The Guava Limb Cafe in San Ignacio: A Chaa Creek Production

A few months ago I stayed at The Lodge at Chaa Creek for two really amazing nights.  From canoeing to the crazy night hike, from divine food to a massage (or two) to remember, I really had THE BEST TIME.  The huge, attentive staff is the best in Belize. Chaa Creek is an incredible laborKeep reading »

Destination Eating in Belize: Maya Beach Hotel & Bistro

Last year the Belize Tourism Board awarded the Maya Beach Bistro, Belize’s “Restaurant of the Year” for the second time.  The 2012 awards were pretty much swept by businesses on the Placencia Peninsula and caused a good amount of controversy throughout Belize.  Was it a fix?  Well…you can be the judge of that. But afterKeep reading »

Placencia, Belize: Candy Colored Cuteness, Coffee And Desserts

I’ve only been to Placencia in Southern Belize two times but based on the number of pictures that I’ve taken?  It feels like much more.   The town is so cute and the food is so good, I just love it.   My last post from this trip featured The Seaspray Hotel, the duelling (in my mind)Keep reading »

Fantastic Indian Food in Belize City and One Swami: Sumathi Restaurant

When I travel through Belize City, I generally eat the same old thing for lunch.  Chon Saan Palace.  A big comfortable Asian restaurant in town with powerful air conditioning, good internet, reliable & tasty food and a menu/tome that has over 20 pages…from Japanese to curries to Belizean.   You can’t go wrong.  And itKeep reading »

Placencia, Belize: Always Feels Like A Real Beach Getaway

I had landed in the town of Placencia.  After my 3 day Raggamuffin sailing adventure (see Part One and Two – one of the very best things I’ve done in Belize), I was ready to relax, lay around and do absolutely nothing.  (You’d be surprised how tiring sailing on a catamaran can be!)  Placencia is practicallyKeep reading »

Halloween Haunting at Blue Water Grill and Some Truly Delicious Sushi

Tuesday and Thursdays are sushi nights at one of San Pedro’s favorite restaurants, the Blue Water Grill.  As far as I know, they are the only ones in San Pedro that do sushi.  And it’s lucky for us, they do it extremely well.  It’s definitely a very popular night. Last night was pretty special.  Keep reading »

Isla Mujeres, Mexico Means GOOD Eats: Barlito and Rooster Cafe

I’ll repeat it because it is so true.  For such a small island (barely 5 miles in length), Isla Mujeres has some amazingly delicious eats.  It CERTAINLY helps that almost everything tasty that can be grown is grown in Mexico.  It’s a huge populous country with all sorts of altitudes and abundant sunshine.  As IKeep reading »

Isla Mujeres, Mexico Means GOOD Eats: Gelato and Mango Cafe

For such a small island (less than 5 miles in length and pretty much a stones throw in width), Isla Mujeres, Mexico has some amazing restaurants, street food and ice cream at really reasonable prices.  Your selection is big.  With over 1 million tourists coming onto the island each year, a place is going toKeep reading »

THE Breakfast Spot in San Ignacio: Pop’s Restaurant

What warm blooded creature doesn’t love scrambled eggs with bacon for breakfast or even better…a stack of banana pancakes for lunch?  Especially when that breakfast comes with a side of DELICIOUS Belizean favorites like fry jacks or thick homemade flour tortillas?  Or more American style diner favorites like hash browns and the bottomless cup ofKeep reading »

Believe It or Not: My First Trip to Lazy Croc’s BBQ, the Island Is As Busy as It Gets!

Lazy Croc’s Barbecue on Ambergris Caye has been famous for a few years now. Residents and visitors to the island RAVE about the food. A mention of Lazy Croc’s pulled pork sends them into a trance. And when they closed temporarily in 2012 (with no indication that they would ever re-open), more than one threatened to leave the island.

Lunch at My Favorite – Wild Mango’s and a Bit of Chocolate

Why does it seem like the whole Facebook world is on a dietary cleanse?  All this talk of it makes me hungry.  Plus, I can think of no better way to celebrate my return to San Pedro than with a lunch at my favorite splurge lunch spot, Wild Mango’s.  The food, the cocktails (order the caiprinha…notKeep reading »

DJ’s Seaside Bar and Restaurant: Is It Really the Best Burger in Town?

Update:  DJ’s Seaside Bar sadly closed…a long time ago.  I miss the burger. There has been a ton of hype about the newly relocated DJ’s Restaurant for the past few months.  I have been instructed by what seems like countless people to try “the best burger in Belize”.  I do love a burger. Yesterday, myKeep reading »
