We went into town from our cruise ship and just wanted to hang out, "sittin' by the dock of the bay." We wanted to try traditional food, which was really good, and Bellikin Beer, also pretty good. A perfect place to relax and people watch.

Strawberry daqs were okay. Not great at all. The people were friendly. We stopped mainly for the WiFi (that worked very well!) Because no one else had working WiFi that we could tell. Vacation usually means no WiFi, but when you leave a whole farm back home... You must check on things!! Minimum of $5 per device on the WiFi.... More

you can sit for hours just taking in all the sun and fun of the Tourist Village. The Lilly Pad is a great place to chat and meet new friends coming and going.

My husband and I actually visited the Pirate Bar on the other end of the terminal. Belize City itself was not all that exciting, but we enjoyed a few hours at the bar. We spent most of our time talking with Cate about her move to Belize and owning the bars. Cate was very nice and very informative about the... More

We were in Belize for a day off the Carnival Liberty. Cate's Lilly Pad was a lovely refuge from the hawkers and tourist shops and she made us some fantastic margaritas. Cate was full of local information which we used to our advantage later on. She was very easy to talk to and I felt completely at home. We didn't... More

We went to Belize via the Carnival Legend cruise and had our shore excursion cancelled due to weather. We wandered about and came upon a litlle bar on the Pier with shops and instantly knew where we were going to spend the day. The owner Cate was so friendly and informative with tidbits about Belize and our possibly retiring there... More
