As the title implies, I am not a fan of Tourism Village. I prefer the rest of Belize City, the open air markets a few blocks away and the friendly people of the city. Having said that, I like to stop in the Wet Lizard for a Belikin Stout and Chips & Salsa, the salsa is interestingly different!

Nice place though a bit over the top for my tatse. Seemed a little to exclusive with rates to match but on the whole a good variety of products and services to match peoples interests.

Nothing to see or to do here. Overcrowded, very loud music, cheap crafts produced in China. Take a trip outside and buy authentic crafts from Belize.

Not somewhere I'd like to spend a lot of time. A lot of shady characters peddling junk, taking the attention from the few honest vendors there. Completely designed to remove money from the pockets of gullible cruisers.

Cruise ships cannot dock in Belize and they hire tenders (boats that hold 40 or more passengers) to take cruisers to the Belize Tourism Village. It is free to take the tender there and return, and there is no requirement to take the same tender back to the ship. We just returned from a Princess (Emerald) cruise and took two... More

We tendered from our cruise ship to this location, then found a local city tour for $20. They ask for $25 but will accept $20. Spent 90 minutes driving and stopping at points of interest throughout the city. Well worth the $20 to see various parts of the city.

Belize has done a nice job of providing tourism services in a central location. The restrooms are clean, the locals are very nice and helpful. Lots of shops and restaurants in a compact area. I booked excursions prior to arrival but you could easily find a tour at the village I

We were on a Princess Cruise and Belize City was the stop. The cruise lines were not allowed to use their tenders to bring passengers into the port. I think that the local government was making them use local contractors. We had to ride with local contractors in rather iffy boats. I saw one ski boat sized craft with about... More
