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

Name of the place says it all: Tourism Village. Lots of shops to check out if you are looking to buy some souvenirs - typical things. There is one store on the way out at the northeast end that's worth checking out; a chocolate store. Also at the SE end of the pier there is a small BBQ place, grab... More

My family wasnt impressed...it felt like each store was selling knock off designer bags, sunglasses, and anything china sells. Sadly...the prices were not cheap compared to the real things.

The place to find what you need and don't need! This place is similar to many other ports - not good and not bad. Areas just outside the gates can be iffy so this is the place to do your shopping. You can find locally crafted art as well as all the typical stuff. Of course you can get a... More
