The Local Dining Guide
has a wide selection of restaurants ranging from inexpensive local spots to
restaurants that are rated among the finest in the world. Being surrounded by
blue ocean on all four sides, naturally Ambergris Caye is noted for its
seafood. Not a seafood lover...no problem! You'll find just about any kind of
dish to suit your taste buds.
Most of the cabanas at the resort have kitchenettes. For breakfast, usually people are on their own. Cereal, milk, juices, breads, and fresh fruit are sometimes provided for everyone to munch on. Some choose to stop past the local markets and get their own supply of breakfast foods. Because the focus of each morning is the devotion and then getting to the clinic sites, there is not an organized group outing for breakfast. If you are at Banana Bank for the morning, breakfast is usually served at the lodge before you head off to the clinic.
Lunch is very dependent on which clinic site each participant is located. If you are located at Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, Sarteneja, or one of the other sites located in a populated town, usually the group at that specific clinic site chooses a place to eat lunch. This typically consists of a local dive. At Banana Bank, the clinic is located about 30 minutes from the lodge. Around noontime, the women in the village usually bring over a huge pot of freshly made red beans and rice, chicken, slaw, and juice and here you will have the opportunity to try some homemade Belizean cuisine. Although some foods are safe to eat, you must use caution when trying home cooked meals. There are usually a few people at each clinic site who have been on the trip before, so allow them to make recommendations on places to eat and give guidance on what home-cooked things are okay to eat or drink.
Dinnertime is spent with the group. Most group participants are back at Ambergris Caye for
the evening. Others will be located on the mainland of Belize for an overnight
stay, such as Banana Bank, and the evening meal will be spent with the group
from your clinic site.
