2. Eat some local food

For seafood, see #3, but for the truly local fare, you have to try all of the following:

A. Breakfast โ€“ Tacos! No, no, not those kinds of tacos, Belizean tacos: soft corn tortillas filled with chicken or pork and topped with โ€œsecretโ€ sauce/salsa, and then rolled. EVERY Belizean swears by โ€œtheirโ€ taco vendor so find a local, get up early, and order a lot.

B. Lunch โ€“ Lunch can be a variety of different things but, on weekends, and primarily during the celebrations, find yourself a good barbecue. Barbecued what? CHICKEN, what else? Although some chefs have started to barbecue steak and other meats, chicken is your best bet.

C. Dinner โ€“ Chinese food. Chon Saan Palace is my go-to restaurant. Try this and donโ€™t be shy: fried chicken with STEAK sauce. Like I said, donโ€™t be shy!
