As promised here is third batch of pictures from our Belize City vacation – Belize City shopping still come. These ones cover the Princess Hotel and Casino as well as some things I saw while walking around town when I took break from blogging the freeroll poker tournament.
I wanted to find a shop so I could get some water and a snack for later. The woman at the desk said that there were no stores open as it everything in Belize City was closed for Independence day celebrations. Since I do not mind walking I was pretty sure I could one somewhere close by.
I followed the water for a bit then went off to a side street and found Kum Hua Shop was open – scored a couple of bottles of water and some m&m’s. I continued on my walk as far as the swing bridge then looped back around to the Princess – thanks to a nice family who confirmed I was heading in the right direction. Still need to get a better handle on Belize City streets. I wish I knew where my friend Mark was he had always planned to walk the city with me.
While there I also had to run an important errand and pick up a package from Taca Warehouse on Central America Blvd. We caught a cab from the resort and got Solomon Mangar taxi service 635-2127. He was great, knew exactly where we wanted to go and he got out and opened my door every time I had to go to a different Taca building and get back in the cab. He charged us $28 BZD to go from our resort to Taca [about 3 miles], wait while I got the paperwork, drove to a near by building so I could pay for customs, drove back the warehouse to get my package and dropped us off downtown.
We caught a second Cab that took us from the Bliss Center to Municipal Airport for $10 BZD Blayne Coleman taxi and tour service. 601-7318. [same price we paid from Municipal to our resort which is about a mile]
