If this is all you see of Belize, you never saw Belize. It's very clear that people who are not on a cruise are not very welcome. It's very touristy and pricey. Belize is a beautiful, safe and interesting place so please don't waste too much time in this area. Get out and explore and find a truer experience that... More

Good service-seem to run on schedule. There are two. The one is a lot larger and probably best for longer trips-like to Ambergius Caye for example. I took the smaller (and slightly cheaper) one to Cauker Cay. They both have schedules and actually, each seems to go to most of the same places. If you miss one, you can walk... More

The Tourism Village is mostly a cruise port for the ships that are coming in and it does offer great scenery, some shopping and food/beverage options. Grab a Belikin is the local brew of Belize and talk to some locals or other tourist. This area is where most excursions leave from and you can find some great independent vendors around... More

Once you get through the village go to the backside of the building- there are small stalls selling tourist trinkets. Find the guy selling coconuts to drink, they are iced down. He cuts the top off with a machete puts a straw in it, hands you a bottle of rum and a lime and you pour how much rum you... More

We visited on Thursday, January 29, 2015, while on a Royal Caribbean cruise. The ship is at anchor about 20 minutes away and we were tendered in a small boat to Belize City. This is an average tourist stop. Many souvenir shops, etc. We did stop at a restaurant, The Bearded Clam, right on the water. Two Belikin beers for... More

It was like evey cruise port. The stores and the proces are the same in every port. It is alway better to leave the area to get original articles that are not massed produced.

This is much like any other tourism hot spot for shopping....with a little bit of everything thrown in. I did purchase a beautiful hand embroidered skirt for a good price. They will haggle a bit with you, so be prepared for that. Convenient to the cruise ships, as your tender will pick up and drop you here.

This area was developed for the purpose of separating cash from cruise passengers to the local economy. There are many shops selling all types of tourist things to show you were in Belize. There are high end overpriced jewel stores from one end to the other. There are a few bars build over the water where one can get a... More
