The food is amazing, the drinks are out of this world—you must try the frozen coconut lime mojitos—and the customer service is fantastic! Very happy to be able to support NC natives abroad who chose the road less traveled. My new favorite spot in Belize!...More

Had a lovely lunch here. Used the wifi to plan our day and the people who worked here were very helpful too. I had a pork tamale and my companion had a salad and we both enjoyed our meals.

We found this place by accident after seeing several signs around town. It had a great atmosphere and the owner was very nice. The dip trio was delicious as well as the entrees. The price was reasonable. We will be back on our next visit!

We kept seeing signs all around town and finally stumbled upon Iguana Juan's. Neat location on the second floor so you can sit and chill and people watch from above. Our server Manny was awesome! Good food, even better drinks!

Description
Iguana Juan's features thoughtful burgers and killer vegetarian, along with a fusion of American and Central American flavors, awesome drinks (Bar in a Jar, anyone?) and live entertainment. Laugh it up at a stand up comedy show, or find your groove at our Reggae brunch. Eclectically decorated, overlooking the charm and excitement of San Pedro Town's "Back Street" - a great perch to see everything, "people watch" and take in the vibe of this cool, Central American island town. We are conveniently located upstairs, of an old building, on a back street, on an island in Central America-- Come find us!
