Enjoy the Best of Belize Nightlife

By 1/24/2019 2 minutes


You may think of Belize as a place to enjoy long sunny days on the beach, scuba diving or trekking the jungle. It's true that Belize is perfect for daytime fun, but the fun doesn't stop when the day is over. In many parts of Belize, that's just when the fun is getting started. Here's our guide to the best nightlife in Belize.

Where to go when the sun goes down

San Ignacio, Cayo District. San Ignacio has some of the busiest restaurants and nightlife in Belize. The action here happens mostly on Burns Avenue, where you'll find a huge collection of restaurants and bar like Tandoor, Eva’s, Serendib, and Guava Limb that all serve sumptuous meals and delicious local drinks. If it's late and you want to keep partying, head over to the Princess Hotel and Casino or the Blue Angel Night Club.

Belmopan City, Cayo District. The modern, thriving capital city of Belize is a hub of activity both day and night. Enjoy great drinks and live entertainment at La Cabana or shoot pool at Mike's Cue Club.

Chef Sean Kuylen
A journey through Belize with world renowned Belizean Chef, Sean Kuylen. Learn about the different cultural dishes that make up Belizean Cuisine.
Benque Viejo Del Carmen, Cayo District. A mile from the Guatemalan border in Western Belize, Benque Viejo is a growing town. After a day of touring the nearby Maya ruins in the Cayo District, you can unwind at Oki's Nightclub, which is open from Thursday to Sunday, or the Picadilly Nightclub and Lounge.

San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye. Head to the white sandy beaches in San Pedro Town and discover a plethora of beachside eateries and nightclubs. Ambergris Caye has the widest selection of restaurants in Belize, from casual dockside bars to upscale international fare. Check out Coco’s Loco Beach Bar, Secret Paradise Beach Bar, and Crazy Canucks. And if you want to take the party to the next level after midnight, then check out Jaguar’s Night Club or Big Daddy’s.


Caye Caulker Island
. This low-key, slow-paced island may be sleepy in the daytime, but it comes alive at night. Don't miss Koko King and The Lazy Lizard, where "the drinks are strong, the food is delicious," and you can always find live music acts from around the region.

Placencia Village. This pretty fishing village on the Placencia Penninsula springs to life with beachfront parties that go all night long. Like Ambergris Caye, Placencia Village is chock-full of waterfront lounges, bars, and dining options. Make your first stop at the Barefoot Beach Bar, famous for its beautiful beachside setting, great atmosphere and a huge selection of rum drinks. Tipsy Tuna Beach Bar and Restaurant is another great option and is just adjacent to the Barefoot Bar!

Dangriga Town, Stann Creek District. While you're exploring the history and culture of Belize in Dangriga, you might need a break. If so, enjoy delicious local food, an ice-cold beer or a tasty rum cocktail at the Roxy Club or the Salty Dog Saloon.

Hopkins Village, Stann Creek. Hopkins Village is the place to go if you want to experience the true flavor of Belize. You'll find a charming Garifuna village where fishing is still a way of life. Innies Restaurant and the Laruna Hati feature authentic Garifuna dishes on their menus.

San Pedro (Ambergris Caye)
The Northern coast of Ambergris Caye has amazing blue waters and beautiful views along the way. The Mexico Rocks Day Sail starts with sailing to Mexico Rocks, which at the end of 2015 ... morebecame a part of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, to protect its rich marine life and precious corals. We do our first stop for snorkeling there and then continue to our favorite spot - a shallow area close by the reef, that is just like a natural pool (great for non-swimmers as well)! Here we make a break to relax in the shallow warm water, while the crew prepares our famous Belizean buffet on board. Traditional Belizean dishes like stewed chicken and rice and beans with our Captain’s secret recipe BBQ fish! After lunch, we return South doing a second snorkel stop at Tres Cocos. Open bar featuring local rum drinks like rum punch and "panty rippers" is included all day.
