Belize City is famously the most populated city in Central America’s least populated country. As a cruise ship passenger you need
to be prepared to tender in (20 – 25 minutes) – there is a fabulous reef along much of the coast, so the ships are kept away from it.You land at the Fort Street Tourism Village where there are many shops, stalls, a few bars and several tourist trip vendors. You can walk through the village and have a walk around the town, although most take a taxi tour, booked on the boardwalk. Make sure that the driver shows you some of the lovely coast line, the light house, St Johns Cathedral and the National Handicrafts Centre. Lots of Mayan history here too, with the most famous being the Altun Ha site, about an hour outside the city.
