lunch in belize

Most locals will enjoy a lunch of barbecue (or stewed) chicken served with rice & beans, coleslaw, and a fried plantain. You should expect to pay around US$5 for this lunch at any roadside stand or “deli”. A more adventurous lunch can be found at any hotel, restaurant, or bar. There are so many different cuisines and surroundings to pick from for a sumptuous lunch. For a lighter appetite, try some ceviche. Ceviche is chopped shrimp, lobster, fish, or conch combined with tomatoes, onions, and cilantro, then marinated in lime juice. It is served with fresh tortilla chips. A perfect light lunch or afternoon snack!

dinner in belize

There are 4 parallel north-south stretches of restaurants around San Pedro. They are the beach overlooking the reef and then front, middle, and back streets. Yes, we know they have names but virtually no one knows them by their street names. Generally, the prices for dinner are most expensive at the beach and gradually less as you go past front, middle, and back streets. While prices get cheaper, the quality does not change significantly. As to tastes, San Pedro is home to many cuisines: Belizean, El Salvadorian, Chinese, Italian, Indian, Thai, Barbecue, Vegetarian, and Seafood of all types. We encourage you to explore the many options of food choices, locations, and prices.

Another fun dining option is to go aboard one of the dinner boats available from several of the local tour operators.
