One day in Belize city

by dppp

We will be in Belize City for one day as part of a cruise. What's the best touristy thing and the best local fun bar?

Re: One day in Belize city

I haven't been to Belize yet (I'll be going for the first time in January) so perhaps I'm not the best person to answer your question, but judging from what I've read so far, it seems like there isn't much to see/do in Belize City. Perhaps if you're not sick of being on a boat you could hop on a water taxi to Caye Caulker (45 min ride, http://www.cayecaulkerwatertaxi.com) and spend the day there. There you'll find a few bars, the II Bar and the Lazy Lizard seem to be pretty popular. Hope you enjoy your day in Belize!

Travel Tips for Belize City

My 50th Country

by Stephen-KarenConn

When Karen and I arrived in Belize it was a milestone for me because it marked the 50th country I have visited in my life, according to the list put out by the Traveler's Century Club. Belize was the 117th different place I have visited according to the much more extensive list on MostTraveledPeople.com.

At the docks we saw these two lovely native women who were wecoming people to Belize and posing for pictures. Of course they expected - and deserved - a tip for their effort. It was definitely a touristy thing to do ... and we took full advantage of it. After all, we are both travelers and tourists.

Run Down

by Bwana_Brown

Other than some of the downtown shops and the high-end cruiseship tourist facilities around Fort George and the north side of Haulover Creek, Belize City generally gives off the impression of a tired and rundown old colonial city. This building, located at the hub by the swing bridge, is the government Administration Building, housing offices of the Ministry of Finance & Treasury. Although located in the downtown core and very close to the cruiseship disembarkation areas, even this building looked very unkempt. The sides of the building looked like they could stand a good paint job to get rid of the mould and the big pile of trash on the street by the clump of trees did not help matters any. I guess it is just indicative of the lack of cash for infrastructure upkeep in Belize, maybe something that will improve as it more and more becomes a tourist destination. That being said, none of the other places we visited in Belize showed a lack of upkeep anywhere near like Belize City.

Fiction set in Belize City

by JetlagCity

I really wasn't expecting to find any books set in Belize City, let alone a prize-winner written by a local Belizean author, but I did, and it's a good one. Beka Lamb, by Zee Edgell, is a compassionate coming-of-age type story of a 12 year-old girl growing up in the heart of the city several decades ago. You get a good sense of the diversity and hardships of daily life in the city, and a taste of the politics surrounding the move for independence from Britain. Most of the story takes place in the Southern Forshore neighborhood, and the Fort George area. I found it on Amazon.com, and really enjoyed it. As far as I can tell, Zee Edgell is the only Belizean author to find much of an international audience so far.

Belize city

by a005116

Belize city is the former capital and the largest town of the country. With the many canals and the boats it has a special charm, although it is not Venice.

Although the city had a very bad name, crime is now decreasing much. While before police couldn't get control over some by gangs ruled streets, you can now walk around by day and night without problems.

This is a picture from the back of the Water Taci Terminal in Belize City. Belize City serves as a main hub of transportation. Here, you will find buses, airplanes and boats that will take you to wherever it is that you want to go. A taxi from the airport to the Water Taxi Terminal cost about 20USD per ride, not per person.
