“Sports Bar is where you go for the start of the night. The crowd begins to arrive around 09:30 pm except on trivia nights when you need to be there by 08:00 pm in order to participate. It's been around since forever. Each day hosts a different event. Check their facebook page to see what they're up to when you get here!”

“The Lazy Lizard has been popular with the locals for generations. It is the home of the famous Lizard Juice! A big, green, alcoholic drink that's sure to give you a buzz. The Lazy Lizard is constantly hosting competitions like the big splash! Where you have to jump off a scarily high dive board and the person to make the biggest splash, wins! It's family friendly. They offer beach volleyball. A restaurant and bar is located on site and let's not forget, the music is always great. The Lazy Lizard is a favourite for everyone. ”

“Definitely the place to go for your bread, baguettes and pastries. Bakeries always smell so good and this is no different. I always buy more than I intend, including their bread pudding, which is a must.”

“Easily the best pasta this side of Abruzzo, Italy. Reservations highly recommended as this intimate restaurant is full every night. The owners, Anna and Armando, will welcome you as friends and there is a different choice of either a meat or vegetarian option daily. Quite simply, a not to be missed dining destination.”

“Now established on the North island of Caye Caulker, Koko King has a pristine beach, private pool and a stunning restaurant over the water. Located on the leeside of the island, this place is the ideal spot to get away from the main village and enjoy a little peace. A true slice of paradise. Live music events are often held here. There is a regular boat service which leaves from the rear dock several times an hour.”
