This is a typical, sanitized shopping area in a foreign port. They've got the usual Diamonds International store as well as others. It really is no reflection on the country of Belize at all. The music was deafening at times so we tried to avoid those areas. As another reviewer mentioned, it's difficult to get out of the compound. You... More

I swear from the moment you walk towards this place people are bothering you to buy something, be it a bus ticket, snack, souvenir. It's not just one person, but a non stop onslaught of people. Honestly, I would not come back here again, and would pay to just fly out to the islands to avoid this mess of a... More

This is your typical tourism village with the typical shops (hello Diamonds international). It has a lot of shops and a number of places to eat. Its nice if you want to get off the ship for a while and look around, but not take an excursion. No real culture areas though. We felt safe in this area.

Tourism Village is an absolute trap of fake luxury brands, expensive souvenirs, and people trying to sell you things. Everywhere you look there are fake Gucci, Coach, Michael Kors, and Oakleys being passed off as the real thing. Absolutely do not buy anything here that is purporting to be a luxury brand. The jewelry looks nice but is pricey, and... More

Old Belize's a great spot located just outside the city. It has a great beach area that has a water slide, rope to jump in the water and water jumping jack. It has music, lounge chairs and bar. It also has a restaurant that has Belizean food and international food and a bar. it also has a gift shop. A... More

We thought we would stop and have a quick lunch but cut it short due to the music. The music was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. Everyone in the village take US dollars.

Same cruise port shopping that you find everywhere else. MOHO chocolate was a bright spot! Vendors were rude at spots when we weren't interested in looking in their stores.

This is basically the same crappy stuff that you can get at any place in the Caribbean . Not worth much time there. Get out of there and out to the real Belize just steps away

This is a very good area to pickup souvenirs, a little more expensive here but very clean and safe. We had to catch a tinder back to our ship so we didn't have a lot of time here.
