Great location to look over the water, take a quick dip close to the deck (watch out for boats) with a cheap drink. We waited a long time to close out our tab during happy hour one day. But definitely try it out at some point!

Spent the day on Caye Calker with my wife. We stopped in for a drink and a snack around lunch. Friendly staff, good drinks and a reasonable bar menu for food with larger meals as daily specials (including lobster). Wonderful views, nice music and plenty of things to do including laying out on the dock, swimming in the channel, kayaking... More

The Lazy Lizard offers one of the best places in Caye Caulker to hang out, enjoy drinks and fully enjoy the go slow vibe. Go upstairs and take in the views of the split and people swimming and sun bathing.

This is the place to hang out during the day in Caye Caulker, the split is beautiful, but the food and drinks are expensive and there was no one waiting on tables during the two hour we were there.

Hi Gloria F, Thanks for your review! I will definitely pass on your comments about the slow table service. Odd to hear that since we have multiple wait staff working the tables and sun tanning crowd. Hope you make it back again soon to see all the big changes going on at the lazy lizard! More

This is a great place to people watch. We did not eat here only had beer. Service was ok. The view across the split and awesome chill out area makes this place.

Prior to arriving at the Lazy Lizard, I read and received numerous recommendations. I was told the Lazy Lizard was NOT to be missed. I was so looking forward to visiting. I arrived and did not find the place to be anything special aside from a bar on the water. Now the service was good. They have music playing and... More
