Eat Like a Local: Belize Food Tours is a MUST-DO!

A trip to Ambergris Caye, Belize is not just a beach vacation.  It’s no all-inclusive holiday.  Yes there are gorgeous waters and white sands and plenty of loungers around your resort pool but the fun is more than that.  Visitors return year after year because of the people.  (7 Reasons I think Belize is SOKeep reading »

Ramon’s Village & Estel’s Dine by the Sea & Jimmy Buffett

Yesterday we met up with friends at favorite breakfast spot, Estel’s Dine by the Sea.  Feet in the sand, oldies on the radio, we all ordered one of my favorite foods – the Belizean Fry Jack. (Awesome shirt from a Belizean owned company called ID Seven.  Check them out) I knew Estel’s had been aroundKeep reading »

Iguana Juan’s: Fresh Food in a Fresh Location

It was the sign that got me.   The location described on the sign to be precise. “Conveniently located upstairs of an old building, on a back street, on an island in Central America”. Funny.  And pretty close to how directions are given on the island of Ambergris.  Few people know the proper street names.  “Across fromKeep reading »

Sunday Afternoon at the Truck Stop on Ambergris Caye

At first light, yesterday looked like it was going to be a complete rain-out.  We’ve had a few unseasonably dreary days over the past week and Sunday wasn’t looking good… This was a particularly dark cloud passing midmorning. So I decided to test out a pierogi recipe – my first attempt at my favorite PolishKeep reading »

Every Who Down in Who-Ville was at Ambergris Caye’s Truck Stop Last Night

San Pedro’s Truck Stop hit another one out of the park last night.  The Holiday Craft fair, Christmas tree lighting and visit from Santa was jam packed with locals and visitors, kids and adults and quite a few dogs. They outdid themselves with decorations this year…lights and Santas everywhere.  The stage looked PERFECT for holidayKeep reading »

Some of my Favorite Seafood at Lily’s Treasure Chest on the Beach

There are a handful of places that I always recommend for visitors to San Pedro, Belize.  Tops on the Lunch Time List is Lily’s Treasure Chest – ALWAYS #1 for fried fish and conch ceviche with a gorgeous view. Yesterday, we hopped on the 1.15pm  water taxi (the Coastal Xpress) for the 20 minute rideKeep reading »

Venti Non-Fat Latte with 2% Foam? Flight Cafe Opens in San Pedro

It’s hard to imagine the world without Starbucks.  For years it was my morning…and often afternoon ritual.  The uber-efficient barristas who remember your order after one visit, the strange Starbucks vocabulary (they taught me the word barrista!), the fixings bar with nutmeg, heavy cream and Sugar In the Raw.  I can easily conjure up theKeep reading »

A Myriad of Meals: Lunch Options on Ambergris Caye

Lunch on Ambergris Caye Belize is the biggest meal of the day. Here are just some ideas for GREAT places to eat.

I think that America has it all wrong.  I spent the first 30-ish years of my life eating my largest meal in the evening – dinner or, if you are from the south USA, supper.   Lunch was a quicky…a grab-on-the-run, a filler meal. True to my American nature, I didn’t think much about itKeep reading »

Survey Says? My First Game Show at The Truck Stop

The Truck Stop is officially the hottest spot in San Pedro – for movies over the water, for sunset drinks and swinging, for the Sunday pig roast and corn hole tourney and for great food and ice cream.  But it’s the game show nights that I’ve been hearing the most about – The Newlywed Game…Price isKeep reading »

Lunch With Chocolate in San Pedro, Belize

My friend is visiting Belize!  It’s been a few years and yesterday, we went to two of her favorite places for lunch.  Two of my favorites.  Wild Mango’s on the beach and the Chocolate Company. It’s been too long!  Both are located at the south end of Front Street in San Pedro town.  Right onKeep reading »

Chaya: Overlooked Deliciousness & Wonder Green of Belize?

Chaya or Maya Tree Spinach is native to the Yucatan and to Belize – it’s a food that you see in some of the local restaurants that serve some more typical cuisines – and once in a while you see packages of it at the local green grocer. Chaya is the most delicious green thatKeep reading »

New Haven-Style Pizza Right Here in Belize?

If you have been reading my blog even sporadically, you know that I love San Pedro’s hot spot and only food park, The Truck Stop. Not only do they have delicious food and ICE CREAM but a happening bar and lots and lots of fun events from the monthly Farmers’ Market to Wednesday movies underKeep reading »
