Unlike so many Caribbean destinations which have been overrun with U.S. based franchises, virtually all the businesses in downtown San Pedro are locally-owned and operated. Quaint eateries abound, offering every imaginable cuisine, along with the many tantalizing local specialties offered by the street food vendors. Delights abound from wonderful homemade ice cream shops to fresh caught seafood to the local speciality of chicken and rice.
Three days a week, there is a market where local artists and craftspeople set up booths and tables filled with local sculpture, jewelry, brightly-colored fabrics, scarfs, sculptures, and ceramics. Only the hardiest of shoppers can see it all in a single day, most will have to return.
San Pedro Town’s vibrant night life includes an eclectic array of bars offering music ranging from techno, rap and improvisational music. You can also enjoy a more traditional watering hole such as the Crazy Canuck, founded by a Canadian expat couple more than 20 years ago.
With all there is to do in San Pedro Town it is no wonder Ambergris Caye recently earned the title of the fastest growing tourism sector in the Americas.
You will never be far away from the action as the Royal Kahal Beachfront Suites resort is located just five minutes away from the downtown San Pedro Town area by complimentary resort bicycle, or a relaxing ten-minute walk from the door of your suite.
