8 Ports You Can Skip

8. Belize City, Belize

Crime, poverty, and ramshackle infrastructure mean cruise ships anchor offshore and tender passengers ashore to awaiting buses for tours or boats for scuba excursions.

Our Advice: You'll find that Belize is much more appealing when you get away from its biggest city. The country's coral reefs and Mayan ruins are spectacular, so booking an organized tour is the way to go.
