“Nothing to see here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

A bunch of shops at the pier, selling odd, but not interesting, stuff that could have (and probably did) come from anywhere.
Not even worth walking through.

“Great shopping experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

People are friendly and great prices even without dealing! Pretty beach wraps for 10 dollars! Music everywhere! Variety of wooden puzzle animals at one shop were totally tempting!

“Something to see if you happen to have time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We did a day trip from the Caye and hit the zoo, zip line, and cave tube. On the way back we stopped here to kill time before our flight back over which is usually around 5:30pm. This is simply a place to stop and get a beer, check out the trinkets and see some stuff about the area. No, I would not go out of my way to go here but it is along the way back to the airport so again something to do to kill some time.

“Visit MOHO Chocolate Factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

This is the place to pick up some unique souvenirs that are tasty and support sustainable, organic business in Belize. They have a tour that shows you each step of chocolate making from seed to the chocolate bar, and they have both milk and dark chocolate samples with interesting flavors like lime and salt, chili, and the traditional additions. After the tour, you get to make three chocolate bars in flavors you choose. They also have milkshakes and other chocolate libations, including a bar. In addition to edibles, they have interesting soaps, scrubs,and articles made from coconut and cacao butter that support local businesses and promote eco awareness. Worth every penny.

“WASTE OF TIME”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

The prices are much higher than what I easily found in nearby stores in Belize City. And surprisingly the selections are not as good in the Tourism Village. The constant shouting out and pressure by vendors is also not as appealing as going into a nearby store in the city and having a sales person assist you politely.
