Just left Belize on May 27th.The Palapa bar is great. Marcel is the best. Next time we are bringing him a DENVER Broncos hat. No Patriots lol. Great drinks and food. Shrimp tacos and fish tocos are the bomb. 👍You can snorkel or hang out in intert ubes. Watch the Tarpon at night. They are huge. Scott and Cindy

This place has it all. Good food and excellent service. The BBQ ribs are to die for. Ceviche is awesome too. Have fun with your friends or make new ones like we did!

So far, the best fish tacos, pina coladas, and live music on the island. Mikey, our man behind the bar, says he's called a bartender because Multitasking Ninja is not a job title. He's right! He's great

Great times at this bar and grill by the ocean. Actually in the ocean! A must to visit while in San Pedro for sure. Great music and relaxing breeze off the water.

We checked this place out after a night out at the other bars along the beach. Had some tasty appetizers and a great atmosphere. There was a live band playing and it really upped the mood. 10/10 would recommend.

Fun, big bar on the water. Can drink in water... they have inner tubes and will pass beers down to you in a bucket. Bring your sharpie! They allow people to "tag" on the wooden surfaces of the bar (which is almost every square inch of the place). Pretty good drinks, they have live music from time to time. Did... More

Cool location on the water and a great breeze on a hot day. Shrimp tacos and fish tacos were great. Would also recommend the Caribbean mojito! Seems like would have a good night life scene there. Very welcoming to visitors.

We had dinner and drinks here. Food was average but it's a fun spot. During the day there is an area you can float around on tubes and they will serve you drinks.
