We couldn’t agree more that when you are on Ambergris Caye – you just have to have seafood! Our guests really gravitate towards the blacked dishes as they are outstanding! And your drink choice couldn’t be better with the dish – a refreshing pineapple mojito....More

We like to think of our location as close enough to town to reach in case our guests want some extra activity, but far enough away to truly have some rest and relaxation. And in Palmilla’s case, a lovely beachfront experience. We’re happy to hear...More

Average $100-120 BZ ($50-60 USD) per person with drinks at a top restaurant. You can eat for much less and have an exquisite meal at many of the local establishments.
