Took forever to get off the ship then had to endure a 30 minute ferry ride to Belize City.During the tour of the city, we were quite surprised with the dirtiness of the city. There was trash everywhere. There were empty lots full of trash. Very disappointing.Took over an hour to get to the zip line and cave tubing sites. Stopped at a small rest area before getting to the sites to use the bathroom. Staff at both adventures were very nice and very accommodating. When we finished we stopped back at the same rest area where we were fed a native meal and free rum punch - both were yummy. Once again we were rushed by the time we got back to the dock - less then 20 minutes to shop around before we had to catch the last ferry back to the ship. Read Less

Tour operator took our group on a tour of New belize and Old belize. It was quite depressing to see how the inhabitants live in such a beautiful island. Very suprised at the cost of gasoline. We are very fortunate to live in USA .

Once we got to the port, after a 20 minute tender ride, we walked around and had lots of salespeople trying to sell us tours. The first one was charging $40 for the city tour, we then walked a little further and another guy was charging $30, we told him that was too expensive, so he dropped the price to $20 each, and he said don't tell anyone you got it for $20. There were locals outside the fence holding signs through the fence saying come on tour with me, that was a little scary as they were not allowed to come into the "cruising shopping area". We got on the little volkswagon van that basically had the roof cut off and has straw roofs. We had a pretty good tour guide, he spoke the whole 1.5 hours. The city tour wasn't too impressive, nothing much really to see. They had soldiers in the street with their rifles to help control the crime. We were very unimpressed with Belize as we heard this was a beautiful place. Read Less

Belize was a disappointment. I have heard about Belize since the seventies when some British Army Friends couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it was. The reality of Belize City was dismal. The squalor was appalling. I have no real reason to ever return. The military, with assault weapons standing all over town was kind of disconcerting. The rum was nice... Read Less
