Great party bar

After shore excursion went here for a beer before heading back to ship. Sits right down the boardwalk from the tender pier. Easy to walk to.

Meat pies were not filled with an unknown runny brown gravy with no visible meat. Pastry was good though. Shrimp basket said 6-8 shrimp and it only had 5 very small bait shrimp. We had to ask for everything. Great location but terrible food and service. They also have a bar across the street over the water and it was... More

I am sorry you didn't enjoy the meat pies. We get them from the local bakery who has been making them for the whole country of Belize for over 30 years. They are a staple food, and the spicy gravy is what makes them taste so yummy. Sorry to hear about the shrimp, we are at the mercy of the... More

The food was delicious, we ordered coconut shrimp and onion rings, but the service was somewhat slow. We were halfway through our drinks when the food arrived.

We did a zip line and cave tubing tour with a stop at the zoo. Then we headed back to town to return car and stop for a drink at the legendary Wet Lizard Bar we had heard and read about for 6 months. Upon entering seamed like a typical island bar. We thought the bar would be packed as... More

Typically in the summer and especially if there is only one ship in port, we get a good rush around lunch time, and then everyone starts heading back to the ship. Wet Lizard is a great and fun place, I am sorry that you were disappointed. There is no reason the bartender didn't tend to you faster, and I do... More

We went in the wet lizard after a long day at Goffs caye and had a few beers before getting our tender back to the boat. A great watering hole with bags of atmosphere and local charm.

Since our last visit in October, they have added draft beer at $2 a glass. It's plenty cold and the Wi-Fi is still free and excellent!

So glad you stopped on by and enjoyed yourself. Yes we do offer wifi, and yes, Belize still struggles with it being constant and efficient. Thats why you get to have a drink, some nachos, and wait for the download. LOL Hope to see you back here again real soon and please say hello Laura More
