A 15 minute walk south is Blue Water Grill is a popular lunch and dinner spot on the beach in San Pedro serving a wide range of Belizean and International cuisine, so something for everyone. Sushi is served on Tuesday and Thursday and we are big fans of the aji poke salad.
A ten minute walk south is our top pick in San Pedro, Wild Mangoes, which serves ‘nuevo latino’ cuisine – Caribbean food infused with spicy latin influences from Cuba, Mexico and Argentina. The rum glazed bacon wrapped shrimp and the plantain crusted tilapia ensure that bookings are absolutely necessary for dinner.
For a truly rustic and authentic Belizean experience, check out El Fogon in San Pedro, where the five or so daily changing dishes are cooked in cast iron pots over an open fire pit. It is located one street down towards the lagoon from the arrivals section of the airstrip, behind a wooden fence.
The Reef is a San Pedro local institution serving fresh fish and seafood cooked in a variety of styles. The coconut shrimp comes highly recommended. Located on ‘middle street’, just ask around.
The Palapa Bar is a fun and friendly ‘over the water’ bar which attracts a good crowd, especially on Sundays. The bar food is tasty (burgers, sandwiches, etc) and you can look out for rays and dolphins in the waters surrounding. Located 1 mile north of San Pedro town, easily reachable by bike or golf cart.
