Fun Day

Our kids had fun in the lagoon area, on the slide, and the rope swing. Has an area closer to ocean that is nice to sit at. Reasonably priced.

We were here as guests of the owner while we were working on a mission in Belize City. Thus, we stayed in the pavilion,surrounded by chickens, serenaded by roosters and chirping geckos, and visited by iguanas. We had access to the bathrooms, showers, and the beach pool (after 4). Cruise ship passengers take excursions to this site, so it has... More

When we got off the ship in Belize City, we asked where the best beach was. We were told that Cucumber Beach was the best and were shown beautiful pictures of it. White sand, blue water, etc. We hired a driver who drove us there and back for $20. He was awesome and talked to us the entire way there... More

Belize City was one of the stops on our cruise. We were recommended this place by a local. We paid $35 for a 30 minute tour of the city, then got dropped off at this beach for a few hours and then another 30 minute tour on the way back. This place doesn't have much appeal, the swimming area is... More

It is BEAUTIFUl to look at! But upon entering you swim around what looks to be lilly pads, but are collections of bacteria. My husband got sick after swimming in the water for about 15 minutes. I went down the water slide (I'm sure it was my own fault) and slightly dislocated my left shoulder. The place is very misleading,... More

This little swimming area appears to be man-made, and if so, they did a good job of it. It is sizeable enough for a crowd, and surrounded by clean sand and a nice walkway. I like its juxtaposition with the Caribbean Sea, which comes right smack dab up to the edge of Belize City. The swimming hole is separate from... More

I am looking for cucumbers but cannot find any. Where are they? Is this a beach? Sad, disappointing, depressing, "black sand" means garbage. This beach made me want to kill myself.

If you come here to see a beautiful white-sand beach and aqua-blue waters than this isn't it. This "beach" is a disappointment. Now, if you are told you that this is a man-made pool/watering hole than you know what to expect. All the locals will point you in this direction, and will speak highly of it. But doing your research... More

No one in our group wanted to do the cave tubing which is the big deal in Belize. SO we tendered out and got off and found this it was $25.00 per person for the taxi to bring us there and pick us up and $10.00 to get in. We did not expect much, we were told it was a... More
