Belize City

3.7
Belize's biggest urban center, Belize City is a culturally diverse seaside destination. Once a small Mayan town named Holzuz, the city gradually transformed into an industrial hub for the logging industry, which drew many newcomers and contributed to the area's diverse ethnic makeup. Today, Belize City is often overlooked due to its high crime rate and lack of beaches, but as the cultural center of the nation, it certainly has an interesting story to tell. On a tour of Belize City, you can roam busy roads and charming seaside parks, and in the process, experience the "real" Belize and the daily life of its people. Belize City is in Belize District. Use our Belize day trip planning site to arrange the details of your trip to Belize City and other destinations.
