Belize City

Belize's biggest urban center, Belize City is a culturally diverse seaside destination.
On the 29th (Sun), get to know the resident critters at The Belize Zoo and then stop by Moho Chocolate. On the 30th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get outside with Goff's Caye, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and then appreciate the history behind The Belize Sign Monument.

For traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Belize City travel route builder site.

Tokyo, Japan to Belize City is an approximately 22-hour flight. You'll gain 15 hours traveling from Tokyo to Belize City due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Tokyo in December, with highs in Belize City at °C and lows at °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to go by car to San Ignacio.
