Raoul's Rose Garden

Raoul's was a whorehouse located on the outskirts of Ladyville, Belize City. To get there, one must go past Mark's Bar on the Price Barracks Road, then turn right at the end and keep going. It takes 5 minutes in a cab, which you can pick up just outside the camp gates.

In 2011 it burned to the ground:

It is - above all else - a friendly, cheap and efficient knocking shop - and one of legendary status. Some madmen even married their mounts! Raoul's was the only knocking shop to feature on a BATCO vocab card. The ladies range from large and well appointed Mexican types to utterly stunning Guatamalans - all are heavily STD'd and shouldn't be touched. It is also worth pointing out that traditional Catholic views still prevail, so think twice about trying to procure a girl if you are a lesbian - they can and do get fairly uppity about it.

Prices are 'low low low' that you can afford - it was/still is a reasonable place to go for a few beers and also, unusually for a brothel, sells bright yellow T-shirts proclaiming: Raoul's Rose Garden - The Best Little Whorehouse in Central America. Double Green Stamps Every Saturday. They also have 'Security' written on the back in large letters. They are this season's 'must have'! They cost BZ$20 (about £5). A beer will also set you back BZ$5, as will entry. Sexual acts cost anywhere from BZ$5 for a handjob up to BZ$500 (£125 ish) for an all nighter.

The 'club' has a large open bar area and a smaller stage area. The music is varied and the girls basically dance incompetently to it. Mass gatherings of soldiers all dancing away to it are frowned upon as the management (fairly) feels that people should be looking at the chicks, not the Squaddie Two Step. With a good crowd at your back, this is the best place to go out, get pissed and have a great time, in the immediate area.

One used to be able to get a half-decent jump for around a tenner, however current exchange rates mean that the cost is now about £15 for a shag, probably as close as any Squaddie will get to Valhallah.
