About the same as most port cities..

With Belize you have to take a tender over to the city which takes around 20 to 40 minutes. Once you get there you will find the typical tourist shops and some restaurants thrown... read more

Enjoyed the port. Quick shopping everything real close. People seemed real friendly. Port was quiet busy and seemed to be able to accommodate everyone.

The Belize Tourism Village is just that, it is a completely fake village that is only there for tourism. Much like a village at Epcot Center, the tourism village is a facade that is designed to make you think that you have "been there." By all means if you are just off the boat and have an hour to spend... More

Typical tourist trap This is where the cruise ships dump hundreds and hundreds of visitors and the Radisson Hotel's guests hang around. It's got American-style bars and eateries, duty-free shops, and small stores full of souvenirs. The only real Belizeans you'll meet here are the people who work there. In the streets outside there is a heavy police presence to... More

It's so pretty and there are so many shops to visit. It's a very tourist filled area, so not the best place for a taste of local character. But the real city is just right outside the gates!

It was closed most of the time we were there during Christmas. I believe they open only for trapping the tourists hoarding off cruise ships. Not much of a tourism village, but just souvenir shops for cruisers -- I would skip

Very clean, lots of shopping and lots of tours to sign up for. Didn't see any scam artists or people peddling for items. People were warm and friendly, everyone spoke english.

As this is the first stop off the cruise ship, there is not nearly enough time to see everything there. I must come back and spend more time on our next trip. Lots of shops to see, and local culture.

...it's a waste of time. Nothing really to see or do. Mostly identical stores selling identical tacky souvenirs. The whole process of getting into the place is a bit of a drag and the security was quite snippy if you weren't on a ship. Don't bother. Better restaurants and souvenirs elsewhere.

Thank kaybradj
