    Set up outside the cruise terminal is a small crafts market where we bought a couple of trinkets, I got a book mark with a worry doll on the bottom, you'll see a lot of crafts with these little people on them. The Mayans believed that if you whisper your secrets to the worry dolls and then place them under where you sleep that all of your worries...

  • Refrigerator magnets

    I collect refrigerator magnets and that's the first thing I buy whenever I go to a particular destination. I buy at least five and bring them home as gifts, too.You can buy refrigerator magnets at different gift shops. I prefer to buy refrigerator magnets that are made of rubber because even if they fall from the refrigerator, they won't break...

  • Gas (Petrol) Stations

    A company that saw our business was Shell, with their petroleum stations located at strategic spots. We filled up our rental vehicle at one just outside the international airport when we picked it up and once again in Belmopan (shown here) when we were on our way back to drop it off. Although the Belize $ is pegged at two for every US$, they use...

  • Shopping

    DO NOT shop at the large market in downtown San Pedro. Buy your snacks at the tiny individual marketplaces. The large shop in town that most taxis take you directly to does not have any prices on the merchandise and they charge what they want. Usually twice the price of the smaller street shops.

  • Chinese shops and veggie markets

    Food is available mainly in Chinese shops. Shopping food means going to about 5 different shops to get what you want. Belize mainly offers products imported by US, but is far from a shopping paradise. Fruits and Vegetables are available on city markets. Ask locals to find your way there. Be aware that food is not really cheap in Belize, even if you...

  • Fresh Produce

    During our final week, we made our way into San Ignacio on two different occassions and both times ended up at the local Market. It was noticeably busier on the Saturday than it had been on our earlier Wednesday visit, with about 3 times as many stalls in business displaying their goods for sale. The main part of the market is covered with a tin...

    We used internet cafes a couple of times during our trip, the first time on Caye Caulker and again a few days later in Dangriga, on the south central coastline.In Dangriga, we were looking for Val's Laundry & Internet as detailed in my Handbook. We discovered that it was not working, so we headed further downtown and parked at the bus terminal...

  • Convenience Stores

    All the towns and villages in Belize seemed to have at least one mini-supermarket or convenience store of some sort where you could buy a few basic items on short notice! On Caye Caulker, we used either the Chan Mini Mart or the Friendship Shopping Centre: things like a container of dry-roasted peanuts, some water bottles, Belikin beers and bottles...

  • Slate Carvings

    You can find slate carvings in every souvenir shop or streetside vender in Belize. However, the best place to buy them is along the Mopan River bank, near the entrance to Xunantunich. Here you can buy the carvings directly from the artists, making them cheaper. In addition, we found that their selection was of higher quality and offered more...

  • I Heart Credit Cards

    All the shops in San Pedro are the same, and prices are comperable everywhere. All the touristy items are priced high, so if you get a chance to buy anything before you get to the islands, I would do it. The cost of shipping to an island is reflected in the tax on all their products. You'll be amazed at the high grocery store prices, so it's best...

  • Prices are Cheap in Belize

    The US dollar is worth 2-1 over the Belizean dollar so spend away. The prices at the small port in Belize City were tourist prices, but if you go in the city things change. I bought a six pack of coke, Belikin Beer, and a bottle of water for about $4.50 Get a local Beer $0.75
