Happy Happy Happy Boxing Day – such a CIVILIZED holiday that we celebrate in Belize. I’m not sure WHY the ex-British American colonies did not hold onto that one.
A day for eating Christmas candy and left-overs, napping, travel…just a buffer between the holidays and going-back-to-work.

And this year. He’s slimmed down considerably!
I just started opening emails and am a bit overwhelmed THE QUESTION: What should be do on New Year’s Eve. (I skimmed this in grammerly and I THINK I got the punctuation correct – it’s tricky!)
I am hardly one to stay up late…and I haven’t been out in town for YEARS on NYE but here is what I’ve gathered. And it depends…do you want a dinner and mingling with a smaller group? Do you want to be in the middle of it all? Do you want to dance-dance-dance? Is seeing the fireworks at midnight a must?
Here are some great choices.
Rain Restaurant at Grand Caribe
DID you that this roof top restaurant with a killer view over the lagoon ALSO has a new chef? Chris Aycock, former chef at Blue Water Grill, has taken over and is working on quite a few changes…including a sushi bar at the newly renamed sister-restaurant, AQUA.
I will report back with all of the details about the changes…but this rooftop party should be hopping and the food? Delicious.
Fido’s Beach Bar, Front Street, San Pedro town – everyone who goes into town for NYE will probably spend time at Fido’s. DJ Debbie is perhaps the best in town at keeping a crowd dancing. Just go slow on the $5bzd shots.
Camo Cantina – About 1 mile south of town – the details on their party
Croc’s Sunset Bar – About 1 mile north of town
This towering palapa bar is having their own fireworks display and a DJ on the top floor – picture from earlier this year with a lee bit of added sparkle.
