What a typical Friday night out looks like in Placencia, Belize!

We got a bit of a later start Friday night due to our construction, but the typical place many people start their night out at is at Yoli's. Yoli's is kind of tough to find, but well worth it once you do! It is a quintessential Palapa Bar over the water, and they have a live fun Jimmy Buffett-style band called the Lost Reefers there, starting at 3 or 4 on Fridays. We got there about 7 and had some quick fun:

Then we walked over to Mojo's, just a quick walk. Again we missed "happy hour and a half" which is 5-6:30. They also had fun live music on their little balcony, which is great for people watching.....

Next we went to Pickled Parrot. Eugene and Lynn can always be found having a good time, and their bar is as fun Caribbean as it gets....
The two Pickled Parrot dogs, Mia and Ziggy, are always around :)

Finally we hit Tipsy Tuna, where we stayed the rest of the night. There was live music here too, people dancing, and is right next door to Barefoot Bar, which is closed for a few more days.

You can also have fun just stopping at grocery stores, buying a beer, and wandering around....this is such a foreign concept to Americans as you aren't allowed open container in the US - one of the MANY great reasons it is fun to go out here! The locals are friendly, and this little guy wanted to show us the smallest frog I've ever seen, that he had just caught:

Even in low season fun is all around!


  1. I absolutely love your blog and the info you share as an ex-pat 'livin' the life'! Tell me, do you know of any non-bar related activities to do in the evening? :)

    1. Lol yes there are plenty....there are many non drinkers here and you see them enjoying leisurely dinners, watching local sports at the field, hanging out on the beach, walking the village,volunteering with Rotary, bowling, and much more....good place to check out is the open Facebook group Placencia What's Happening...that's where we all go to find out what is happening!!
