In a country where diversity reigns you are bound to witness an array of culinary treats from different regions. There is no true or authentic Belizean cuisine since for generations locals have adapted Mexican, Spanish, Caribbean, Mayan and African influences into their cooking.
Belizeans love their meat with lots of varieties to choose from. Go for dinner and order a Cochinita Pibil, a slow-roasted pork dish which is cooked over firewood in a clay oven. This succulent dish is seasoned with annatto seed paste, fresh onion, tomato, cilantro, and Habanero pepper sauce.
If you are a liquor enthusiast, wash the delicious meal down with a unique wine called the Cashew and Craboo Wine. This wine is made with fermented cashew fruit and is sometimes infused with the flavors of mango and blackberry.
