I have had a few dinners at Maracas and they were all excellent. The food was full of flavour and it had a wonderful atmosphere. Dining right beside the river is a wonderful experience. Their chicken wings were the best I’ve ever had!

Description
Maracas Bar and Grill is a great option for dining on the river. We offer daily tours to Lamanai. You can enjoy a beer on the river deck while watching the tug boats and barges travel the river hauling sugar and molasses for export. Good food...Good music! Join us for lunch or dinner or a drink by the river!
