Belize: Palapa Bar (aka the greatest place on earth)

Our awesome friend Cesar tipped us off to the greatest little slice of heaven, the Palapa Bar.  This gem is located on the island of Ambergris Caye, a little north of San Pedro town.  It was about a 20 minute bike ride for us and totally worth it!

The Palapa Bar

Yes, it's picturesque and on the water, but that's not even the greatest part.  Did you read the sign carefully?  "...Float in our inner tubes & get drinks by the bucket".  Say What?!  

This place will let you sit in one of the inner tubes that are tethered to the posts around the bar, and they will LOWER YOU BUCKETS OF BEER to drink while you are floating.  I am not even kidding.  I think it's the greatest invention since the wheel.

We took the opportunity to leave our mark on the bar, just like everyone before us:
