    Gilroy at Altun Ha Mayan Ruins did an amazing job! I loved the history, personal stories and he took photos for us as we climbed the ruins. We just did the ruins on our own and not part of a tour and Gilroy took great care of us and made it a fun adventure! Highly recommend him!!

    As had been the case at the national museums & national palaces visited elsewhere in South & Central Americas (with or without actually being called as those for history), it was my initial expectation of this museum to be one for the national history but which instead turned out to be some "multi-themed" kind of museum with yes history as one of the themes (specifically the colonial history with an "emphasis on slavery" as can be learned from a number of big info displays & also to see some text-and-sketch depictions of piracy in the colonial time) but also including non-history themes from modern art (not too impressive of a collection of "small paintings" though) to Mayan archaeology (just fairly few artifacts in scattered glass cases) to ecology as relating to birds & insects which are native to the country (some different species in limited numbers but some stuffed birds quite impressive to look at) with each theme just kind of "lightly touched on", I would say, so just not much time is needed to cover the two levels of this museum. And so actually, more than by the pretty average interior, I was impressed by an "outward grandness" of this long rectangular heritage-styled building with a nice lawn in front for a great view from either end of the building (definitely on a smaller scale but generally in a similar style as the Palacio Nacionals elsewhere in Central America such as those of Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala & Mexico).

    And not too close to this museum but just on the same side of the Creek are "2 landmarks" of the country, namely Baron Bliss Lighthouse & the colorful 'Belize' sign (at a "serene location" right by the sea should not be missed for some great pics not just with one but with both landmarks in "the same pic"). .

    A quick stop here to document your Belize visit for a social media post is a must. Take a pic from behind the palms adds character and depth.

    Process for ticket purchase was good but, the cost was little higher than we expected. Boarding went smoothly and passengers were well behaved. Staff were very helpful.

    Just one of a "modest stature" is how I would describe this brick cathedral (with not two but just one tower and no high & wide front facade or such) but which yet is a charming one which I would say is also in part due to its "nice & neat" grounds (mainly a small lawn but also like a mini-garden with a pathway along the edge which goes all the way around the Cathedral). And yes, after the walk around the building & taking a peek inside from the entrance was just heading back out due to the admission (which I never had to pay on my cathedral visits except at some big cathedrals with museums & such inside which I'm quite sure is not the case inside this one).

    And actually just across the street from one side of this cathedral is the Government House which is a 2-storied beautiful heritage building with a spacious front lawn & a not-too-high lovely fence (but closed to public at the time due to some renovation or such going on). And also nearby, at just about a 5-minute walk from this cathedral (by heading back along the street between this cathedral & the Government House in the direction of downtown but a right turn shortly after leaving) is the waterfront area like a "long promenade" from which there's a view of both the Creek & the sea beyond (from near one end of the promenade).

    This was something I never thought I would do but am glad I did it. The tour guide was absolutely amazing - calm, patient, and considerate. He was a good speaker and we all had an excellent time.

    It was on time and it was fast. There is a small fee. There is a schedule for all taxis to guide your purchases.

    We only went to the restaurant here. It was an easy place to stop and park and had good food and drinks. We did not visit the pool /beach area, but it looked very fun, so a great place to stop if you had kids.

    Be sure to stop and do these 2 hikes. The first is a challenging “straight up” hike to a valley lookout. This hike is steep and challenging so you will earn your waterfall swim afterward. Then go to the waterfall for a quick chilly swim – so refreshing after the lookout hike. The rangers are super friendly and helpful.

    This house is at the southermost point visitors should go, to see anything barely interesting in this uninviting town. The house is famous for Queen Elisabeth staying there during the British rule.
    It's across the brick St. John's Church, and at the time of our visit it was fenced with workers inside renovating it.
    It's better seen from the sea from your tender boat when going to/from your ship (cruise ships aren't docking, but tendering in Belize).

    The swing bridge connects the north side of Belize City with the south side and spans Haulover Creek, a tributary of the Belize River.

    This colonial style Supreme Court bldg is one of only two buildings worth seeing in Belize's major city.
    It stands at the beginning of the main Albert St, while the other one - the St. John's Church is at its end.
    However, it's just a quick photo stop and nothing more.

    We had originally booked a car with Avis, but when we arrived they did not have the type of car available. Avis coordinated with Crystal to get us a vehicle. crystal was great to work with. They honored the price quoted with Avis. The car was safe and reliable.

    I didn't want to go here because I heard a lot of stories about going in city but we tried it and survived. Area is very small and not much to see. It was amazing though to see how they set everything up differently. If you want to see it and not afraid of the city's stories then go see.
