Type of place that only thousands of cruise ship visitors would love

Honestly, don't want to be negative but the shop owners in this complex need to step up their game because: 1. Locals told us, don't buy any jewelry there (all overpriced and many... read more

Unless you come from a cruise ship, don't waste your time here. We first tried to shop here on Sunday and were told they were closed until Wednesday when the cruise ships were in. We returned Wednesday only to go through airport-type security. They kept our passports and gave us stickers. Then, I tried to purchase $24 of nail stickers... More

Our cruise ship stopped in Belize City and we took a ferry from the ship to the dock. We had an excursion booked and had to find Terminal 4 where we were to meet. We had time to shop around before and after our trip. Music and fun were there and if you wanted to go out and do something,... More

Honestly, don't want to be negative but the shop owners in this complex need to step up their game because: 1. Locals told us, don't buy any jewelry there (all overpriced and many fake); and 2. The rest of their wares were the worst sort of cheap trinkets, woven bags, carved in China wood objects...We went there to spend some... More

We didn't spend a lot of time here. We were on a short time table and rushed through to meet our tour guide. On our way back, we got our passports stamped and headed down to our cruise ship dock. It looked nice. It was clean and busy, with lots of shopping.

We had a beautiful time in Belize while on our 2nd cruise with Carnival Cruise Line's Dream. The ships do not dock here and you have to be taken by smaller water craft to the ports. They are all similar to me , just places to spend some vacation money on arts, crafts and T-Shirts. We had a blast and... More

We had plans to go to Goff's Caye for the day but because of a terrible tendering process on Norwegian Getaway we did not have enough time. We wandered around the port and shopped then had cocktails at an outside bar. It was still a good day. It was better than working.

Set up specifically to cater for the cruise ship passengers who hit Belize on a daily basis, the tourism village is basically a duty free shopping mall. All the usual tat.

Your typical cruise ship terminal village, but still lots to do and is fun! I recommend buying the fresh coconuts and getting them filled with rum... if you tip well and come back for refills, they'll be extra generous ;)

Cut and dry tourist trap. Its a nice little area to wander but very expensive on certain items. We ended up just passing through to get back on our tender after our excursion.
