Friendly Belizeans on a Belize City street

Belize City offers a cornucopia of historic and cultural landmarks and attractions as well as shopping and a profusion of restaurants and nightlife. Among the highlights is the new Belize Tourism Village, beautifully situated on the city's north side with a great selection of shops and restaurants as well as an Internet café. Inside the main building, a staffed information counter offers literature and suggestions for city bound tourists.

The even newer Museum of Belize is a small but world-class museum experience in a supremely designed environment. Its displays are well planned and presented and the whole place succeeds in painting an evocative and compelling picture of how modern Belize came to be. Exhibits of Maya artifacts along with explanations and timelines journey through 3000 years of the incredible Mundo Maya.

St. Johns Cathedral, Belize City

A planned trip to all the colonial landmarks will take you through most of the city, the architecture itself a mix of many European influences that reflect the multi-cultural nature of the place. The Maritime Museum, The Supreme Court Building, The Baron Bliss Institute that features the National Arts Council's displays, Government House Museum and St. John's Cathedral are recommended.
