Eating our way through San Pedro

Well one of the things we love to do besides diving and relaxing is EATING! We love checking out the different restaurants here...the locals faves are usually the best bet. Over the years I've made a lot of friends down here so usually gravitate towards their favorite haunts.

The ever amazing photographer Maya Papovic from Conch Creative took a fabulous family photo shoot of us on the beach this week and I picked her brain about some of her favorite places to eat. We won the photo shoot in the Saga Humane Society silent auction and let me tell you boy did we get our money's worth! Photos to follow as soon as we get them but be sure to check out Conch Creative's website if you're looking for a wedding or family photographer. She is simply amazing!

In any case, she loves some of the same places that we do and our newly discovered favorite restaurant this year is without a doubt El Fogon which I blogged about in an earlier post. It is bar none the two best dinners we've had so far! I had the seafood creole and coconut rice and my family had the Belizean chicken which had an amazing flavor!

Wild Mango's still tops the list of favorites but we prefer their lunch menu over dinner. Be sure to make reservations if you want to have dinner there.

we went to Wild Mango's for a celebration lunch after Jennifer completed her Padi Open water certification

you can't beat the ambiance and the view. A little tin roof covered porch with swaying palms right in front directly on the beach

Kids had giant smoothies!

Hoisting her celebration smoothie! Does she look like an official diver now?!!

Tommy had a fabulous mojito and I had a Belizean favorite, the panty ripper!

I'm really annoyed that I didn't take pics of the food but let me tell you the Mango's Mongo burrito is AMAZING and HUGE!! You must try it but go hungry!

I had the snapper tacos which were outstanding and I saw someone get an order of onion rings that looked so good that we ordered them as well. I don't know what kind of seasoning was used on them but I think they rank among the best if not absolute best I've ever had!!

Off to El Fogon last night for dinner for a second time so Tommy could try it out. It was met with high praise from my fuss budget husband!!

the menu is printed up on regular printer paper...nothing fancy here just great food!
The prices all include appetizer and dessert

Do be sure to check this place out. There's a reason is rated so high on Trip Advisor!

We are trying out a new place to us tonight...Aji's Tapas bar. Heard a lot about it so we're making the trek north to check it out!


  1. Glad you are enjoying the trip!

  2. Thanks for reading! I will post my final blog from the trip tomorrow. We love our island and can't wait to come back!!
