If your cruise stops in Belize, either go cave tubing to to the natural preserve that's about 30 miles away or do snorkeling, but DON'T stay in the city, it's dirty and ugly, it's a shame they don't take care of it... Also when booking activities, don't do it with Carnival or with the people that are waiting at the... More

Everyone getting off a cruise ship has to go through this area. So if you have no courage to venture out you are stuck with the tons of tourists, shopping at higher prices in a area that is so loud you can't think. We walked all over the island and not once did I feel unsafe. But don't wear your... More

Places to eat and drink and chat to locals, place to "Chill" All the normal touristy stuff we found out a lot about the history of the Island.

Lots of places to spend your money and lots of tourist things to buy. What more can I say. We escaped by buying a pair of earrings and a Christmas tree ornament.

Having been to Belize many times. This is the only safe area to shop at the port. Please do not plan to walk out the gates to shop...it is not safe. There are many great excursions they the ship...and at this port I would only book thru the ship. The shopping area has many unique stores and places to get... More

I visited with a group of about 15. The vendors were all friendly. We enjoyed some lovely rum punch at the very first bar. They offer Wifi with any purchase of $10. There's a taxi driver by the name of Phillip. He gave us a great tour of the city.

Zac Brown has a song named "Where the Boat Leaves From" that fits this little village to a tee. As the giant ships can't come in to tie up, the view is unobstructed by white steel and the sea breeze can find you sitting in the bar. Near by are dozens of shops that will sell you things you really... More

We visited the city through the Carnival Cruise ship . The impression I got is that the city is very little prepared to receive tourists , no taxis near the port , the Village of tourists has the same stores of other cruise stops , transportation for tourists is done with train sets that look like chariots . The people... More

My understanding is that this shopping area is run by Carnival Cruise lines. The stores are very similar to other stores in the ports they stop in. Very few local crafts and items for sale. There are plenty of places to get a bite to eat or a drink. Unless you go on a cruise offered excursion you are encouraged... More
