Aji Tapas Bar & Restaurant

Mediterranean in Ambergris Caye

If you're in the mood for romance, book a table at this magical Mediterranean hideaway. Surrounded by swaying palms, the dining area is only steps from the sea. The menu features a few classic tapas (such as garlic shrimp or bacon-wrapped dates), as well as some delectable seafood dishes (including highly recommended paella). Personalized service completes the delightful experience.

There's also a pool, and the bar is open until 10pm on weekends. There are also accommodations now: the seven units are adorably furnished and decorated (from BZ$350). They have air-con, kitchenettes or kitchens, cable TV and wifi. Some have ocean views, others have lagoon views. Keep your eyes peeled for crocodiles.
