We visited Belize on a recent cruise. While there, we took an excursion to snorkel the reef and swim with sharks and stingrays. The whole family LOVED our excursion. Once that was finished, we returned to the port village to do a little shopping. This is were things went south. While we were shopping, somehow, my 15 year old daughter... More

This was 1 of stops while on our cruise. We had to be tendered in but that was fine. Once there, there are lots of shops, bars and eating places! We did do a tour while in the area with Belize Caribbean Tours; went and saw Monkeys (Bamboos). It was really a neat and memorable experience! The items at the... More

There were all types of different shops all in one convenient place. Clothing stores, jewelry stores, souvenir stores, eateries, and bars all together. Everything a tourist needs in one place

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.
