Belize City | Belize
Belize City, Belize offers old world charm. Locals refer to Belize City as just "Belize", which often confuses new travelers.
The city proper has an old world colonial feel to it. You see painted wrought iron railings, archways and everything is just a bit tattered but with a fresh coat of paint.
In the heart of town is the only working swing bridge of its kind in the world. It is manually opened twice a day to let the boats pass.
There are small shops which line the road by the bridge and here you will meet Ras Naphty who, with his wife, Sis Fahima runs the shop Rasta Connection. Their family spins, sews, knits and weaves to make rasta goods for travelers.
Experiencing the city goes very well with a most perfect Belikin beer!
