THE hangout for cruisers, ex-cruisers, cruiser-wannabes

Cannot beat their location and crowd. As a cruiser, we were here constantly during our month-plus of cruising soutyhern Belize. Yopli's a gem, so is her husband, if you need something or jsut want to hang in and around Placencia this is the place to make the connections and get to know everyone... read more

If you want to get together with a lot of expat Canadians and Americans this is the place. Nice location right out over the water not far from the main pier. We watched Super Bowl games here and enjoyed the drinks and atmosphere. Never did have a meal but from what we saw the food looked good. Actually we did... More

Yoli's is a weird little hang out on the water run by a slightly crazy couple that will immediately endear themselves to you. Yoli's is a popular spot for the cruising community that frequents these parts and the large deck, well appointed dingy dock, good drinks and fun food keep them coming back again and again. Our first trip here... More

If you haven't been to Yoli's you haven't been to Placencia! The BBQ on Sunday is an institution; the beer the same as everywhere else! The crowd is home grown and the ring toss game almost world famous!

We were staying in a nearby hotel whose restaurant didn't open till 7 am, so as I was wandering the beach looking for coffee someone directed me to Yoli's. Not only is the coffee on before all the other restaurants open, but it's FREE. And Yoli and her family just welcome everyone in and include you in their lives and... More

Hidden among the palm trees and against the South end of Placencia Peninsula is this open walled bar and grill. You will find a mix of locals and travelers hanging out, drinking a Bellikin (local beer) or listening to live music. On Sundays, go to Yoli's for their chicken or ribs barbecue.Since they have a free dock, many dingies arrive... More

Just returned from 2 weeks on the Placencia Peninsula. Yoli’s Bar & Grill is an awesome place off the beaten path. Always a breeze, panoramic view of the Placencia anchorage, friendly staff ( Yoli, Regan, Sherry, Winston & Eric make you feel like old friends from the moment you arrive ), stiff drinks ( good job Eric ! ), great...

Had this place recommended to us by some friends that we had made. They raved about Yoli's and how special the people were. Regan was from our home town in British Columbia and from first meeting him and Yoli.....it was like we were meeting up with old friends. They're a wonderful couple and the bar is in an amazing location... More

Hard to find location...you may have to ask around to get to it...we did! Down a side street and a between houses path to get to. But worth the search. A bar with a pier to walk out on and watch the sunsets, bar only...a very expat atmosphere with ring toss (have to see it, hard to describe), a hippie... More

Went here for just a Belekin and the view. Very nice people and a very relaxed atmosphere. Great scenery, what else can I say?
