Belize City Harbor and Marina, a busy interesting place
Belize City Harbor is a busy picturesque place and gate to Ambergris Caye and other Belize tropical islands in the Caribbean Sea.

After taking a jungle tour to visit the Lamanai Mayan ruins, we couldn’t miss Belize City – the largest city of the country, and explore it for about three days.
I have a lot of photos to show, but I think that the harbor deserves special attention, and here are some pictures that I found to be interesting:
Hundreds of boats, of all kinds and sizes are carrying merchandise and people through the three canals that connect the core of the city to the Ocean and further to the islands.
All sorts of tourists from all over the world of every budget and interest are blending in to the already very interesting mix of population, cultures and lifestyles of the city.
Due to the poverty level of people living here, Belize City Harbor is not a very safe place, especially after the sun goes down. However, it it’s a travel destination you should not ignore on your way down through Central America.
This is a picture of the Belize City Harbor at dusk, coming back from a Caribbean Island boat trip we took:
Oh, BTW: I also made a digital paint of this harbor scene for my art prints galleries – click on it to see it in a larger format:
Stay safe and enjoy your Belize travel! 🙂
