Explore the highlights of Belize City and indulge in a rum tasting!
A double treat awaits you in Belize: city highlights and delicious rum! Discover the architectural diversity of Belize City. Your tour takes you down narrow streets hugged by old colonial buildings among modern structures which give the city its quaint charm. View the many historical landmarks that add flavor to this small bustling city. Notice the country’s rich cultural fusion of British, Scottish, Spanish and Mayan heritage. A stop at the Belize Museum, a former colonial prison, showcases superb exhibitions of Belize’s culture, history, flora and fauna. When your total Belize City experience is complete, embark on your second treat: a tour of Belize’s Traveller’s Rum Museum. This is the home of the world-famous One Barrel Rum, highlighting the history of rum, rum-making, and a taste of its many tempting Belizean flavors.
Belize has had a long relationship with rum dating back to the time of the buccaneers and Rum Runners in the early 1920s. Local legend has it that Belize City was literally built on rum bottles, and history tells of Belizean schooners making runs to the Louisiana coast during Prohibition.
Continue tasting rum as you move on to where spirits are aged, blended and stored. Keep the cocktails flowing at the full service bar whose counter was made from remains of an old rum runner ship. Purchase a few more cocktails while being lulled by intoxicating Belizean and Caribbean vibes. Don’t forget to purchase any of over 20 different rum brands at factory prices, as well as Traveller’s memorabilia in the Travellers gift shop.
