Belize City Tour
Assistant Staff: Sol
You should take a photo with BELIZE monument. Actually we have 2 monuments, one near Tourist Village, and another in Sea Shore Park. We recommend taking photos in Sea Shore Park because it is less crowded than Tourist Village one.
After taking lots of photos, let’s go shopping at Brodies. It is a supermarket and they have GOSS chocolates, coffee, rum, wine and beans made in Belize. And also you can see daily life of local Belizean people.
St. John’s Cathedral is a big cathedral whose construction was started in 1812 to use bricks as an effective way which was used as a weight to export mahoganies. Front walls and inner joists still keep the original form. You can see Government House of England behind this cathedral. It is also retain the original colonial features.
Our guests got really excited when they found iguanas by the roadside. Belizean eat green iguanas, but you can see only brown iguanas on roads or trees.
Belize City has many narrow roads and one-way streets. What is interesting in Belize City is that we don’t have any working traffic lights. Roads are narrow and we have many bumps, so our daily transportation still works.
Moreover, we have really colorful houses in the city. Each houses has house number, but we usually use the name of street and the color of the house for taxis and mails. We don’t have doorbell neither but we have guard dogs instead.
