So... The Lazy Lizard had construction going on when we visited in early April (I'm sure it's complete or nearly complete now). We were disappointed to learn this ahead of our trip and wondered how the construction would change the experience. If you're on Caye Caulker you learn to be quite fluid and go with the flow so we went... More

We went here to grab a drink and visit one of the most popular locations. Once repairs are done, it will be amazing. For now, you can still jump in the water or grab a drink at the bar. I believe the renovations are scheduled to be complete in the next month or so. While there, they were moving fast.... More

We were just three weeks early on the completion of extensive renovation. Which meant they were closed and construction noise. Pretty hard to be fair but the Facebook updates could have served better in terms of having the correct expectations. Wish we could have had a dinner and night at the Lazy Lizard. I heard the cook was the best... More

The spot at the north of the island is great to watch the sunset. The cocktails are not amazing but they are quite cheap during happy hour, so you get what you pay for. Snacks are nothing special. Staff are friendly.

A nice place next to the split to get a drink. A great place to watch boats and people. It is an out of the way place at the end of all the other businesses. The view of the water is t bad either. You can see both sides of the island.

Cool reggae bar, Fun place to chill out and meet people. Decent food. great cocktails. including a powerful green lizard drink! Always fun to jump off the pier into the water. just be careful of the sometimes strong current flowing between the opposing island (This is a tidal current, so it changes depending on the time). Young children could have... More

A top place to enjoy cheap drinks during happy hour and watch the sun set over the sea. Very popular in the evening and on a nice bit of beach where the swimming is best.

This was a great bar. Cheap buckets of beer, right by The Split with a swimming spot, games on the sand, and tons of both locals and tourists. Great atmosphere.
