There’s a lot happening in the city.

Belize City

Take a stroll around town and check out the cultural and historical centers, as well as the colonial architecture. There’s also eclectic shopping and dining. Plus, just outside of town, there are mysterious archaeological tours and jungle river adventures in the rainforest.

As a busy port city, Belize City is the commercial center of the country. The largest hotels are found here, with conference facilities and professional services, as well as restaurants, bars, nightlife, Belize’s only cruise passenger terminal, the Museum of Belize and numerous historical sites. Quick connections—either by short flight or water taxi—to offshore islands make for great day tours of snorkeling, diving and relaxing.
