  • What can I say? as I have...

    What can I say? as I have already mentioned earlier, the city is not very safe so I did not dare hanging out too much even I am usually not scared of nothing. A lot of creepy creatures are hanging out there and you don't know whether they are just friendly rasta dudes or whether they are some creeps trying to get your bucks. What I did is, I had a very nice walk through the entire town on sunday morning. First of all it was not so hot in the early hours and secondly, all the weirdos were still sleeping and made me feel quite safe. You can walk to the St. George Lighthouse, which if you are a beer drinker will follow you all over Belize as it is the brand symbol of Belize's second best beer - Lighthouse.

    My daughter wanted to have her hair braided!

    by joiwatani Written Oct 5, 2011

    For $10.00 you can have your hair braided in Belize City. There are many women here who can braid your hair fast!

    These are independent women who has little tiny stalls (nor parlors) and they braid hair and do also do manicure and pedicure for a very cheap price.

    My daughter Sierra, who is only 7 years old, wanted her hair braided but it takes at least an hour. To braid long hair sometimes takes a couple of hours- depending on the style of braiding.

    water taxi to Ambergris to snorkel/diving

    by siver Written Dec 17, 2008

    we arrived Belize city by a cruise, we did not buy snorkel tour from the cruise sine they are normally more expensive than the same tours from local tour company, and you would also support local economy if you spend your money to local business.

    we wanted to snokel in Hol Chan Reseve and see nurse sharks, so we took water taxi to Ambergris Caye, and bought a snokel tour with two stops: Hol Chan and Nurse shark, from a tour company on Ambergris. the water taxi is $15 round trip per person. the ride will be 75min one way. the snorkel tour is $40 per person(including $10 Hol Chan fee).

    The snorkel tour is normally $35, conducted two times per day, 9am and 2pm. since we arrived 8am in Belize, and arrived Ambergris at 10:30am, and need to go back the cruise ship by 4:30pm, we were happy to find a tour company willing to take just two of us to the reef for only $5 extra. the tour company is the first one outside of the water taxi terminal.

    we saw turtles, rays, nurse sharks, and so many other fishes.

    Ruins

    by PrincessK Written Dec 12, 2004

    Xunantunich (Stone Maiden) is the archaeological pride of Belize, although you might find it anticlimatic if you've seen Tikal or Copᮮ Set on a levelled hilltop near the Belize River close to the Guatemalan border, Xunantunich controlled the riverside track which led from the hinterlands down to the Caribbean coast. The site flourished as a ceremonial center and is thought to have been abandoned after an earthquake damaged it around AD 900. The site has not been extensively restored, though its tallest building - El Castillo - rises an impressive 40m (131ft) out of the jungle.

    Mayan Ruins

    by JonnyB82 Written Nov 30, 2004

    The Altun Ha Mayan Ruins, accessible via companies in Belize City, is an absolutely fantastic opportunity if you are down there. An interesting contrast to ruins outside Cozumel or Costa Maya, Mexico. Large structures, which you can typically walk on most of, wheelchair accessible (for those whom this is important to), and not a far drive at all. But let someone take you there, drivers in Belize, i found, are, well.. reckless at best, or you could consider it precision driving, but, Í'd leave precision driving to the professionals myself.

    Museum of Belize

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Built in the former Colonial era prison, this small but excellent museum is the top sight in Belize City. It features the history of Belize from Mayan time to independence from Britain.

    This church is made from bricks, which were brought over from England. I believe the tour guide said its the oldest church in Central America.

    Can you see the light?

    by kschatterbox Written Apr 15, 2007

    This is their lighthouse. I couldnt really get our tour guide to talk about it. All he said was that a rich guy came to town and gave them the money for it, so they had it built.

    Stroll around the Pier

    by realde14 Written Apr 13, 2004

    Belize City is a bit scary to walk around at night, but there are some interesting buildings to see, especially the US and Mexican embassies close to the Fort George Pier
