New Year’s Eve 2019 On Ambergris Caye

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.

Iguana Juan’s, Back Street, San Pedro town – NYE Party with Davin McCoy

Join us on New Year’s Eve for an evening of amazing food and soulful live music to welcome in 2019! Iguana Juan’s welcomes award winning singer-songwriter Davin McCoy out of Atlanta to ring in 2019, along with a four course dinner and a glass of champagne to toast to a year of happiness, health and prosperity.

Check out Davin’s music here:

Limited Availability – reservations strongly recommended – prepayments accepted online or in person. Reservations held with credit card

I just watched some of this promo video for Mr McCoy and he’s good!

Crazy Canuck’s Beach Bar – about 1/2 mile south of town:  Ring in the new year at Crazy Canucks! We will have party favors, free shots and specials all night. And a champagne toast at midnight!

DJ begins at 8pm.

Want to stay away from the crazy crowds in town? Party with us! We still get a great view of the fireworks at midnight.

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.

Holiday Hotel, Front Street, San Pedro

Please message me with details if I missed your party…and HAPPY BOXING DAY!  Let the napping commence!
