Great Mexican food

Coming from Texas, I know great Mexican food. This place has great Mexican food with a seafood twist. Lobster quesadillas were excellent, lobster enchiladas almost had "too much lobster" for one meal (if that's even possible). The wife says "best lime daiquiri in Belize." Price was right too!

Our dinner was tasty. We stopped in after realizing a different restaurant was closed for the evening. The staff created a dish just for me as I wasn't extremely hungry and didn't want to over-order and waste food. It is on the beach with nice views!

Well the food is Delicious and the view is amazing. You have the coconut trees, white sandy beach and the beautiful ocean view while you enjoy your meal. The staff is very friendly and the service is great. All is well, enjoy.

My wife and I stopped in at Caliente while we were shopping in San Pedro during our Anniversary vacation. Truth be told, what drew my wife into this restaurant was the sign outside advertising margaritas. When we went inside, we were seated promptly and given menus. The restaurant was clean, and the view from the outside dining area is great.... More

Caliente's was recommended to us by others at Ramon's Village. Food was good, view was good, price was average. We happened to be at the right spot at the right time... 1/2 price margarita's with food purchase. Everyone loved their taco's and quesadilla's. Caliente's is worth a visit when in San Pedro.

This was the first restaurant we went to after getting settled in. It is right on the water and has a nice outdoor dining area. The service was very good, I'm still not sure who our waiter was, every one that walked by helped us. The food was very good and reasonably priced considering we were on an island in... More

After a day of some of the best snorkeling anywhere in the world you have to stop and see Joel who makes the best margaritas in Central America. His fresh squeezed lime juice is awesome. The chips and pico are to die for also. Thanks Rusty
