The Belize Tourism Village was very unique. The actual village was probably the nicest area that I witnessed in Belize. The rest of the city is in disarray and stricken with poverty. I wouldn't recommend traveling outside the tourism area without a tour guide. However if you are looking for shopping and unique items, the village as many interesting shops... More

This was the second stop on our cruise. We didn't book an excursion and decided that we would just get a cab and go to the beach. We were told that it was only 5 minutes away. When we got to the front, the guy wanted $30/person. so for the 5 of us it would've been $150! They are crooks!... More

Belize City is a beautiful city. It has great history and culture. The Tourism Village is very touristy. Same shops you can find in other major ports like Cozumel or Costa Maya. Outside the walls of the port is a bustling city which is worth walking around and exploring.

Now been three times. Great place, lovely beaches, especially where the posh tours take you. Great jungle not far inland. This time we took a walk into the old town to see what life was really about. Challenging !!!!

Family Loved the Cave tubing! Such a fun adventure - we would do it in a heart beat, there were 6 in our party ages 6 - 62 Would completely do it again, we also had time to shop at the pier which was fun, but we felt rushed!

Just another place were you can be ripped off for your hard earned cash. Prices are over-inflated and even though everyone are nice, all they want is your money. Plain and simple. Tourist trap. Travel to downtown Belize City and other points where you can save a few bucks. It's safe during the day, but not once the sun goes... More

If you enjoy being hustled this is a 5 star port for you, second only to Jamaica. Drugs abound outside the Village and it is NOT safe to go into town on your own. Prices are higher than average and selection the same in most stores and booths. Local color is nice and the weather super.

Visited Belize City from a cruise ship. We ended up taking a horse drawn carriage through the city which was a lot of fun. We were able to see a lot of the historical sights in the city and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The carriage ride was $40.00 for all 4 of us and our driver was very... More

We enjoyed our stroll around the Tourism Village. There is a nice variety of different shops and we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. My grandson wanted to send some post cards home so we found a small gift shop with a nice selection. When we asked the clerk where we could get stamps and mail them,... More
