What can I say? We love this place! Drinks are not too expensive and really good food. Fun to look all around and see the different writings from visitors all over the world! About to head to Ambergris Caye for the third time and the Palapa Bar will be visited right away.

Food is good, drinks yummy and view is awesome! You can float on the water and have buckets of beer lowered to you! Bananango drink is delish!

This place is so fun! If you are in Belize and want a fun bar to visit during the day this is the one! The drinks are yummy and the food is delicious - deep fried heaven! They lower buckets of beer down to you while you lounge on floating doughnuts. AMAZING! super fun!

Great place to hang out! You can drink, eat or play here. Friendly staff and entertaining decorations. Island breeze cools you off and keeps bugs away. You can float in the tubes tied to the pier while sipping your favorite beverages! Would definitely return

Food was good but slow. Bar seating only. Very crowded. Probably a great place to go just to have a drink. Watched a stingray swim while we ate.

This is a fun place to go for a drink. The bar is on stilts over the ocean and is extremely laid back.

This spot is recommended for anyone traveling to San Pedro. I somehow always found myself back here during my trip. Grab a beer and look out over the ocean. You'll realize that it's exactly where you wanted to be

Imagine playing Junga with end pieces of 2 x 4's! Or having your cold beer delivered to you via bucket and rope as you float on an inner tube in the Caribbean Sea! Quench your thirst or munch on a Big Sexy Burger. The drinks are cold, the food is great, and the bartender is a hoot! You didn't go... More

Laid back and wonderful. Float and have your drinks delivered by pulley. So relaxing. On the north side of the bridge. Easy to find.
