You should be cautious where ever you go. The shops out back by the big gate well not that great felt alittle uncomfortable. Carnival said they were dropping it because of the extra $$ the govt was charging them.
To me, Belize is no worse than any other Caribbean port, they all have their so called bad areas!
I don't doubt the dropping is because of tendering costs, which don't exist at other ports. I was on Dream, and it was a huge undertaking, and would be a large profit loss to the cruiseline. I don't see why similar options can't be done at other ports.
