  • One of Belize City iconic birds, the Macaw, and a highlight on all Belize vacations

Located at the mouth of the Belize River on the coast of the Caribbean is Belize City, the largest city in the country, serving on a trip to Belize as the country's principal port as well as its financial and industrial centre.

Once a small Maya city called Holzuz, Belize City was founded as Belize Town by British lumber harvesters in 1638. The town’s location on the water made it ideal for the British to ship and trade timber like mahogany and eventually became the home of many African slaves who were brought in to work the lumber industry. Belize City was the country’s capital until a terrible hurricane in 1961 devastated the region and the capital was moved to Belmopan located further inland.

Today, Belize City is a the country’s only major urban area and is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. The 21st century has witnessed more tourism in the city due to a surge in cruise ship visitors on their way to explore the country’s unique attractions on a Belize vacation. There is handsome colonial architecture as well as excellent shopping, dining and beautiful seaside parks. With the country’s largest hotels found in Belize City it is an excellent base from which to discover all that Belize has to offer.
