2.1 Belize Port Assessment


Belize Ports

There are two primary ports, both of which are privately owned: Port of Belize City, owned by Port of Belize Limited, and Port of Big Creek, owned by the Big Creek Group. The port in Belize City is primarily a container port, while the Big Creek port concentrates more on agricultural products (bananas, fruit concentrates, sugar, etc.) and bulk cargo. Both ports have limitations with draught and berthing, and limited loading and unloading capacity. A third port, the port at Harvest Caye is a private port, dedicated exclusively to cruise ships.
