Owner description: Come visit Jaguar Lanes. We are a Family Friendly & Adult Fun experience. We have four regulation 10 pin lanes (just like your favorite bowling alley back home) and automatic pinsetters. We have bowling shoes, socks, and balls for you. You can just drop by or call ahead to reserve a lane. Hungry? How about the best pizza in Belize! We also make delicious 1/4 Pound Hamburgers, BBQ Sandwiches, BBQ Nachos, and Hand Cut Fries. You can dine in or order take out. Thirsty? We offer Beer, Soda, Fruit Juice, and Cocktails. Why don't you try our famous Jaguar Lanes Rum Punch? I promise you will want more than one. Do you want to host a private party? For a very reasonable price, you can have a bowling party for your birthday, wedding, office party, or just any excuse for a good time. Did you have a hot day on the beach? Come enjoy our Air-conditioning. We are also a great way to spend a rainy day. Looking for a place to watch NFL, NBA, College Sports, NHL, Football (soccer), or MMA? We will have it on our two flat screen tv's from broadcasts worldwide.

“Such a cute and fun place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had a great time bowling a quick game at Jaguar Lanes after a long day in the sun. The pizza was decent, but boy oh boy if they have the peanut butter pie available when you go, make sure you get it! It was heaven on a fork. I would suggest arriving close to opening time (which could be 2:00 or 4:00 pm depending on the day) in order to ensure you get one of the four lanes and it's not too crowded yet.

“Very fun, offbeat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

I thought the pizza was nothing to write home about (it tasted frozen to me, but I'm a pizza nut), but the spot was so random we had a great time. Wished we ordered the nachos which smelled amazing!

“A great little escape.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Always a great time at Jaguar Lanes. It's a great little escape to do something different other than beach or jungle. Not that beach or jungle is bad, it's just the normalcy of going bowling here on the peninsula. The food is quick and good, there's a limited bar and the crowd is usually loud with everyone having fun ribbing each other about their horrible bowling techniques. Sometimes you'll even find live music and on some Saturdays this is the place to be for the flea market in the parking lot. They also have mens and women nights as well as league nights. A good place to go.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

I had seen this place many times, and always intended to come bowling.

The limited hours had always turned me off a bit (they close at 8pm according to their signage), and we were never able to make it happen.

We finally did, and we did not regret it. In fact, we came 3 times on our trip.

They have a good happy hour, TVs to watch sporting events, and the food exceeded expectations. Sandwiches and nachos very good, pizza (which had some hype) lived up to expectations, delicious. We also had a peanut butter pie of some sort for desert that was outstanding!

Not to mention four fully automated legitimate bowling lanes.

Scoring is done by hand, of course, and if you have questions, Bob or Asain (sp?) are happy to help.

We had a decent group one night and called Bob at 7pm. They kept it open for us (we stayed 'til past 9:30) and were happy to do so.

The employees even threw out a challenge to our two best bowlers on a game. Asain and his buddy messed around and sand-bagged and still beat us by 3 pins. We paid for the shots…


Overall this place is awesome and I will be going back next time I am in town. Eveything about this place is great except one thing: the lighting is too bright.

If they decreased the wattage in their bulbs or installed some dimmers you might need a crowbar to get me out of this place.

Love it.

“100% Legit bowling alley. And AWESOME pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Four lane alley with bumpers for kids, with shoes for rent, automatic ball/pinsetters, etc. The bartender even went out and re-oiled the lanes while we were there. Popular with the locals, it was recommended we visit and have pizza, which was absolutely delicious!
