The village is a small collection of souvenir shops and small restaurants, worth visiting only if you are taking a water taxi to Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye or if you are on a cruse ship and in Belize for a short day trip. Be aware that some of the craft souvenirs sold here are made in Guatemala or elsewhere.

The village is nice but it's like a glamorized straw market. Same merchandise everywhere nothing really different. Shoppers heaven for women because nice purses are everywhere. We were told not to go out the gates but you should totally go outside the gates. I would love to visit Belize again. The experience was so pleasant. The tours purchased in port... More

All the stores sell more or less the same merchandize, not an interesting place to visit at all. We were told that it is not safe to go outside of the tourist area.

The village is nice, but it definitely does not correspond with the reality beyond its fences. If you come to Belize City you should go out to the streets at least for a while to see the real life here, not only the candyfloss here.

Fun place to visit, and yes, I'd love to live here. Very nice people, and actually some reasonable prices in spite of it being a tourist place. Nice country, and nice people.

The village for shopping was a great idea. not having to make your way in downtown, not knowing the people at all, or which roads were safe, or unsafe -- made this a very nice way to spend time shopping, since time was limited. We found everything we needed and then some, of course. Good buys -- too. I think... More

This is where all the cruise ships tender into. It is very touristy with chincy tourist trap type shops, but it is very safe. Right outside of the wall is not so safe. There are a lot of random citizens that hang out outside of the wall and wait for tourists to come out. When I was there, I saw... More
