If you've ever wanted to try a Cuban cigar -- an import which is illegal in the United States -- now is your chance. Habano Cigar Store features four humidors and and a smoking chair which allows guests to choose among a wide selection of cigars and light up.
Visitors interested in keeping abreast of the local Belizean arts and literature scene should head to Image Factory Art Foundation near the Water Taxi Terminal and Maritime Museum. Here, alongside an extensive collection of literature, is a constantly changing gallery that features locally produced pieces.
One of the most renowned artists in the Garifuna community, Pen Cayetano displays his works in an old colonial house that is almost as appealing to the eye as Cayetano's works. Stop in to browse and perhaps even take a piece of art home as a souvenir.
Maya Bags is located just two buildings to the right of Tropic Air, this unique handbag shop was created with the idea of empowering local women to design and create accessories inspired by the ancient Mayan people and local nature. Impoverished local women are trained in the art of design and able to earn a living selling their bags.
