The shops were clean, air conditioned, and well stocked even in April near the end of the season. I bought one tank top from a vendor who was very friendly and acted like she really wanted my business, unlike some of the other ports. These shops are cruise ship controlled, i.e., expensive for the vendors to rent but fenced off... More

I have not come into Belize City via a cruise ship but what the government has done is to make these pretty little buildings vendors can rent for something like $1-2,000BZ/Month when previously most street vendors were curbside paying no rent. It was a nice attempt but those tourists generally go straight to the tour they signed up for on... More

We went to tourism village I thought it was ok. Venders on the street were nice but only a few venders and we did go on a cruise ship day in the morning. Lots of people begging. When we went into the stop where the shopping was for the cruise ships. Many stores would NOT let us buy because we... More

The tourism village is about average compared to most of the Caribbean cruise ship ports. Typical souvenir shops with plenty of knock-off designer merchandise. We met our excursion tour bus there and that was the highlight.

This was our second trip to Belize City via a cruise ship stop over. There was not much to do, but tour the city, and back to the Tourism Village where we did some souvenir shopping. There might be places of interest; however what we saw on that city tour was not impressive.

My wife & I arrived on the Carnival Magic cruise ship and were tendered to the docks. We hadn't planned an excursion in Belize since most of them were more strenuous then we wanted due to my wife's rehab. from a recent injury. However, we wanted to say we had actually set foot in the country, not just viewed it... More

Belize is a beautiful island with much to offer. We were sad our excursion to the ruins was canceled but we enjoyed our time in Belize City. We found a talent private tour guide who took on a trip through the city center and coastal area. Then we returned to the Tourism Village where we purchased some beautiful mahogany pieces... More

Diamonds Internationals everywhere....and other non-local shops. This is not the true Belize. However, I don't think there's much shopping available elsewhere.

Don't shop in this village. A select few have a "table" to sell their wares but the prices are high and jacked up. Buy from locals just outside the village instead.
