be on the sea today.   But last night, was a different story…a huge surprise party was planned for Scott’s (aka “TheKeep reading »

A Gorgeous Day To Walk The Beach…Somethings Never Change


This blog post is mostly about how beautiful the beach looked on my walk northward to the bridge on Thursday afternoon. But inevitably…it turns into one about changes.  People that visit Ambergris Caye once a year (there are many of them) have been bowled over by this year’s changes on the island.  Perhaps it wasKeep reading »

Ambergris Caye Has a Truck Stop and I Predict a HUGE HIT


The first thing you are going to ask is “When does this wonderful place open?”, so I will answer that immediately.  Saturday 11am to 8pm.  The Truck Stop – about 1.5 miles north of the bridge.  San Pedro’s newest, hippest and only outdoor food court and beer garden. Three containers/restaurants and one gorgeous bar –Keep reading »

Saturday Snapshots: My Week on Ambergris Caye


Ahhh the past week and a half…Halloween, dog sitting up north, SUN and lots of driving back and forth up and down the island. Here are my snapshots…my life around the island.  I remain Insta-obsessed so almost all of them are on there…even this braggy one about my new Insta-milestone.  I’m only about 64.13 millionKeep reading »

Just One Recipe for Three Perfect Days on Ambergris Caye!

unnamed (2)

I met Laura and her husband in Placencia last November…they were just opening up Caribbean Beach Cabanas – a super cute (I MEAN CUTE) resort they bought on a gorgeous stretch of beach in Placencia Village. She also writes an amazing blog about her Ohio to Placencia experience.  Pure Placencia.  And now she is guest postingKeep reading »

Exciting New Bars & Restaurants on Ambergris Caye: Nook Restaurant & Cocktail Bartique


There are no franchises or chain stores in Belize.  No McDonald’s, no Walmarts, no Applebee’s with it’s free fries refills…too small of a population, prohibitive with the import duties…whatever the reason?  We don’t have them… But one clever business woman, Erin, is taking a popular business that she started in Placencia, Belize and opening a “sisterKeep reading »

Exciting New Bars & Restaurants on Ambergris Caye: Stella’s Smile


***Please note that this post was written in great anguish and it is a modern miracle that my 2012 HP wasn’t tossed over my balcony.  What is it about computer problems that make me insane and murderous?*** New spots are popping up around Ambergris Caye.  Not just change of ownership at an existing place butKeep reading »

Mymula Ceviche and A Film Star: Lunch at Hurricane’s Ceviche Bar


I have walked past it 1000x but just recently, I’ve been asking around town about THE BEST CEVICHE.  And Hurricane’s CEVICHE Bar keeps popping up. Oddly, though, they have been around for about 5 years now, I’ve never eaten there.  But yesterday, with the sun out and the breeze blowing, it seemed like a perfectKeep reading »

My Yesterday: Winds, A Dog Training Cruise, Croc Hunting and A Pupusa


Yesterday the sun and the relatively high winds continued.   “The Easter winds” or “The March/April Blow” – the late Spring is usually pretty blustery and warm in Belize.  Perfect for our kite boarder from yesterday’s post… and equally nice if you are taking a walk around town.  No one in the hot sun ever cursedKeep reading »

The V Bar Opens Beachfront at the Venezia Del Caribe Construction Site


Yesterday was the opening of a new bar on the beachfront just north of Coco Beach Resort – at about 3 mile north, Ambergris Caye.  The V Bar at the building site for Venezia Del Caribe – perhaps one of the most ambitious projects to ever be built on Ambergris Caye. Slated to be occupied in about 18 months,Keep reading »
