Belizean Pizza

We had all of our meals included at Pook’s Hill and we were very well fed. Each meal was eaten family style. The food was passed around and everyone sat at a long table together. This served as a great way to get to know the other people at the lodge. We met a group of friends who had come together from Colorado, an Adventure Life traveler who was traveling on his own and a man who looked incredibly like my father. We exchanged stories over breakfasts that mainly consisted of eggs, bacon or sausage, bread and fruit. Lunch was different each day and dinner was usually buffet style with dishes of rice, beans, meat and vegetables (always with something delicious for dessert). There was definitely no shortage of food!

Once we went to the beach the only meal we had included was breakfast. Each morning we would wake up and head down to the open air patio to have breakfast. From waffles topped with strawberries to omelets filled with whatever you liked the menu at Ramon’s Village was delicious. We went to the local grocery store near the resort to get food to pack for our lunches during our excursions, but for dinner we were a bit more adventurous. We were provided a list of different restaurant recommendations and after almost a week away from home both of us were craving pizza. We found a place on the list called Pepper Onis. We walked to the restaurant, ordered a pizza to go and headed back to Ramon’s. Since we weren’t sure how similar Belizean pizza was to American pizza we decided to go with what we thought was a safe option, a BBQ chicken pizza. We were very wrong. Whatever Belize considers to be BBQ sauce is very different from what we were familiar with! It was quite the shock and was one of the worst pizzas I have ever had. Luckily the next night redeemed our faith in the food on Ambergris Caye. We were both in the mood for Tacos and we went to Palapa Bar and Grill. It is an open air bar on the beach and they served us some amazing fish tacos. So if you are looking for a place to eat in Ambergris Caye I would give Palapa a try and stay very very far away from pizza!
