Breakfast at Casa del Caballo Blanco is an adventure among the various cultures that have peopled the western portion of Belize. Experience Mayan food prepared in centuries old Kekchi, Mopan and Yucatecan traditions, creole foods combining exotic Hispanic and Caribbean flavors; all with foods grown and prepared locally by Belizeans.
Breakfast is served daily in our thatch-roofed dining room constructed in the same style as the cabana accommodations. Foods obtained from local growers, the gardens of Casa del Caballo Blanco, and the local marketplace are prepared fresh daily.
Meals and Dishes
The flavors of Belize are as varied as the people and customs that have woven the tapestry of its foodways. The abundance of the Caribbean is the highlight of the food available along the coast. On the interior, in Western Cayo, the kitchens look to Mayan, Hispanic and Creole cooking traditions. Casa's kitchen has borrowed from each and the food is as colorful and varied as the vibrant Guatemalan textiles that grace our tables.
Breakfast at Casa del Caballo Blanco is typically served early to accommodate the guests departing on tours and day-trips. Hot Guatemalan coffees, an excellent start to the day, or teas of your choice are available at sunrise. Breakfast includes fresh fruit juice, made on site, and fresh fruit from local growers or from Casa's own gardens, such as apple-bananas from the plantation just beyond the dining room. Each morning the cook prepares either fresh flour tortillas, Johnny cakes (a flour biscuit), or fry-jacks the Belizian version of the sopapilla -to accompany eggs and sausage, bacon or ham. A Belizean breakfast is not complete without refried black beans, often referred to as 'Belizean chocolate'. Breakfast is complimentary with each nights stay for all members of the party.
Lunches will be prepared, by special order in advance, for guests participating in day trips to the interior where food may not be available. Typically, tours and day trips provide lunch to participants or provide an opportunity for guests to sample the local fare. Lunches are available with advance request and are $15.75 usd with a 10% Service Charge.
