Headed to AC for 5 days, but I want to take the boat over to Belize City to do a little exploring. Is this recommended? If so, what things can I do for a day in Belize City? Thanks for any help you can offer.

Becky, all the locals that live on AC sooner or later take the water taxi to Belize City for the day to shop or for appointments. Ask around and hook up with one, and tag along, they can help you explore.

Ask some of the service people you are familiar with, they probably have a family member or themselves, on their day off, going to BC.

Definately visit the Museum of Belize. More history? St John Cathedral. Lunch? My two new favs are Neri's on Queen and Daly (has a/c) or the more local one on Freetown road for Belize food. Or Gyros and Crepes, fabulous lebanese on Freetown Rd. What else? Birding? Shopping?

There is a community craft market right near the water taxi station. Also, a cool art gallery right near there, too, down the alley, off the street. A walk around the harbor, near "Embassy Row" (near Chatue Carribean Hotel) is a must. Lots of beautiful, old architecture,with the sea wall right there. And best of all, quiet and away from the hustle bustle. wink laugh

Becky, if you aren't in a big rush to get to AC, perhaps a night spent on your first day. Get a taxi from the airport, grab a nice room in a good part of the city, like the Colton House ( recommended ) and it's right in the heart of all of the interesting parts of Belize City.

Look at the map that's offered on the Colton House web site and see how close everything actually is, we walked to our room ( Colton House ) in about 5 minutes from the water taxi and the Raddison Fort George is across the street from the Colton House, and just a couple doors away from the Great House. LOVELY area.

Of course, this is taking one night away from AC, but it was certainly worth our stay for our last night in Belize. We only wished we had the time, that night, to go to some of the interesting places nearby. Next time !

Think it over. wink It's easier to do when you don't have to spend part of the day on the water and then, yet, have to return to the island.
Just a thought. smile

Our arrival time always conflicts with staying in the city, and having daylight hours to visit these areas, they close early. ( plus, we too had reservations elsewhere for night # 1 )

But sure was glad to have found the Colton House. smile
