Awesome. Everyone is so friendly and there's a lot of good stuff there to purchase. Loved it and will do again some day hopefully.

No matter the country, the local will always suggest you buy your wares outside the terminals becasue in them you pay for the AC and fancy flooo tile. I couldn't agree more.

Definitely a man made tourist area for cruise ship passengers. Just how many t-shirts does one need? Cigars made on the spot and only two places to eat - Choose the Wet Lizard.

Nice little Belize village which was built for the tender boats to transport the cruise line passengers. Diamonds International is the first shop as you depart from the docks. Lots of little spots with various tee shirts and tourist type items. We were only there...More

Visited on a cruise recently. Plenty of vendors at port. The best part of visit was the wet lizard. Local food and Belkin beer were plentiful. Can't beat 2 beers for $5.00. The services was spot on.

Lots to see and buy. Prices were decent. Apparently they will stamp your passport even if you come in via tender boat.

This is the place where most of the tourists stay and where all the cruise ships coming in. But if you don't travel by cruise ship you should know that almost everything is close on the days without cruise. Which is Friday to Monday. If...More

Very close - you are basically in the area when you arrive. Talk to the people around the ticket booth. Very helpful. Careful of all the people selling stuff. Most are good but keep your wits. You will be fine. Nice place.

Anyone can access the shopping port area. It does seem to blend in with the the other buildings though. There are several entrances/exits. We even shopped and had our hair braided in the bus unloading lot. I believe the... More
