Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This crafty spot pops up out of nowhere as you are traveling from San Ignacio through Belmopan. You can't help but want to stop and you'll be glad you did. Countless things to feast your eyes on, from the trinkety to the grand and everything in between. If you need a memento to carry home, this is the place to stop. On top of it, there is a beautiful, bright and airy cafe attached to the center. The coffee and chocolate are amazing and the ice cream is outstanding (especially after a long day out spelunking or cave tubing).

Enjoyed the visit. And purchased several items. For my family. When I got home I was sorry I didn't get more items. I’m sad to discover that you don’t have a cataloge to purchase on line,

This store might be an arts and crafts store for the locals but is an excellent place for tourists to pick up souvenirs. They have everything from t-shirts and hats to collectible patches, spoons, and stickers, not to mention some of the best wood carvings around. There’s also a great coffee shop within that serves a wide variety of coffee and snacks. The Art Box is also a great pit stop between the airport and the resorts in the rainforest and beach. Clean bathrooms and a great excuse to stretch your legs. You won't leave empty-handed, I guarantee.

We stopped in here on our way from Belize City to San Ignacio. There is an impressive variety of Caribbean arts and crafts available for purchase. The stairway to the second floor features a very interesting handrail.

This is a large store with things made of native woods, local paintings, plus plenty of typical touristy souvenirs including coin sets and stamps.

Don't miss the bathrooms right inside the front doors....really filled with personality.

I was looking for a birthday gift for my wife and someone suggested I visited Art Box. They had so many gifts there that it was almost impossible to choose one gift. the staff patiently took me round explaining and recommending here and there.
Finally I got an excellent gift that my wife liked so much and the price was affordable. Next time you are looking for a gift, visit the Art Box.

So many items, it was hard to choose souvenirs! The woodwork is impressive and the store has 2 stories of furniture, jewelry, clothing, arts and crafts. I wish we'd have more time to stay and shop. Definitely worth the time to stop - bathrooms are clean.
