glazed leg of lamb Guava Limb Café , Cayo Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International Living​Cayo has a combination of international and local restaurants since the Cayo District caters to a wide array of palates. We have typical street food that you could find anywhere in the world. We have low to mid range restaurants with plastic chairs and tables and we have some posh dining that offers premium cut steaks and so forth. 
 
Our hotel owns a small restaurant in San Ignacio town called the Guava Limb Café which is frequented by expats. We have a fusion of local and international cuisine. We offer different kinds of pastas and a lot of burgers. In San Ignacio Town, we have restaurants that cater to different groups of people. For expats and tourists, I recommend Ko-Ox Han nah (also called Hannah’s), the Guava Limb Café, Hode’s Place, and Cenaida’s, which is a small café that is very popular for their local food but they also cater to groups of tourists. 
 
At the Guava Limb Café, you could get a good size burger with fries and drinks for about US $10. It’s not cheap but I see lots of expats come here to enjoy the food. The Guava Limb Café was a colonial house that was renovated and now it still has the bohemian theme to it. It has bohemian windows and wooden fixtures and furniture. It has a lot of history and it’s located in the main road of San Ignacio Town.
 
Hannah’s is one of the more mature restaurants in town. It mostly caters to tourists and expats. They have more game meat like lamb, which is one of their more popular dishes. They source their own meat and they also sell the meat at the restaurant. Hannah’s is not cheap either. A plate at Hannah’s would run you about $10 to $15 as well. 
 
Hode’s Place is more recommended for expats with families. A plate of food at Hode’s costs about $20 up to $40, if you order a steak or something similar. They have an arcade room and they have a very big space. They have swings for the kids so it’s a nice place for families to dine in.
 
Street food in San Ignacio like hotdogs would cost you about $1.25. We have the $1 tacos, which is corn tortilla with pork meat or beef. We also have the simpler tacos with corn tortilla and chicken, which would cost about three for $1.

Burns Ave in San Ignacio, Belize – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are lots of restaurants in the Cayo District in Belize.  You could get upscale to just real simple food. You could get American dishes, Italian, European, Caribbean, local Belizeans, and of course, Hispanic food.
 
This isn’t only in Belmopan, the capital.  A lot of the dining that I’m writing about is in the town of San Ignacio.
 
The food here is very diversified. You could go to a restaurant that’s enclosed with air conditioning, or one with outdoor dining, a family type setting, or a lounge restaurant bar.  The restaurants in San Ignacio are all clustered in a very tight area. It’s just like when you're in a hotel strip and you could walk from hotel to hotel.  In San Ignacio you could walk from restaurant to restaurant.
 
The restaurants are very clean; you won't have any problems. As far as the cost, you won't have to pay one third of what you would pay in the US.
