Nightlife in Punta Gorda Belize is relaxing; however there are a few bars with pool tables on some nights. Although they occasionally show sporting events at the Punta Gorda Sports Bar, it is actually a general nightspot with live bands, DJs, and karaoke nights.
Another alternative downtown is the Titanic Bar. If you prefer to go further out there is the funky Ocean View Bar, which has a big outside dock into the sea. Lastly, there is Waluco’s which is north of town; here there are live music jam sessions, a local Punta Rock band, or a Garífuna drumming once in a while. The waterfront is great if you enjoy long strolls in the evenings, and want to feel the light breezes blowing in from across the Bay. You can also spend your evenings at the local restaurants.
