Can I shop in Belize? What can I expect?
Belize is more of a vacation location for enjoying the outdoors and adventure. So if you are a mall person and that is what you love to do, Belize may not be the place for you; there are no malls in the country of Belize.
However, if you come to the country to experience a different culture and enjoy what the locals have to offer, than shopping may prove to be really a fun experience for you.
v The stores will be different then what you are used to in the US, from small family owned to those being governed by the Chinese community.
v They are busy, crowded, unorganized, and packed full of stuff. You will find a lot of open air markets, vendors, and small indoor shops tucked away in the small villages and even on some of the cayes.
v You are sure to find local souvenirs that are handmade including jewelry, wood carvings, landscape and animal paintings, woven baskets, blankets, table runners and much, much more.
v I personally love the colorful Mayan products and anything made out of the mahogany wood. It’s really fun to just sit with the artists and learn about them and why they make the items that they make.
Overall the people of Belize are friendly, warm, and very helpful if you need assistance. Belize is family orientated and everyone in the country is related. There is a melting pot of different cultures. You will find Mayans, Mennonites, Creole's, Garifuna and Mestizo. The other groups are Spanish, English, Lebanese, East Indian and Chinese. The people are what make Belize the special place that it is, along with the natural beauty of the country.
