Belizean cuisine brings together an array of different cultures into one style of dining. From Mexican influences to Caribbean twists, flavours tend to be down-home and delicious. Some favourites tend to be the classics, like rice-and-beans or tamales, and vary to soups, stews, and fry-ups. One dish that is inarguably traditional are fry jacks, which are deep-fried triangles of dough that normally accompany breakfast or lunch. Of course, when you visit Ambergris Caye in particular, you must try some local fresh-caught fish, like lobster, grouper, or conch.
