If you are coming from Belize City with any of the water taxis or coming from Chetumal with the San Pedro Belize Express, you will make a right at the foot of the dock, walk a couple minutes to the corner of the Bambooze restaurant painted in bright orange & green and make a left , walk straight (NO TURNS) until you reach Sandros Restaurant which is painted in orange with a beige fence. At the corner of their fence you will make a right and look for gray gate with Beware of the dog sign. Our fence is a wire fence lined with palm leaves.If you are coming from Chetumal on the Water Jets International, we are a few steps away . At the foot of the dock , make a left and walk straight ahead, you will be walking right next to the water. Look ahead & you will see a Yellow with black Jaguar spots painted cabana and a large wooden gate to the right of the cabana. We will be expecting you there.Pause is located on the West side of the island on Pasero Street across from Sandros Restaurant and on its own secluded little beach away from the bustle of the tourist areas yet only a few minutes to the main street and to supermarkets, bank, bakery and everything else.
