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.
