“My Favorite Place to Hang-Out!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

This bar is everything the reviews say about it and more! We stayed in this neighborhood so spent time here on at least 5 or 6 occasions. This place is SO welcoming! Wayo has hospitality down and it seems to come all naturally to this man! His wife Dee is equally as charming! These bartenders go out of their way to be kind, helpful, and inclusive with all the patrons. Trevor really made me feel taken care of when my husband was very late from the Blue Hole diving day and twice called the dive shop (with-out my asking him to) to make sure all was ok. He handed me the phone and said to go inside to speak in a quieter location. Turns out the boat had motor problems...they were nearly 3 hours late! I was really worried but trying to be cool about it...Trevor could see right through my cool and I cannot thank him enough for his kindness! Brandon sometimes BBQ's/cooks for them and if is is doing either you are in for a treat!!! Archie and Ruby (hope names are correct) were wonderful personalities as well. All the locals that hang there are friendly and before you know it you feel right at home! Thank you everyone for your kindness, conversation, and memories! Do yourself a favor and get to Wayo's!

“Best Reason to come to San Pedro”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Once you sit on a stool here you will never want to leave! Ruby, Archie and Jerome are super people. Always smiling and having fun with everyone. They serve great drinks, bring out the popcorn, and super cold beer. We thought we were going to be lost when they closed BC's but this is the new home bar in San Pedro. Wayo and Dee are the type of owners all hotels and bars should have. we ran into them on Caye Caulker and they remembered our names. Tell me many owners that can do that. Truly the best reason to come to San Pedro.

“Best bar on the beach”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Its our local bar, just love the place, really simple and on the beach. Wayo , Dee and their staff are the best. They know how to mix a drink and serve it. Always a crowd of locals and visitors having fun , music and karaoke on certain nights. Just bring your own food if your hungry.
They have a palapa to party under and they have just opened Aquavista next door if you need a place to stay. A must visit place on the island

“Wayo not drinkin mon?!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Wayo and Ruby and their families are the friendliest folks around. This was a regular stop, multiple times per day. Drop in get a beer, chat with Wayo, and walk down the beach - only to end up there again. Great Christmas eve celebration with Turkey and everything! One evening they rounded up a great reggae band and it made for an amazing atmosphere. They are simply awesome -

"where everyone knows your name" comes to mind. Great location, by far the BEST local bar in San Pedro.

“Wayo's is the beach bar extrordinaire!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

We ended the evening at Wayo's several times during our Ambergris Caye visit. Wonderful owners & staff---and guests! Great drinks, reasonably priced, served strong and often---with a smile and great conversation. The bar is open & comfy with amazing water views just across the beach. Puppy Marvin is the house greater. Wayo (pronounced YO) & Deb are also very involved in local charities and always willing to give a helping hand. Thank you for fun nights---we'll do our best to visit again!
