I knew I was in Belizewhen I saw this monument. Part of a beautiful morning walk, it was good to see and to take the standard tourist pictures in front of it. I love Belize!

Fun place to take photos. Try and stop over, it is very close to airport. Saw lots of people sitting in and on the letters for pictures. Fun!!!!

Not much to see here and the beach was a little dirty but we were able to crop it out of our pictures.

Stopped by on a cruise stop. It is about a 5 minute walk from Terminal 1 in port. We felt very safe. There is a smoothie shop right across from the sign and they are so nice and welcoming. The smoothie was awesome.

Beautiful bright sign is a quick visit and close to most hotels to where you can ask taxi driver to stop by. It’s a must to mark your destination. Big letters and doesn’t take long if there aren’t a lot of people there.

Most of the islands in and near the Caribbean have a sign depicting the name of the island or the city. This is a great stop for a picture.

It is safe, however the Belize sign is a total waste of time. You can see all you need to see from the ferry on the way in.

You'd have to drive from the airport to Belize City (roughly 15-20 min at most). The northern sign would probably be fastest to see if you just wanted to get in take a picture and get out. It's in a residential area and... More
