Belize City


You won’t find any skyscrapers in Belize City. What you will find is a lot of old dilapidated buildings and very friendly people. I enjoyed my two day stay in the “North Front Street Guest House.” I didn’t go to the Caye Islands because of the high price these days. It’s very easy to catch a water taxi in Belize City to the Islands for about 10 US dollars each way.

This photo was taken from the “swing bridge” and a whole slew of water taxis are behind it waiting to whisk you away to the islands.
Neat little building beyond the swing bridge.
A typical breakfast in Belize City of Eggs and sausage (hot dogs).

Old Belize

Museum admission: 10 US dollars
Swimming admission: 5 US dollars

Nothing old about it. Great place to park your million dollar yacht if you have one. This is basically a marina that has a 10 US dollar jungle museum, 5 US dollar swimming hole and a overpriced restaurant. I looked around for about 10 minutes and caught a bus back downtown. Now I heard the Museum was suppose to be good. The big slide into the swimming hole could be some fun.

Looks like a good and secure location to park your boat. They have security guards patrolling the area.



North front Street Guest House in Belize


Price: 10 US dollars

Location: 124 N Front St (just blocks away from the swing bridge). All the buses let you off at the swing bridge. Water Taxis are here to take you to the Cayes.

The North Front Street Guest House is a landmark location to park your weary body. The people are friendly and the rooms are secure. Clean shared cold water showers are downstairs. The rooms just have a bed and fan. Nice location to explore the real Belize and meet the locals. There are a couple of restaurants near by and a small store across the street to buy drinks and snacks.

Nice little porch to people watch and chat with the locals.
