Eating out in San Pedro
Eating in San Pedro can be as expensive as anywhere else in the world with some very high end restaurants within resorts and in numerous locations scattered around the Island. If you are on a budget you can pick up local food at very reasonable prices, such as tacos or parnades start from $1 BZE. A plate; of rice and beans with chicken or fish for around $10 BZE . Invariably lunch is cheaper than dinner. Having lunch at the more expensive venues can be a good way to sample the menus on offer and get a personal feel for the prices for the duration of your stay. If you don't mind bar food then meals at bars are reasonably priced and are the same day or night.
The main local Beers consist of Belikin and Lighthouse which you will find on sale everywhere. Most bars charge around $5 per bottle but if purchased direct from the Manufacturers (Boeing & Boeing) in town, prices can be as low as $2.75 . There are a number of local spirits including Rum, Brandy, Vodka, Anise & Peppermint Liqueur to name a few. Money is well spent on Belize's well known brands, Old Masters and Travellers. There are an abundant array of Local wines made from various berries and seeds with Cashew wine being a favourite. A few locally made wines retailed on the streets will cost very little and come in unlabelled bottles. Probably the largest local winery would be Bel mar located in Belize city where wine will set you back a modest $20. For imported wines expect to pay $30 BZE and upwards for brands like Gallos and Barefoot.
