Good touristy type shopping.

I liked it because I had never been to Belize City before. You can get great deals on things if you haggle.

Lots to buy!! There are a lot of little shops and restaraunts in the Tourist Village. We booked an excursion to go snorkeling here (not through the cruiseline) and we were not disappointed!

Just a bunch of tourist shops. Mostly T-shirts & hats. If it wasn't that we wanted to set foot at least once in this country I'd probably not have made the effort. There is an armed guard to get through if one ventures out into the city. Did not make us feel safe to see that. I will avoid cruise... More

This place has the run of the mill shops that every cruise ship port has, you really need to go out of the doors of the tourist village to get to see the real Belize, and shop in the local stores

The launch from our cruise ship took about 45 minutes. So to see land, and very colourful land at that, was great to see. After our day trip to Mayan ruins, we came back through the shops before getting back on the tender back to the ship. Good variety of items for purchase although prices looked high compared to items... More

If you do not have an excursion planned, this is a nice afternoon to absorb the Caribbean vibe. We had lots of sunshine and no plans, so we stopped in several shops and had a chocolate martini from the Moho Chocolate Shop. It was a chocolate lovers dream. You could purchase solid chocolate or powdered chocolate for baking. The aroma... More

We were not overly impressed by the village. But there is pretty good shopping, cheap cold beer and good food. The vendors trying to push you to sign up with them are extremely annoying, but as the day goes by they dwindle due to time restrictions for completing the shore excursion and still making it to the cruise ship!

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.
