Does anybody know if there is any duty free shopping if you cross the border on a bus coming from Guatemala (via Flores)?

Do you mean the border at Benque Viejo del Carmen? To my best recollection there are no duty free shops there.

On the Guatemala side, this is a third world border crossing...pigs and chickens roaming around, pickup trucks with 20 people hanging on to them, vehicles parked in the middle of the road, ancient busses belching oily smoke etc.

The Belize side has a nice new building - with clean washrooms smile - for customs but I think that's it until you get into Benque.

Still amazed at the different feeling one has as soon as the bridge is crossed - coming and going.
