Fodor's Review

Many of the visitors here are tour groups from cruise ships, or boaters at the marina, but you can also visit the museum at Old Belize on your own (it's a BZ$20 taxi ride each way from downtown Belize City). In a large warehouse-style building, exhibits are devoted to the rain forest and the Maya, Garífuna, and Creoles in Belize City, with displays on logging, chicle harvesting, and sugar production. Some of the artifacts formerly housed at the Maritime Museum at the Marine Terminal are now on display here. Also at the site of the museum are a large marina; a restaurant where you can get a decent hamburger and other American-style dishes; a gift shop; and Cucumber Beach, a small man-made beach with a 600-foot zip line and a waterslide.
