Nightlife in San Pedro

If you’re coming to San Pedro for any amount of time, there’s a chance that at least one night you’ll want to hit the town! Lucky for you, there is no shortage of things to do from family friendly games to all night dance parties.

Family Friendly Fun

One of the biggest questions asked is what is there for the kids to do? Luckily, there are plenty options! One can’t miss activity is the Thursday night “Chicken Drop” held at Wahoo’s Lounge near Central Park. Buy a square and see if the chicken “drops” on your square! Chicken Drop goes from 5:00 PM until midnight.

Another fun island favorite activity is the Tuesday night Crab Races at Crazy Canucks, located on the beachfront of the future Marriott Residences. Select the crab you think is the fastest for $5BZ, give him or her a name, and watch as they make their way through the obstacle course in an attempt to win you prizes including cash and gift certificates to island restaurants! Fair warning – the names can get a little racy as the night goes on, so if you have younger kids, its best to come for the early races at 6:30.

And last, but certainly not least, is The Truck Stop, which hosts a movie night on Wednesdays, trivia on Thursdays, Family Feud on Fridays, and family movie night on Saturdays. In addition to the nightly events, The Truck Stop also has a swimming pool, cornhole, giant Jenga and Connect Four, as well as a variety of board games.

Sophisticated Night Out

If you’re looking for a tamer night out on the town to enjoy with that special someone or a group of friends, look no further than Wine De Vine, located midway between the Grand Baymen Gardens and the Tropic Air terminal. Wine De Vine offers the islands widest variety of wines, as well as delicious meats and cheeses, which can be made into a delicious platter along with crackers, olives, and various spreads. Wine de Vine hosts $10 Tuesdays as well as Tasting Thursdays (three wines for $20 BZ), and their Friday Night Social. Their comfortable seating area is a great place to mingle with friends or make some new ones.

North of the bridge, Marbucks Coffee House holds their weekly “Wine Down” event every Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 PM. Guests can enjoy wine, beer, or sangria by the glass, along with complimentary appetizers and live music.

Dance All Night

For those looking to dance the night away, there are some great options. The newly opened Sunset Lounge, located on the roof of Sancas Plaza (across from Tropic Air), is an open-air lounge, complete with a dancefloor and DJ’s Wednesday through Saturday nights from 5 PM until midnight.

If midnight is too early to call it a night and you’re ready to keep on dancing, head over to either Jaguars Temple Club or Daddy Rock nightclubs, both located in Central Park. Both places get the party started around midnight and are open into the wee hours of the morning. 

Whatever your preference is, you’re certain to find something that is your speed and will provide you with an enjoyable night out!  To plan your next vacation to beautiful Ambergris Cayeplease click here.
