In Activities, Dining, Festival

Visitors to Belize often wonder what the one dish that they need to try in Belize would be. But why try just one?

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.
