Continuing east along North Front Street, you’ll encounter an advance guard of trinket sellers, street musicians, hustlers and hair-braiders, announcing you’re near Tourism Village, Belize’s cruise-ship terminal. The Village itself is little more than a dock for the boats to disembark their passengers, and an attached shopping mall. Across the street, the Fort Street Plaza serves as an extension of the Village and includes a restaurant, bar and additional shops. A number of temporary vendors line the streets in this area, though the items tend to be overpriced; you’re better off buying souvenirs in town.
